easiest wash to clean your keyboard...

Recommended Posts

When that happens to the wife I usually take the whole thing apart and clean it. If its just the keys pop them off with a butter knife and clean. This turned out to be to much work for me because she was spilling wine a lot. So I buy Key boards 3 at a time from newegg and just throw the messed up one away.

leaned my keyboard vertically against a wall and allowed it to dry for 5 days

5 days? I'd rather put it in front of a fan or over the cold air return as the furnace is running now anyway. I'd say one day most with  breeze.

So soak in hot water would be my next guess. In the sink.  :wink2:

Just get a can of air and spray the shit out of it. get deep between the keys and clean with a Q Tip . For the keys that are sticking badly, shake the can and turn it upside down, that will make liquid nitrogen so be careful, than repeat the same steps.

all very good ideas...thank you...since i don't have a dishwasher...i'll use my sink sprayer...and let it dry...but lemme ask you this...do i take the screws out and take the cover off first before i spray??...or maybe i'll just go with this option...

I tell you what, send the thing here, I'll disassemble it, clean the  " love goo " out of it, and you can have it back.

cuz eww...i cant even bear the thought...what about all my paperwork... :haha:

It evaporates quickly too

I buy it at Advance Auto or NAPA.

That's good stuff. I think at one time it was called Tuner Cleaner and Contact Cleaner

Here is another way to do it.

Good deal. I am glad I watched this thread. I have to buy that stuff at a furnace supply at like over $10 a can. Now I know where else to get it on the cheap now. Thanks.  :grin2:

:lol:, I have washed several ( all low end Dells )  just swished them around in warm soapy water ,then a rinse in plain water under the tap , then left them to air dry for several days ,

all 100%  OK ,  but a high end keyboard ? no guaranty I guess using that method ,

but they take apart easy enough , I have done that and washed the keys and diaphram ,

and it worked OK , but all the keys fell out ,I had to check with another keyboard b4 putting them back ,  I jkst fope  y jot hem jn yikht ordir  :lol:
