How do you all clean your keyboards ?

Aside from the Dishwasher method. I'm at my work keyboard 8 hours a day.
I periodically flip it upside down and tap out the accumulated crumbs and hair and skin cells and whatnot. And then go after it with alcohol wipes every month or so when it gets sticky from desk lunches because of a deadline.

Any better solutions ?

flips are good - a sight to see
multitasking while flipping can't be very safe



* usually wipes

I occasionally flush mine out with coffee or beer (depends on what I have in the cup/glass sitting next to the keyboard that day.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

My wireless keyboard at home gets a little dusty, but I don't usually eat or drink near it, so it just needs a good dusting every now and then.

My dell keyboard at work gets pretty gross. I shake it out every so often for crumbs, and wipe it when it's really bad. Every year or so, I ask for a replacement.

I clean my extended USB keyboard with window clearer - spray onto a towel and wipe.

Tap it a couple of times on one or two edges, and then compressed gas.

Flip keyboard upside down, wipe with damp washcloth until it comes clean.

Great. For those without self-cleaning keyboards, you can put it in the oven during self-cleaning cycle. You won't recognize it when if it comes out.

Exactly.

In full disclosure, mine at work is terrifying to look at.
