Mine are becoming dirty and greasy. Do you suggest damp towel and just run over the keyboard?
I clean it with a glasses cleaning fiber + a cleaning spray for glasses
I take care that I don't put drops on the screen though.
distilled deionized water with a lint free cloth
90% ethanol and cotton-balls.
Can't be too careful when a computer is used on a bio-lab where I daily produces and examines vast amounts of different bacterias.
It still haven't made my keyboard look like it's wore out!
It's amazing how much the silver keyboards in old MBP can take and still look and feel like new!
If you have an older keyboard with thick keys, then pry off every key with a screwdriver. Then wash the keys in a soapy tupperware. Wipe down the keyless keyboard with a soft cloth that's damp. Then put the keys back on after they dry. It should give you a good two years of clean keyboard.
However, if you have a laptop or one of the newer iMac or Mac Pro keyboards then it is much easier. You should just wipe it with a soft damp cloth and you're good!
So Putting it in my dishwasher, probably not such a good idea ???
I just run over it with a micro fibre or damp cloth. If there are bits in between the keys, run a Q Tip in between the keys.
Just wipe it with alcohol (evaporates, unlike water)
