I've never used anything. Just a dry cloth to clean it off when changing strings. I was under the impression that you're not supposed to use anything on you fretboard...

If its rosewood, lemon oil once every few months.. if its maple, just a damp cloth... as its varnished lemon oil wont penetrate it..!

Lemon oil or if I have some, olive oil. Be careful with the olive oil, don't put too much. And only for rosewood/ebony/other non finished woods.

I also smooth it out with first 600 grit sandpaper, then 0000 steelwool. The steelwool also polises the frets.

^ you have to be VERY gentle with steel wool on frets, or they'll be gone before you can say Jack Robinson.

I use lemon oil once every 6 weeks or so, I also use fast fret and wipe beneath the strings after playing.

0000 is fine enough to just polish I find. I haven't tried it on softer metal frets though and definitely wouldn't... But on most guitars it'll be fine. It also works on the fingerboard to remove the marks left by the sandpaper (if you use it) so it's all win.

Lemon oil on my Rosewood/Ebony fingerboards, damp cloth on my Stratocaster.

I'm neglectful. I only use warm water on the fretboard when changing strings, which is almost never.

That and used tampons.
