Cleaning your keyboard

I've always a problem cleaning keyboards, where i have a bad habit of munching something before my screen while i work. So the apparent consequence is that the bits of hair, chips, dusts and so on often accumulates in my keyboard.

I'd like to collect some suggestions of how you guys manage this. I've heard about brushes, but they ain't useful within the small holes. I had also tried to look for small air brush, vacuum, etc but often in vain or nothing in a good price.

So, any suggestions here?

This is how i clean.

Step 1. : Turn keyboard upside down, shake violently and hit it for 20 seconds
Step 2 : Vacuum using a normal household vacuum.
Step 3 : Spray cleaning fluid and wipe clean keyboard.

Get's good results this way.
no need for those 'specialised' small air brush / vacuum etc. just need a powerful vacuum.

hope it helps!

Okay. Trust me, i really tried and stopped after step 1. I shook violently and one of the keys came out. Alright you saved me anyway, time to condemn the keyboard and buy a new one.

Follow the instructions, and the keys will really came off easily, making your job of cleaning the keyboard easy.

I am not sure about the keyboard for laptops.. I dont own one. Sorry.

Thank you...... I do that also usually but I have heard running the tray thru water (Or even a dishwasher) would work well also..... (Not for a laptop keyboard of course)


Just make sure to let things DRY COMPLETLY before applying power!
