You might want to check out this blog post by David Hill:  Keeping Your ThinkPad Clean.  That's about a decade old, and while not much has changed, advise-wise, there this more recent post, which contains some additional advice from Lenovo employees: What's the best screen cleaner for Lenovo LCD screens.


The information should apply to your ThinkPad P1.

Re: Cleaning Thinkpad P1

Top Cover.
I use a fresh clean dish sponge with dish soap, not too much water make sure it's a very dense foam and ,clean the top drying with a clean micro fibre. After it is dry I use a smidge of dubbin (tiny tiny little goes a long way) and apply a thin coating to the lid surface, and then gently rub it in with a micro fibre cloth until the cover has absorbed an even amount, then wipe of any excess to with a clean part of the cloth.

Hard plastic and display.

Just used distilled vinegar and distilled water solution (50-50), do not spray onto the surface spray on microfibre cloth and wipe down.
