Then I use the crevice tool of my vacuum to suck up the dust that is left over. The key is to use the smallest, thinnest crevice tool. It's great!

I simply clean mine with a dust rag, then spray it out good with a can of compressed air. I also use the compressed air to blow out the lint and dust from all the vents to everything with my computer (monitor, tower, modem, etc). It only takes a minute to do this way.
To clean your keyboard, use Q-tips dipped in alcohol.

Whenever I need to clean my computer keyboard, I do these steps:
I've managed to save tons of $ like this; not having to purchase dust remover and not having to replace my keyboard as often by keeping it sparkling clean!

I would instead suggest simply mild soap and a few drops of water on LOTS of q-tips, to save the hassle like I received and now must live with because I am low income and cannot afford to buy another keyboard, even if used, or on sale for cheap!
Also, when using the Q-tips, don't use any "off brands" because the cotton won't hold up to the cleaning well, and the underlying plastic sticks beneath the looser cotton and can scratch the keys!
God bless and help you in your decision. : ) (04/22/2010)
I go one step further when I clean my keyboard. With a butter knife, I gently pry the keys off, arranging them on a tray in the order they are removed. I use Q-tips dipped in alcohol to clean the entire surface. I then replace the keys by pushing them gently into their proper place. It's amazing what is found under the keys. Everyone is wished a rainbow-filled day! (04/22/2010)
