Default Keyboard mantaince

I thought I would make a thread on cleaning your keyboard, because nobody wants sticky key when playing a game or making a post at this forum right?


This is my dad’s old keyboard. Absolutely full of crap, staples and food mostly. This is a keyboard that was used by 4 different ppl on a regular basis for only about 2 years. So if you have several ppl using your keyboard regularly than i would recommend cleaning it once a year.
What I will do is with all of the keys removed, used canned air to blow the crap out then clean it with a mild cleaner making sure to keep it out of the inside. After that I will run the keys through the dish washer. Then I will replace the keys using another keyboard as a guide. If you don’t have another keyboard to use just take a picture before you remove the keys and use that.
But b/c I am lazy here is a link to cover what I missed.

umm. When I eat the food goes into my mouth, not onto the keyboard..

I don't think that anything will clean up that keyboard so that it will look as if it was new. I just usually use some wet paper or something like it and wipe the keys clean. If I need to clean under the keys then I just take a pencil and force the keys off. Sometimes they can fly like 2 meters in some direction so it becomes hard to find all of them. But usually they just fly like 5-15 cm so u can find them easily.
