    I use iKlear, but I heard that there is better out there. Any suggestions?

    I have a cloth that is much like the one you get with an iPhone to just wipe any threads or dust that will randomly appear. To clean the screen and wipe the case down, I use a microfiber cloth with this solution made specifically for laptop screens... I don't remember the name and can't look it up atm because my brother took it to college with him...

    I clean mine in the dish washer, I suggest you do the same. Cascade works wonders. :)

    I found that a wet lint free cloth rung out till is pretty much dry does the trick, for the screen, keys and the case.

    Might give i-klean a go tho, sounds good.

    I use Monster ScreenClean and the cloth that comes with it. No streaks and works well.

    I'm a fan of Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Worked wonders on my macbook, left it white like new, and it works very well on both the mbp's surface and screen.

    A baby wipe (wet wipe?) whatever there called.

    You are pretty mad if you are using iKlear at £10 a bottle to clean your glass screened iMac. Use Windolene, thats what it was made for, to clean glass.

    iKlear may do a good job but they can spin on it if they think they can charge that kind of money for something that cost pennies to make.

    I use iKlear on mine, my MacBook Pro looks like it did the day I unboxed it! I'd highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to maintain their Apple products.

    Baby Wipe Then Microfiber everymonth, Monster Screen Clean on the Screen depending on state.

    Day to day, lick my finger and rub the mark, my MBP gets quite messy :p

    :eek:

    I use a damp paper towel. Works fine for me, though that's probably not the best way to clean it.

    Once I licked my thumb to try to get a smudge off. Then I used the cloth that came with my MBP.

    So I just use the cloth now. Or my finger if its on the casing.

    Any ideas how to unclog the pores (speakers)?

    Puffs

    High quality Kleenex or Puffs (lotion-free, of course!!) I use two....I wet the 1st with water, wipe off screen. Then use 2nd to dry. Then I use them to wipe keys & trackpad area. Perfectamundo. Cheap. Works. Never a scratch.
