    I tend to use my keyboard flipped back a lot as a place for my stand to rest a lot. I'm usually able to wipe away most dust and lint. But what about any stains and such?

    Should we use a special cleaner to take it off and will it damage the cloth or the parts inside?

    I use a Microfiber clothe with a mild cleaner (I actually use LCD Cleaner most of the time). Spray the clothe not the cover.

    Also low-tack tape removes some of the more stubborn palm rest marks....

    If for some reason you decide to use Lysol wipes, be very careful with the trackpad. It cost me one keyboard.

    I use Zeiss screen wipes or a wet microfiber cloth on the screen and keyboard. The Zeiss wipes are sold in places like Walmart and Amazon and work well as they don't release any lint onto the surfaces. Microfiber rags are sold everywhere, but I prefer the type with a nap versus the smooth ones sold with eyeglasses.

    I prefer the smooth ones for the screen, the ones with a nap for the keyboard.
