Best Answer

Plastic Bowl
Old toothbrush
Rubbing Alcohol
Cloth

First make sure that you unplug your typewriter. Pour some rubbing alcohol in a plastic bowl, and wet the bristles with rubbing alcohol. Gently scrub the keys to remove excess ink. Wipe off keys with the cloth. Keep on doing this to clean the keys. I believe that's what your problem is.
