I bought one of those litle vacuuming things and it gets the dust and little bits from inbetween the keys, but what about surface dirt? Do I use wipes? A wet cleaner? Suggestions, please?

Use foam cleaner, spary over the key board and wipe out with clean cloth that will remove all sticky dirt from key board.

Never spray directly on the keyboard or receive a blown-up board to replace!

I use baby wipes..they are gentle, smell nice and are not overly wet that they will destroy anything and they are always handy. I use them on the dogs too and on my hands. I also keep them in the frig. On a hot day, they are very refreshing to wipe off with.

I use a feather duster out of ASda it was under £1 then I use baby wipes I do that regularly and it is always clean and fresh , I use wet wipes on my monitor too , I just use baby wipes as the special ones are quite expensive yet the baby wipes do the same job. Happy cleaning xx

what the vacume wont get just dampen a cleaning rag and then wipe down the keyboard. you will need to squeeze out all the water that you can as you dont want it getting into the keyboard itself.

I usually just use a damp cloth, make sure its dried out a bit though because if it is too wet and water gets underneath and into the circuits it could blow some chips underneath and break the keyboard.

don't use any solutions........ open the rear side of the keyboard and disassemble and then clean with a dry brush... thats enough
