How Can I Clean My Mac Computer’s Keyboard?

For a proper Mac keyboard cleaning, a can of compressed air, a vacuum with a soft-bristled attachment and some lean lint-free clothes are required. These are the instructions to adhere to:

  1.  Turn off your Mac and get rid of any cables or hardware linked to the system.
  2. Ensure the keyboard is held upright at a 75 angle (the keys should be slightly staring at the roof, not the ground), with the lengthy axis of the device parallel to the floor.
  3. Then spray the compressed air along the keys. Ensure the can is held upright because it will release cold fluid if held otherwise and make sure the nozzle is kept about 1 inch from the keys. Spray from right-to-left or left-to-right, going from upper rows to the ones beneath them.
  4. After that, ensure the computer screen is turned vertical or see to it that the keyboard is kept at a 75 angle, then spray from up to down (the Escape, Caps Lock, and Function keys down to the arrow and Enter key) with the same method.
  5. When that is done, place the system or keyboard on a neat, flat surface, and gently run the vacuum over the keys with the soft-bristled attachment. Adhere to the right-to-left, left-to-right or top-to-bottom pattern and you will be fine.
  6. After that, gently dip a portion of the cloth with water, then carefully pass it over a part of the keyboard in slow, one-direction motion. Ensure various clothes or several portions of the same bigger cloth is used to clean the keyboard to make sure the dirt, dust, and grease are totally gone, and not just moved about.

Then give your system some minutes to completely dry after cleaning it before you turn it on.
