Cleaning your keyboard.

To clean your keyboard, first turn off the computer and disconnect the keyboard from the back of the computer. Use a can of compressed air to blow out any of the dust or dirt between the keys of the keyboard. Lightly moisten a soft cleaning cloth with a solution of three parts water and one part liquid dishwashing detergent and carefully wipe the keys.

CAUTION: To avoid hardware damage, do not soak the cleaning cloth in the solution and do not allow the solution to drip in between the keys of the keyboard.
