    Proper Maple care?

    Complete Maple n00b here. I've borrowed an MIM Strat off a friend on permanent loan until I can get my own strat, since he never plays it, and I have back problems (hence needing a lighter guitar than the Xiphos). I've said that while I've got it, I'll obviously take care of it, restring, set-up, cleaning and wtf not, but I've never actually owned a maple boarded guitar before.

    My question is, how do I actually clean it? I know not to lemon oil, but that's about it
