Somehow I have managed to get pen marks (a roller ink) on my iMac at work, on the aluminium. Not to mention grubby finger marks. Feeling I should clean it soon before anyone notices…

What is safe to use to clean the aluminium casing (to at least get off the dirty finger marks and smudges) and what type of cloth do I need to use?

I recommend to use micro fiber cloth for wipe the dirty things. So it won't scratch surface of your iMac.

I usually use eucalyptus oil (in indonesia). I don't know if it available in your country or not.
Oh wow! I was expecting some kind of alcohol or chemical fluid! Will it not make it super oily? I'm sure I can find some in London.

I'm afraid to clean my MBP with chemical oil. :(
Alcohol will be nice if you get it with cheap prices, cause it got high prices here. :)
