When restringing, what should you use to clean a maple fretboard?

I know lemon oil is for rosewood but it says you shouldn't use it on maple so what should you use instead?

Errrr, a cloth? I somtimes use fast fret but that's only when the strings are on the guitar.

maple is finished. the same way that the painted surfaces are finished.

so oil would just smear and stain.

for maple, you can use a damp cloth to get rid of dirt.
and you can use polish to finish it if so desired.

I use Murphy's Oil Soap, its a hard wood floor cleaner, just mix some up using the directions on the jug.

rosewood is porous, which is why lemon oil is used (to stop it from drying out too much).

maple is finished, so the dirt usually just wipes off with a dry/wet cloth.

+1 fast fret is great for the strings and keeps the board looking great aswell.
