It should be power off when you are going to clean your keyboard. Then keep a canister of Clorox or Lysol disinfectant wipes handy.If you have a USB vacuum cleaner, go town. Canít find that canister of compressed air in your supply closet? Scotch tape will work to pick up crumbs in between your keys. Heck, even the sticky end of a post it note will do the trick. Apart from it you can use your hairdryer the same way you would use a can of compressed air.

Qtips are also known as Cotton swabs (American English) or cotton buds (British English) or ear buds (Australian and South-African English) consist of a small wad of cotton wrapped around one or both ends of a short rod, usually made of either wood, rolled paper, or plastic. They are commonly used in a variety of applications including first aid, cosmetics application, cleaning, and arts and crafts. The cotton swab was invented in the 1920s by Leo Gerstenzang[1] after he attached wads of cotton to toothpicks.

I have several janitorial accounts where I clean keyboards. I use a backpack vacuum with a brush attachment. I just vacuum out everything - takes only a few seconds per keyboard.

Well, To clean the keyboard firstly you must unplug it. You can also use the keyboard cleaning solution for cleaning which is usually alcohol based cleaner and also good for your keyboard. With this solution use cotton swabs for applying the solutions on the keys.

Before you do any cleaning strategy please switch off your system then began your cleaning work. First of all turn the keyboard upside down and shake it gently please note that never to pour liquid directly onto the keyboard.

If you are talking about a computer keyboard and not the musical instrument,I always find this works,

  • Place 2-3 pieces of kitchen roll on the desk
  • Unplug the keyboard from the usb port in the back of the PC
  • Tilt the keyboard upside down (over the kitchen roll)
  • Tap the back of the keyboard lightly
This should make all of the muck that has gathered up over time come out onto the kitchen roll.



Therefore doesnt create aditional mess!

A simple brush or smooth cotton cloth is appropriate for cleaning keyboard but one should use a key guard to avoid settling of dust and staining of keys.

Keyboards can become dirty after periods of extended use. To clean this mess, you can even Use your hairdryer the same way you would use a can of compressed air. You can clean the sides of the keys with a cotton swab dipped in isopropyl alcohol.
