    I know you don't want to get liquid below the keyboard, is there a dry cleaning solution that can actually get it pretty clean or what should I do?

    I'll use Mr. Clean "magic eraser" and a couple of shots of "gas duster" to get all the dust and what-not out of the keyboard, spray iKlear on the microfiber cloth, (two squirts should do) then polish it with the polish cloth. I use iKlear on the rest of my BlackBook. Good as new. :p

    For those pesky little crumbs/dust/lint, use a piece of Scotch Tape and lift those dust particles away.

    try an alcohol liquid (i.e. aftershave/cologne) in a cotton bud/Q-tip. Cleans it up good due to the alcohol and leves it smelling Luurvley

    I use my blackbook on remote locations. I can tell you a flat painting brush works better than an air duster for keyboard and screen.
    Last week I was working at a very dusty and windy location so I bought an Iskin for the keyboard at the applestore and I'm still trying to get used to it but it protects the mac great.

    We use the ShaggMac Grubby Sticks w/ Optimist Prime cleaner with excellent results. The swabs can safely "scrub" away grime.
