Nail Polish Remover to Clean Keyboard

Dip an old toothbrush in nail polish remover and scrub debris from your keyboard. Make sure to shake out the excess nail polish remover before scrubbing the keyboard.

You may run into problems with the letters badly fading on your keyboard if you use nail polish remover.

Even non-acetone polish remover is pretty harsh and could possibly damage the plastic on some keyboards. And keep in mind this is an electronic piece of equipment so be sure to unplug the keyboard from the computer before using any choice of cleaning fluid, including soap and water, to avoid possible damage to the electronic components!

Also, you can gently pop off the keys (the space key won't come off many keyboards) with a butter knife. Keep the keys lined up in the same order as they are on the keyboard. In doing this you can clean under all of the keys on the board and wipe each key off with a slightly damp rag before replacing them in the space where they belong.

I think rubbing alcohol would be a better choice.

Absolutely do not use nail polish to clean your keyboard! I have to ask. How did that work for you? Can you still see your keys? Alcohol is the better choice. Unplug all power first!
