    Apple officially says that you should clean the MacBook keyboard with compressed air:

    However, no mention of the new MBPs. I was wondering - do you think the same applies to them? Is it safe to do?

    Oh yeaaah that'll be fine. I wouldn't be concerned. The ol' compressed air is the stable "won't void your warranty" way of cleaning things.

    Just avoid the hot soapy water and you'll be okay. :D

    I have used compressed air on mine with no issues.

    Try open it,turn it upside down,and blow slow and carefully,I even cleaned mine with a workshop compressor,but if you use one of those,be sure to have reduction valve and oil remover filter installed on the air pipe.
