    15.4 MBP, glossy display....how to clean?
    I have searched the forum for some insight for the answer to my question of:

    How to clean the display/screen of my MBP with a glossy display?

    So far, I am leaning towards iKlear...a product available through apple. I have however heard of this streaking? In the threads I looked at, nobody really distinguised if they had a glass, matte, or glossy screen? Also, the alluminum, silver finish on my MBP, how does a person clean that? I'm assuming with a damp towel and extra care, but I'm not going to try something that I have no idea if it will leave scratches or marks or whatever else. Any help/suggestions/experiences are greatly appreciated!

    the iKlear stuff is good from what I hear, but pricy for what it does....i clean mine with "nice'n clean anti-static cleansing wipes" a box of 20 is less than $2 at walmart. They work great, and they also clean up any smudges on the outside of the case as well.

    ^Thats great. You can also use a nice soft cloth and a little bit of water.

    This may happen when sprayed directly onto the screen, which is to be avoided anyway.

    As Greenredfield pointed out in Post#3, a clean, soft, lint-free cloth or paper with water should be OK in normal situations.

    While we're at it, what about cleaning the matte display?

    I use the same wipes as above on my old ibook.
