Thread: Physically cleaning my laptop

  1. #1
    Hi

    I want to clean the crap from under my keyboard, but cant get to it. I dont want to remove the letters as i saw someone having difficulity putting them back on.

    I smoke and eat over my laptop, and its full of crap, any suggestions (other than dont smoke/eat) to get under the keys?

    thanks!

    A vacuum cleaner's soft brush attachment , maybe look at getting a clear cover like for desktop keyboards .


    I was going to say turn upside and gently tap it , till I realized it was a laptop . You'd be amazed at the crap I get in my keyboard .

    Turning it upside down and using the brush and compressed air should work.

    It is a wonder it is not tea leaves. Living in a cup as you do.
