General Rules when Cleaning the MacBook Display

  1. Shut down your MacBook and unplug the power adapter.
  2. Dampen a clean, soft, lint-free cloth with water only and wipe the display. Do not spray liquid directly on the screen. Abrasive cloths,towels, paper towels, and similar items may cause damage to the items.

You may also use a mild glass cleaner that contains not alcohol, acetone or ammonia. Most office supple stores sell cleaning kits specifically designed for this purpose. Apple has tested a product called Klear Screen, made by Meridrew Enterprises and has found it does not cause any harm to the plastics in the display.

*Note: If liquid does make its way inside your Apple product, contact District Tech as soon as possible. Liquid damage is not covered under the Apple product warranty or AppleCare Protection Plans.
