Will the Genius Bar clean my PowerBook keyboard for me?

So, a couple weeks ago, I was biting my nails with the PB on my lap (yeah, I know...), and one fell underneath the Enter key on the right side. Now, I'm very OCD about all things relating to the PB, which is why that kinda pissed me off. I couldn't stop thinking about it, so I went and bought some compressed air.

This was my first time using compressed air, and it didn't really help with the fingernail (if anything, it pushed it farther down and closer to the mini fan vents right by the keys). It did, however, bring a LOT of other crap up to the surface, and now I'm determined to get this sucker cleaned.

So, my question: will the Genius Bar clean my keyboard for me? I'm more than willing to pay whatever they see fit at this point if they have a set price.

You should be able to do this yourself. Check this out:

This may not be your exact model, and you did not say which one you own. But, a quick Internet search should give you the exact instructions you need.
