My dad finally toled me to clean the keyboard for the computer. Needles to say there was allot of dust around the keys… and in the keys. I came up with a very good idea to clean all 100 and sum keys.

First I started by popping off all the keys with a screw driver. Simple enough.

Next was taking out all the screws on the back so the top plate, that held all the keys in place, would come off.

Next, I cleaned the plate with water and some paper towels. I then began to clean the actual keys. After about the fifth key I got tired of cleaning the underneath with cu tips. So I filled the laundry tub up with water and through the all the keys in. I sat there with my hand for a wile trying to circulate them around, after about two minutes of that my arm fell asleep. So then I went into the crawly space for some idea. I came out with a pump that my parents use to pump the water in our pond out front. I through in a little orange soap then put the pump in the water, plugged it in and there we have in circulation.

I left them for about an hour or so then I grabbed a few of them out of the tub and had a look at the under side. Good as new. No gunk build up, it was like the keyboard was brand new. Next I took out the keys and let them dry. Then a reassembled the keyboard.

To sum up. The easy way, is the best way!
