    So far just dry. I suppose if I had to I could use water and a mild detergent.

    I let my wife clean mine. Don't know how she does it but it is getting cleaned, that is all that matters. Don't need to clean that often however.

    for the type cover, I use the alcohol wipes to prevent finger oils from corroding the finish of the keys (the shiny spots if you leave the oil sit for long periods).

    for the screen, i use a microfiber cloth

    Do you have a brand of alcohol wipes you would recommend?

    I don't know about a "brand" to recommend. Just some isopropyl alcohol. Don't get the harsh ethyl alcohol.

    Plenty of options at plenty of places. I get a bunch of them for free through work (I'm in the health field). They're tiny square wipes meant for cleaning before venipuncture or finger pricks.

    Don't you guys find that the Type Cover fabric starts to change colour easily? Both my SP4 and my S3 have the same dark blue Type Covers but they get lighter over time where my palms usually rest... can't figure out how to clean it as water doesn't work and neither did my laptop cleaner.

    It's bad form to rest your arms on the table (or in this case, the Type cover) while typing. Didn't your typing instructor teach you that?

    I can't imagine oils causing the material to get lighter. I can imagine it getting darker. That's weird.

    It's light a slight faint whitening... not sure what. And my typing instructor never said I couldn't rest arms on table (and I owe my 150WPM speeds to him teaching me when I was 9/10) but my piano teacher didn't let me slouch my arms on the piano edge.
