Upside down and shake, followed by vacuuming between the keys with a cordless vacuum cleaner.

I am planning on buying a small compact vacuum cleaner for my keyboard since rigorous shaking only kills 99.9% of the germs.

I think soap is not a good choice.you should select some professional washing products that use to wash computer.Maybe it is greater than soap.

I use a air blower to clean all PC components. This actually is a very easy and good way to have your all PC cleaned up without disassembling anything.

I always think I have to clean my keyboard at the wrong time - usually when I am in the middle of something urgent. I would look down at the keyboard and think "Eeeeeeek that thing needs a clean!", then I get busy again! One day it will get the cleaning it deserves, but I certainly won't be popping off the keys - that is going way toooo far!

That's what my brother did when he cleaned our keyboard. The problem thereafter, he was not able to return the keys again and the keyboard didn't work at all!

When I clean my keyboard I just wipe it with a tissue and alcohol or a piece of wet cloth.

OK, I now have felt guilty enough to clean my dirty keyboard. I used a soft damp cloth with a bit of liquid soap and it cleaned up well. Havn't done the upside down shaking yet - at the moment I am thinking that if something in in there, I don't want to know about it!

Yeah thats' much much easier but sometimes I do get attached to things. One of them is my keyboard. It's very special to me. I am sure some people feel the same, too.

I usually first use a regular vacuum cleaner then wipe it with surgical alcohol. I think there’s a soft transparent rubber-like film you can buy to cover the keys, that doesn’t need to be removed when you want to use the keyboard. This keeps dust from accumulating in the first place.

Some years ago, I saw a demonstration where a television set was turned on and immersed in what appeared to be water but wasn’t. It kept showing the picture because the liquid was actually a very poor conductor of electricity. The guy actually placed his bare hand in the liquid while the TV was on and he didn’t get shocked! Such a liquid would be ideal to clean not only the keyboard but all of the components of the computer and other electronic devices. The thing is, I don’t know if that liquid ever made it into commercial production.

There is a spray I've used made for cleaning keyboards. Computer stores should carry it. Shake out, vacuum, spray and wipe.
