    Today I picked up an Apple Wireless Keyboard model A1016 at a church rummage sale for $2. Despite having horribly corroded batteries in it, after cleaning the corrosion, it works just fine. However, it is filthy. I can see dirt and grim in the clear sides. How do I take apart this keyboard to clean it?

    Just pop out the keys, put them in a bag and rinse them with water. Brush the grime under the keys away. If you want to remove the acrylic, there are some hex screws at the bottom.

    Most importantly: Let the keys dry completely. After that, let keys dry completely again. One drop of water and you used to have a working keyboard.
