How to clean keycaps? Check out the following tips and tricks!

How to clean keycaps is a question that has been asked more than a few dozen times in the forum posting that I do on auto customization sites. The reason why this is so is because, like with everything else, people have different opinions about what keycaps you should clean and should not. In the past I have tried to answer the question of how to clean keycaps (specifically the problem of the bleeding keys) in a very straight forward way. The way that I cleaned them was usually with alcohol and a Q-tip; however, after some time I decided that I should probably look into some other options for keeping my keycaps clean. Luckily, the custom keycaps I used were fairly cheap and easy to replace (just a plain pair of pliers can do the trick).

One of the main problems with keeping your keycaps clean is that they get dusty over time. You may have to clean them every once in a while to keep them from looking so “busy”. A simple solution is to take a q-tip or an old toothbrush and dip it in alcohol; then use that same Q-tip to gently clean off all the dirt. Make sure that you only do this to the surface of the keycaps, as otherwise you will cause a lot of problems. It is extremely important to keep the surface clean, as it will allow you to see the keycap values as you type, making it far easier to control keypad accuracy.

When searching around for information on how to clean keycaps, you will notice that there are a lot of different techniques. Here are a couple of them: To remove stubborn dirt, you can try running hot water and a cleaner through the keypad, making sure to mix the solution with the cap before you run the water through it. If you do this properly, you will find that your keypad will come out almost completely clean. However, this solution takes quite some time to work and is rather inconvenient if you need to type quickly.

If you don’t want to wait for a long time (or a large amount of money), you can also opt to purchase a keycap remover. This works in a similar way to the alcohol-based solution – you just have to dip a Q-tip into the cleaning agent, and run it over the keycaps until they become almost completely clean. Keep in mind, however, that this remover leaves a strange residue on the keycaps – you will not be able to tell when you remove them next, and it is therefore important to always be careful when removing them. If you use this technique often, you will gradually get used to it and start noticing less smudges on your keycaps.
