Ask Max: The best way to clean a keyboard is...

Asked on 10/09/2006:

Good Morning,What is the best way to clean a keyboard? I have one that came with a G5 1.8 single processor and another that came with a 17" swivel screen iMac. I've tried canned air and have popped off a couple of keys but neither method works well.


I am not a big fan of the white keyboards or the clear plastic cases Apple has chosen to use for this very reason. Keyboards are hard to clean and even harder when they show every hair and crumb. PowerMax uses a 150 lb. air compressor to clean our equipment. It works better than canned air, although it's still difficult. Find a friend with pneumatic tools or a nail gun and use their compressor to blow out the particles inside the keyboard. Hold the nozzle at a 45-degree angle and work the air blasts along the space in between the keys. To whiten the keys, use Formula 409 and a rough cotton rag.That has had the best results for me, I hope it works as well for you.
