    How do you all clean/wash your little black Apple cleaning cloth for your MBP? I love the way mine works on the glass screen, but at times I think it accumulates oil from my hands. Also, where can I order a new one? Thanks :D

    You can easily wash it in very mild dish or hand soap. It still has the same texture once it's dry.

    Do Apple provide these with MBPs? Seeing as my friends & family have purchased a uMB, MB & an iMac in the last few years, only the iMac purchase has got one of these.

    My early 2009 15" MacBook Pro (unibody, last model with a removeable battery) came with the cloth...

    In reference to where you can get another cleaning-cloth, most of the Apple stores that I have been to have a product called iKlear. The employees there use this brand to clean all their machines inside the stores. They come as a kit, including wipes and 3 different cloths, and typically cost $19.99. I use this product and feel it definitely cleans away all dust particles and oil marks from the screen and all other of the machine's components. Try it out.

    I also got my cloth with my 13 MBP. You usually get similar cloths with IpHone screen protectors. I've ordered 3 and got a cloth with each one of them.

    Any mild soap will work...just make sure to rinse it out real well or you will be smearing soap residue all over your screen.

    As an alternative, if you don't have one, just pick up a pack of microfiber cloths from your local auto parts store. This and a little hot breath will be equally effective than anything sold at the Apple Store and will cost much less. For tough dirt or oil, a quick spray of glass plus on the cloth should do the trick.

    I have the new 15" MBP and I did not get a cleaning cloth. I'll go open the box and double check, but I'm pretty sure there isn't one in there. :confused:

    BRB...

    Okay, I'm back. It turns out that I did indeed get one! I can't believe I never noticed that before!
