  1. I heard that removing keys from blackwidow CHROMA can damage the keyboard. Hair and other string type trash are getting stucked inside. Compressed Air is not even the solution for it. help?

    You can safely remove the keycaps using a keycap puller such as the one included in this.

    Here's a great YouTube vid.

    MOST mechanical keyboards can be cleaned by removing the keys and wiping them down with a damp microfiber cloth. A couple good 02 can sprays usually clears mine out.

    I will make a video for this someday, but for now:
    1. Remove keycaps.
    2. Bathe caps in cleaning solution.
    3. Use brush to remove debris from the keyboard.
    4. Use wipes or lens/display cleaner for the bordering areas and underside of the keyboard.
    5. Use a wet towel to remove dust from the braided cable.
    6. Used forced air to finish off cleaning the keyboard body.
    7. Replace caps when dry.
     
  5. Might be a late post but
    • Disconnect your keyboard.
    • Set it on a flat surface.
    • Carefully remove each key (a keyboard tool will be useful).
    • Turn the keyboard upside down so that any loose dirt falls out.
    • Use light bursts of compressed air to get rid of the dirt that didn't fall out from the previous step.
    • Use a brush to help along anything that survived the previous step.
    • Use tweezers to pull out any dirt that has stuck and survived the previous steps.
    • Re-insert keys.
    This is my process for cleaning my Blackwidow, and it shouldn't be very different from the Chroma edition.
