You shouldn't use household cleaners on unsealed wood like rosewood and ebony. it will seep into the pores and cause damage over time. That stuff is meant to polish sealed furniture and stuff.

I use Gibson Luthier fretboard conditioner and I love it. I've tried the Dunlop stuff and I don't like it.

I've got some red Planet Waves spray, but I didn't like it too much. I use Dunlop Lemon Oil as well, and it's awesome. Though every fretboard cleaner I've seen says not to use on maple boards. What the hell do you clean a maple board with?

A clean rag and some elbow grease.

I use Kyser Classics, Dr. Stringfellow lem-oil on my Ebony and Rosewood boards. I use it once a year and that's all they need. Damn good stuff IMO.

Gogomyte. It does an incredible job of cleaning the frets, which makes it worth the price IMHO.

Been using this for 15 years with no issues. It's cheap and easily available and doesn't get marked up ridiculously like "specialty guitar fret board oil"

Just make sure it's the kind that doesn't have wax or silicone and your good to go.

I've heard some people say the Dunlop 65 Lemon oil is bad for the fretboard and drys it out. Is there any truth in that?

Lizard Spit fretboard conditioner:

Their guitar polish also works great.

FatalGear41 knows the ways of the obscure. I hear it's just not with Gibsons. Beware, Halloween approaches...

I was going to post the same exact thing. Either this or Orange Glo, well, because I like the smell of oranges. Works just as good as the Old English.
