Cleaning under the keyboard?

I have a 2007 MacBook and I've noticed how much crap I have under the keybaord. One of the keys has also become a bit weird. It feels like it won't press down properly.

Is there anything I can buy to safely clean it?

vacuum cleaner with brush head. They keys do come off, but I would not recommend it unless you are risky. I can do it with ease and do it often, but there is a softer plastic scissor mechanism that is underneath the key and can break if pulled improperly.
