I own a intel imac. And there is dust and stuff getting on the screen. And I'm wondering what is the best way to clean the screen.

And do I have to remove all the keys off the keyboard to get at it properly to clean it. Or is there an easier way?

Thanks.

For screens, I use the same sort of cloth I use to clean my glasses, BUT NO CLEANING SOLUTION. If I need to clean something off, I dampen a portion of the cloth in clean water, and very little of it.

For keyboards, ditto. Damp cloth, clean water... and a vacuum, yes a vacuum. Rather than take the keys off, vacuum your keyboard with a crevice attachment applied - these are the ones that focus the head of the vacuum down to a narrow slit, good for getting into crevices ... and between rows of keys.

I have done this successfully for many, many years. Good luck!
