    I use Endust anti-static wipes for electronics. Cleans well and doesn't leave any particles behind.

    iKlear & iKlear polish

    What’s the difference between iKlear and iKlear polish? After watching some YouTube videos on it I have come up with 2 assumptions:

    1) There is no difference between the liquid in either bottle.
    2) The only reason why they call it iKlear polish is that it comes with polishing
    cloths.

    Are my assumptions right or wrong? tia

    damp sock + dry sock for the screen
    damp sock for the case + keyboard (same as the screen but after the screen)

    Unless yours is a unibody (glass screen) do not use windex/alcohol.

    I use water and the pad that came with my MBP. The only thing i cant seem to get rid of is the tiny scratches that some how got on my screen :( And the dark little spots on the screen that have appeared out of nowhere. Anybody ever had this and/or know how to get rid of it:confused:

    another +1 for iKlear

    Works SO well on EVERY surface, and leaves it feeling so smooth.

    iKlear is what they use @ the Apple Store and the reviews were so good that I ordered the Complete Kit which should be arriving pretty soon.

    Feather duster for screen and keyboard, canned air for between keys and inside. I use a natural surface cleaning solution for smudges on the casing and the like.

    feather duster for the screen for light dust
    iklear and a microfiber cloth for the screen for smudges
    Pledge for electronics or 3m computer cleaner + microfiber cloth for the body

    * i used to use compressed air until a bad experience where specks of dust got sprayed between the back light and LCD. Since that happened i do not use compressed air anymore :)
