I was wondering what is the best way to clean my keyboard?

I was thinking of rubbing alcohol but not sure so I decided to ask here..

My keys feel slippery...What do you use or do to keep your keys in tip top shape..

Many Thanks,

I use alcohol. I also will use 409 on a rag. Never had any problems.

thanks......I was about to put on a pair of gloves as they are getting pretty slippery...but on the real side..I do keep them clean usually..

I read that article and one thing I've always done was use the vacuum cleaner but some good suggestions..I also get my q tips..(cottom swabs)...and usually use a mild dish washing like they suggested..

So thanks for the information ..I wanted to get your expert suggestions..

Thanks everyone for your suggestions and links...I do most of what you suggested quite often and use my vacuum to clean out the stuff in between the keys but haven't tried to can of spay yet. I guess I do it so often I don't think that much stuff can accumulate...

I've noticed my keys have a texture on them...The ones I don't use that often still do..(sort of like feeling tiny little sand paper on the keys) The ones that feel slippery this texture has worn off...I guess I was so aware of feeling the texture it's hard to get used to not having it there now...So they feel slippery to me but nice and clean...

I type a lot so it makes sense that the ones I use most often are the ones worn...I vacuum quite a bit so I'm always cleaning the board as well...

Hummm...If I could find some paint with the same texture as the manufacture used...I would have a brand new feeling keyboard...

Strange the little things that bug me...

Thanks everyone,

Sliding down the page...
