    I have a lens cleaner that I got from my optometrist for my glasses.

    I was wondering if it would be safe to use to clean my Alu Macbook screen? The label says it is "safe and effective on any lens or coating." Although it does say it contains isopropanol.

    My grandpa has things like that for his glasses. Ive used them before.
    I bought a microfiber cloth from Target and it works SO good! I dont even have to wet it. But yea, you can use eye glass cleaner

    ur screen shouldnt get that dirty unless ur touching it all the time. you shouldnt even need to clean it everyday. just buy some air in a can and blow the dust off.if you go get marks on it just use a damp cloth and get one of them microfiber cloths to dry. i read someone here kept cleaning his screen with some icleaner stuff all the time and the gloss or some stuff on the screen was coming off.

    The "gloss on the screen came off" ??
    Most likely he wiped it so much it caused minor scratches, basically buffing down the gloss on the piece of glass.

    Same. I find that with a good microfiber cloth, you don't have to use liquid to clean up your MacBook.

    Use only a microfiber cloth and moisten it with plan water.

    Agreed microfiber cloth and water, dont go spraying it with chemicals of any kind, not necessary and dont take the risk.

    2000 grit should be fine. Won't cause too much damage and will get the crust off. :eek:

    The screen on the alu MB is glass. WTF use Windex if you like, it will not damage it ( spray it on the cloth first not the MB) .

    Oh lord, you sure the grit is not to soft at 2000:D, I just use a micro-cloth and water for screen, case and Speckbook cover, works like a charm.
