    hey I was wondering what everyone uses to clean their keyboards. I used baby wipes on my old white macbook, but I don't wanna use it on my macbook pro, since I'm not sure if the liquid would seap into the keyboard backlighting or not

    How to clean Apple products

    Apple also gives instructions on how to clean your Mac in the User Guides for the MBA, MBP and iMac:
    Also, you'll find plenty of suggestions by searching through the many existing threads on this topic.

    Microfiber cloth dampened with tap water will clean anything and everything on a MacBook Pro.
    Except the glass screen. Then you need a dry microfiber cloth to polish it after wiping with the damp one.

    I have used eye glass wipes too. They clean the plastic keys well, but leaves finger print oils on the touch pad. I have found that alcohol wipes are good at removing the oils from the touch pad surface. But I do not use them on the keys as I do not know if it would discolor the keys.
