The ones you use on baby's hineys work well.

I cleaned mine a couple months ago - popped off the keys and went to town with canned air and some wet q-tips. That worked great. Every now and then i'll spray some air on it or turn it upside down and shake :)

I never tried popping off the keys. Is it easy to do? I'm always afraid I'll apply too much pressure and break the latch on the bottom of the key!

Not only is popping off the keys a great way to get the jelly sandwich out from underneath them, but then putting the keys back on the board in alphabetical order makes a good April 1 gag!

For cleaning - honestly, I usually use spit - just because it's there and handy when a spot on a key catches my eye. :)

I take off all the keys.. i know where they all go, if you don't as you take them off, lay them out. The clean keyboard and put back keys one by one, cleaning them each before they go in.

They clip off very easily and usually go back without a hitch (usually, because the bigger keys have metal brackets which need slight alignment).

I use eyeglass cleaner and an eyeglass cleaning cloth or a soft chamois. It works expecially well on cleaning and polishing the plastic on the iBooks and PM's. It also is an excellent polish for the mirrored drive doors. :D
