Mix up a 50/50 mix of 70-80% isopropyl alcohol and distilled water and get yourself a microfiber cloth at the the store. Put the alcohol water mix in a squirt bottle. Should last for years and total cost is less than $10.

Personally, I wouldn't spray any liquids on a laptop. I use these eye glass cleaners you can buy at most stores. They have alcohol in them and work pretty well for cleaning just about anything. For keeping the keyboard and fans clean, some compressed air will do the trick.
