    How to clean Apple products

    Apple also gives instructions on how to clean your Mac in the User Guides for the MBA, MBP and iMac:
    Also, you'll find plenty of suggestions by searching through the many existing threads on this topic.

    No soap, no chemicals, just a micro fibre cloth after each use to remove fingerprints....The buddies who got my iPad one and two will testify to the fact that they are pristine.

    As posted by GGJ, this practice also applies to notebooks and laptops...slightly off topic, but the one real toughie to clean is my iMac....The micro fibre "Drags" on the surface of the screen, and I never seem to get a really good job done.

    I've swiched to using a fine varnishing brush for dust removal...Seems to work.

    Ostrich feather duster and a riot batten for any one who tries to finger the screen or goes to Cough anywhere near it!
    These methods have worked so far.

    I use a microfiber cloth that's originally for camera lenses, occasionally I also add few droplets of water that I carefully wipe away with the same cloth.

    This works great, I learned this from my dad who is a service engineer in the medical field, says this is what they use.

    80% water
    20% alcohol
    Couple of drops of soap.

    Use lint free microfiber.
