3. Use compressed air Using compressed air, blow out any remaining debris from between the keys. Hold the canister upright and spray in short bursts to avoid causing any damage to the keyboard.

4. Use a soft-bristled brush Use a soft-bristled brush to gently sweep away any remaining debris that the compressed air didn’t remove. Be careful not to apply too much pressure, as this can damage the keys.

5. Clean the keys Dampen a microfiber cloth with a small amount of rubbing alcohol and gently wipe down each key. Make sure to avoid getting any liquid inside the keyboard.

By following these simple tips, you can keep your keyboard clean and functioning properly.
