How to clean the greasy keyboard? Whether notebooks, desktops or mechanical keyboards, the surface of the keyboard is easy to show greasy effect after using it for a period of time, and some even erase the letters on the keyboard, affecting the typing experience.

For mechanical keyboards, the solution to serious greasy keycaps is naturally to replace keycaps. Because the mechanical keyboard is designed with a separate mechanical shaft, it will be more convenient to clean the keyboard, and many keyboards themselves are equipped with key pullers and extra keycaps.


In addition to replacing the key cap, during the cleaning process of the mechanical keyboard itself, it is also recommended that the entire keyboard be taken apart and cleaned under the premise of protecting the shaft body, and the removed key cap can be rinsed directly in clean water with detergent.

After cleaning, you must wait for the keycap to dry and then put it back, and for the dust, dirty stains and other elements on the main body of the keyboard, you can wipe it with a towel dipped in 99% alcohol, and you should also pay attention to drying.

Friends with conditions are advised to buy better keyboards as far as possible to avoid this greasy problem. In addition, film coating is also a more practical and hygienic method.
