Lemon oil is the way to go. Any hardware store will have it. It's inexpensive.

Gear:
Partscaster/Tele into a bunch of pedals, a Maz 18 head, and a Z Best cab.

any guitar shop worth it's salt should stock some fretboard cleaner.

If not, lemon oil works a treat.

EDIT - beaten to the lemon oil recommendation

Lemon oil is household stuff, lol. I really wouldn't use anything else.

So wait. It's like 4 bucks at hardware store. Probably any hardware store.

Not supposed to what?

Be careful about lemon oils that aren't made specifically for guitars; some have petroleum based additives and whatnot for wood furniture that clogs the wood's pores and can impact tone.

I'd recommend Dunlop Formula 65. I'm holding a bottle now and the pricetag is only $5.91.

so long as you buy a lemon oil fretboard cleaner made for guitars it really doesn't matter whether you have a rosewood, maple or mudkip neck.

Do be sure not to use the lemon oil on your fretboard too often. A good rule of thumb is no more than twice a year.

And I wouldn't think using lemon oil on a maple fretboard would do anything. Maple boards are usually lacquered. The reason you put lemon oil on a rosewood or ebony fretboard is because it is raw and unfinished. Granted, I have never tried putting lemon oil on anything other than rosewood and ebony.
