Re: MacBook air smudges/stains

I am not certain but for all of my electronics with a screen I take a non abrasive cleaning towel and gently wipe away the smudges. I have actually seen that companies manufacture towelletes or wipes for this purpose but feel they are a scam.


Got them at a populat electronics store, 6 for $3.99 so it may work for you if you're gentle.


While my advice may be sound, best to get others to chime in on this topic too.

To clean the screen on your MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air, first shut down the computer and unplug the power adapter. Dampen a soft, lint-free cloth with water only, then use it to clean the computer's screen.
