    Hello,

    I just got a Macbook Pro a few weeks ago, and It seems like it's impossible to clean the outside of it, I mean the aluminum part where the Apple's logo and etc... I tried cleaning it in different ways but the dirt stays and it just gets bigger.

    Anyone have suggestions?

    Thank you!

    Yeah I know exactly what you mean man. I've has mine for little under a year, but it looks older by the amount of dirt it attracts.

    I use a micro fibre cloth and dampen it with water to clean off the grim all over, harmlessly. For crevices, I take an ear bud and damped one end and go into the hard to reach places, using the dry side to dry it up.

    Picture? I have no problems with dirt accumulating on the outer case.

    I've never had a problem keeping the aluminum on my Pro clean either. I do have a difficult time with the screen though since the whole thing is covered in glass. Like the people who have replied above me I also use a damp microfiber cloth to keep mine clean.

    I wipe it with a damp cloth once a day. No need to use any special alcohol wipes or solvents :)

    Hate to clean your MBP? Get a hard cover case so you don't have to worry about anymore.

    Then you have to clean the hard cover case... or buy a new one every week.

    I use rubbing alcohol pads on the aluminum - works for me

    Sounds like it's scuff marks and not dirt. Dirt should come off fairly easily.
