    Just got the new 13" MacBook Pro a few weeks ago. Since then, the trackpad has gotten slightly dirty. Sometimes it's a little sticky because my fingers are a bit moist/not completely dry. I have a little Apple cloth originally intended for my iPod Touch, but that only really cleans the screen of my MBP. What's the most efficient way to clean the trackpad? I don't know how water would react with it (if I used a damp cloth). Being a newbie to Macs, what do you guys use?

    I usually take the microfiber cloth that came with my Mac and clean the trackpad. It usually works pretty well, actually. If it is still dirty, I take a EXTREMELY light amount of water onto the microfiber and wipe it down. However, make sure it is barely nothing .

    I used a baby wipe on mine, really scrubs up all the dirt, don't use a wet cloth, that's asking for trouble :p
