Cleaning my AV receiver

Sorry if this has been beaten to death on here but I searched unsuccessfully.

I have a Yamaha AV receiver and I have a bit of finger prints/oils on the front aluminum panel around the knobs/buttons.

What can I use to eliminate the oil/prints W/O removing the silk screened lettering on the front??? A clean dry microfiber cloth doesn't seem to do much removing, more spreading it around.

Any suggestions welcome! I tried Crutchfield but all they could give me was suggestions for screen cleaners!!

Use some soap and water - some liquid soap (dish soap is fine), and a cloth. You don't need a ton of water - moisten the cloth, not dripping wet. Wring it out before you wipe. Not a lot of soap, either.

Then wipe. You shouldn't need too much pressure to clean. The silkscreen lettering requires a bit of force to remove, so as long as you're not trying to rub it out, it should withstand the wipe down just fine.

You just need light pressure - basically just enough to move the cloth around without it slipping away.
