    After a week, with my new mac, I can notice some lightly out of color steins on my MBPR, and I'm afraid water will wipe out the color.

    No. Just a bit whiter than the color of the MBP.

    My 2010 MBP was looking a little dirty around the wrist rest area. I took a slightly damp microfibre cleaning cloth and wiped with a little pressure around the area.

    The dirt came right off and made the area look all shiny and new again.

    I do this every couple months or so and I haven't experienced any discolouration of the aluminium.

    I go get that too. What is it anyway? I think it's sweat from hands and fingers?

    I just use micro cloth to wipe it or maybe add a little hand wiping alcohol.

    It's most likely sweat from your palms that eats away at the aluminum and causes discoloration. Clean it daily with a damp cloth and wash your hands!

    Don't forget to brush your teeth too, bad breath can damage the display especially high res retina ones. And if you have an LG one... OMG!

    Just use a wet cloth or something and wipe it off.
