    Hello guys,

    Recently I bought myself a new macbook pro to replace my old one. One problem that I had on the old one was the the keyboard was actually with stains. Like oil stains that I cannot remove. I have tried many things.
    Do you know how can I remove those? How to properly clean the keyboard?

    Try using a "Magic Eraser" (sold in supermarkets, etc.) Do not use any kind of liquid or abrasive as it will either ruin the keyboard, or in the case of liquid, seep on to the logic board underneath. You can also buy key cap kits on eBay to replace the key caps instead of trying to clean them. Not an easy job though removing and replacing key caps.
