On my Mac-128 I had great success using a giant tub and about 20% peroxide diluted to about 2%.  Add some oxy clean and agitate.  Left it overnight and no streaks and came out great.  

Only downside is the cost of peroxide to fill up a tub that can fit the Mac 128k case parts, mouse case and keyboard case.   

I did remove all the decals and logos beforehand that were not peroxide safe.  

For the keys,  had them sit in 70% ISP for an hour to loosen up the dirt and then clean with an old toothbrush.   Finally removed any yellow by immersion in 3% peroxide for an hour. 

The space bar needed perioxide 40 cream developer till it matched the rest of the keys, Mac space bars are known to go yellow.
