alicewong I found it in the internet. Its really useful!
Your keyboard is one of your most important peripherals, but itís bound to get clogged with dirt and grime over time. Dust off, scrub down, and clean up your number one input device safely with these tips.

There are plenty of ways to clean depending on what afflicts your workspace. Weíll break it down by type, but first thingís first: unplug your keyboard! Some of these cleaning methods can theoretically do some damage to your keyboard if thereís power going to it, so be sure itís unplugged and the batteries are taken out.

alicenikolic 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.

katty 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.

EmmaECO 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!

michaelvaugan 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.
