Ok, so Apple's own page about taking care of the laptop and cleaning it seems a bit bare to me. So what exactly is a good approach to cleaning that layer of grease off the keys/trackpad/palm rest of the unibody Macbook Pro?
I do plan on getting a keyboard protector soon, but prior to that I'll need to clean these first, so any suggestions on what works is welcome. I do wash my hands with soap prior to using the laptop. To clean it, I've tried wiping the affected areas down with a damp cloth just as the manual says. I've also tried using a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to try and wipe it off, but for some reason the grease still seems to be there. This accumulation of slick is slowly bothering me now.
So how exactly did you do it?
