    sandpaper... ... ...

    :p

    try dampening a cloth and just wipe it down... just damp though, you don't want to much water. If they're greasy, try the same thing but with windex instead.

    It's generally recommended to you use a soft microfiber cloth lightly moistened with water. Do not use any alcoholic based solvents.

    +1 a damp cloth works miracles both on the screen and on the case.

    yeah, just use water, we had a guy come in the store last week who had used Cillit Bang on his 2 day old Macbook Pro (im not sure if you get it in the US but its basically like pure acid except its an alkali anyway) his outer unibody casing felt like it had been sandpapered, and the screen was covered in blotches where it was no longer glossy anymore..permanently.. needless to say it wasnt covered under warranty.

    I would recommend to use Hydrochloric Acid, but only for the outer casing. DO NOT put the HCl on the screen. For the screen I would recommend something just a tad bit stronger like Nitric Acid. These two will definitely do the trick for you.

    I always use iClear on my MBP or my iMac. Works really well.

    Use the cloth that comes with your Aluminum MB to clean it. Damp it a little and wipe the screen and be sure to shut down your MB :)
