    Safe screen wipes for MBP
    Whats a reliable screenwipe to use for MBPs. I currently used kleen & dry by read right and the cloth is might be too wet for the screen. Any suggestions would be helpful thx.

    Dunno, I'm still trying to find some decent ones for mine that aren't too pricey.

    This is taken from the Apple website::

    Cleaning Your MacBook Pro Display
    Follow these general rules when cleaning the screen.
    Shut down your MacBook Pro, detach the power adapter, and remove the battery.
    Dampen a clean, soft, lint-free cloth or paper with water only and wipe the screen. Do not spray liquid directly on the screen.

    Specs:
    8GB iPhone, MacBook Pro (15",2.33 C2D), MacBook (2.0 C2D), 4 iPods (20GB, Mini, Nano, Shuffle)
    I bought one of these tonight at CompUSA for $7.99: 3M Microfiber Electronics Cloth. Seems good enough, plus it's reuseable and machine washable. The directions say you can use it dry or slightly damp. Handy to keep in the laptop bag.

    Cheap, safe and effective:

    Take sheet of Bounty paper towel off roll
    Wet completely with lukewarm water--nothing else
    Squeeze out thoroughly until no more water drips out
    Examine screen and blow off any grit if present
    Open damp paper towel and use to gently wipe screen
    Let air dry
    After cleaning screen, use the damp paper towel to gently wipe down keyboard, wristrests and trackpad.

    Other advice:

    Keep a sheet of plain white printer paper between keyboard and screen when closed to prevent transfer of anything from keyboard
    Don't eat or drink while using your laptop

    I have been doing this for years: through PowerBook 180, PowerBook 1400c, Pismo and now PB G4 12 1.33. My screens have always stayed in mint condition.

    Enjoy

    Specs:
    15" MacBook Pro, 13" MacBook Black, 15" iMac G4, 24" iMac (soon!)
    Avoid anything with alcohol in it, I use Klear Screen, Apple's officially recommended solution (all Apple stores carry it) and I dust my screen with one of RadTech's screen protectors (which I put on the keyboard before closing the lid).

    Actually the towel dipped in lukewarm water worked for me.
