Here are some general tips:
* Make sure that your speakers are turned off before cleaning.
* Be careful to protect the finish on your speakers, particularly if it's wood. Pledge and other wood cleaners that contain silicone can leave residue in the wood grain. A dry cloth will usually do for simple cleaning, although you can dampen it with water if the job calls for it.
* Spray a small amount of water on a rag and then wipe your speakers, instead of spraying water directly on the speakers.
* For speaker grilles, a can of compressed air or even the upholstery brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner will do. It's usually a good idea to remove the grilles first, if you can, so that you can easily and safely clean both sides of them.
* Every few years, you should unplug and replug the cables that connect your speaker system. This will help keep the connections clean.
* If you notice any build-up on your cables, use a good contact cleaner like DeoxIT
