    I use screen cleaner to clean my keyboard. It's anti bacterial, blah blah blah screen cleaner. I buy it from mono price. It's one of the best screen cleaners I've used. I use it in my keyboard because it won't damage my keyboard and all I have to clean is oil / sweat. I don't eat near my computers so I don't have to do any deep scrubbing like most people.

    I spray the liquid on my lint free cloth and then wipe my keyboard.

    If you planning to do cleaning under your keyboard don't, the keys are not durable. They brake. I'm missing 4 keys. Assuming you have a razer laptop.
     
  4. I have Asus laptop actually ^^ so i shouldn't remove the keys because after that I'll not be able to stick them to the laptop again? :<

    You can put keys back on your laptop, although you have a pretty high risk of breaking a key. You'll might break the things inside the keys which connects to the laptop making the key work.

    I have an MSI laptop, and I can't imagine removing keys from it, but fortunately very little dust or hair gets inside the keyboard that won't come out with a little canned air and some Q-tips to wipe the "frame" in-between the keys.
    Mine has the chicklet style keys that are almost flush with the piece they're sitting in, so unlike my BWS Chroma, there's a line of plastic "casing" between every key - obviously I have no idea what that is called. lol :D
     
  7. well i usually grab a soft brush. It gets easely underneath the keys and with some good fast sweeps most of the dust and hairs will come out. :) And for the greacy keys iknow it sounds weird but I would recommend baby wipes cause they won't ruin your keys. :)
     
  8. hmmmm thank you all for the responses. I might try some of your suggestions ^^ and if I break one of the keys, well... one more reason to buy a new keyboard (Razer ofc) LOL
     
  9. Haha goodluck;)

    I usually take the keyboard off and use blower on it, if there are stuffs between the keys I use a brush to get them out. If you have a Chiclet keyboard then just use a slightly damp soft cloth and wipe.

    PC keyboard - I take it apart completely, it takes me approx 2 hours to clean it as I do it key by key with a cloth and then the rest.
    When it comes to laptop keyboards I just try to keep it clean and never really had to take it apart, I also have a small brush to get things from under keys. Quick wipe on regular basis makes it ok for me :)

    i clean both key boards with a vacuum cleaner i use the brush acces. on it and just swipe it then an air compressor afterwards on the (PC) normal keyboard and while im at it ill clean both vent shafts to on the laptop

    Edit: for sticky spots i just use a washcloth with a little bit of plain water
