Got some crumbs under my MacBook Air keys

I got some cracker crumbs under my new MacBook Air keys. I tried turning it upside down but that did not help. Is there a way to get them out without damaging the keys?

Vacuum it, be gentle.

What I do after things like that is shut the computer off, then get a hair dryer on full blast with "cold" air and blow it towards the trackpad and then vacuum it up gently

Use an extension with soft brushes if possible.

Hold it upside down and blow around the edges of the keys with canned air.

In the future, don't eat so many crackers!
