Whats the best way to clean a MacBook Pro case? I know for the white plastic Macs, a Mr Clean Magic Eraser works the shiiiiiiit. Makes any old grimy MacBook look brand new. What about the current aluminum MacBook Pros? They have kind of a porous surface, i feel like the magic eraser will make it dirtier not cleaner. Thoughts

I'd just use Klear Screen and microfiber on the whole thing if it was me.

To say the least, it's not gonna hurt anything.

I ended up just using paper towel and windows on the whole thing. Came out nice and clean.

I'm sorry to hear that. Not what I would've done.

I know what you meant. That treacherous stuff with ammonia in it.

Too late. It also came out perfectly clean and spotless. As expected, I mean the LCD does have glass over it. And windex IS glass cleaner. . .

Mild detergent and paper towels works well. Dilute a drop or two of dish soap in water.
