they make aluminum wipes, you can probably find them at target. THey are in a tube shaped package and look like the armor all wipes.

Use the Rep System!

To be honest, I use the monster iClean on the aluminum and it works fantastic for smudges, dirt etc.

I use iKlear Apple Polish and it is fantastic. Use it all over, keys, monitor, case et all!

I simply fold up a paper towel, get it wet on one of the corners, and squeeze it out, then just rub away the dirt and immediately dry it. It works quite well for me!

I second voided3's method. I dampen a paper towel, squeeze it out real well. I wipe down the case and immediately follow along with a dry paper towel. Works like a charm.
