    What is a good Way to Clean My Keyboard

    I am sitting here waiting and noticed my keyboard is very dirty (8 years worth.)
    What is a good way to clean it without buying a new one?

    If it is really that old you can easily pop the keys off. I use a q-tip to run between the keys, and tooth pick for any nasties that stick. umm but if you are blonde... only do one key at a time or you'll be typing in greek! First time I did it I took em all off. Was a great puzzle game

    I clean mine every eight weeks or so. Therefore my official recommendation is, with a flamethrower.

    Or you could do this - it's how I clean mine. I pry off all keys (have to be careful with the larger ones, like spacebar, enter, backspace, capslock, etc, they're held on with metal clips usually) and wash them in the sink, then let dry for several hours before pushing them back into place. While they're drying I blow the dust out of the keyboard with compressed air. If there's any debris stuck in there I poke it with a knife until it falls out. Done!

    I could probably get qwerty and asdfghjkl; right. The rest would be mostly a guess. I would have to turn the computer off for that. Maybe a better idea to wait and just buy one when I get my new tablet.

    My mom uses a paintbrush to get the dust from under and between the keys.

    Have the spacebar and one alt key off now. Very dirty. I have another keyboard on the other computer to compare to get the keys back in place.

    They really pop off and fly don't they. This is fun. Only a few more to go and I will be on the letter keys.

    First I turn mine upside down and shake and then I take the vacumn cleaner to get most of the stuff out. Once a year I use compressed air.

    Then I take a Q-tip and stick it in alcohol (not the kind you drink) to get it wet. I then carefully clean each individual key.

    Usually do the alcohol while I'm listening to a Webinar

    Can't believe the crud that comes off it.
