Hi!,

does anyone know the best way to clean a MacBook? I just spent about 20 minutes rubbing mine down with Windex and a paper towel and it still just smudges dirt around. Is there a better solution? Mines white, so its even harder to clean.

I searched the forum and I found multiple threads about this subject. One suggestion was Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.

Don't use Windex on your screen!
The more you use Windex the more it will wreak the film and gloss on your screen (if you have a gloss screen).

Be sure to get the magic eraser that doesn't foam up though.

My Mackenzie is in a bad need of a good cleaning. I was thinking of using the magic eraser. How wet (if any) can I get the keys? What's the best thing to clean under the keys? My computer is about a year and a half old, so it's really starting to show all the little fuzzes and crumbs and stuff.
