How To: Disassemble & clean a white Apple iMac keyboard

Disassemble & clean a white Apple iMac keyboard

This video is a tutorial on how to disassemble and clean a white Apple keyboard. Most of the keys pop out easily, but the bigger ones have metal clips on the back and need to be removed very carefully. Take a picture of your keyboard to remember where each key goes, and don't lose any. Put the keys in a large Ziploc bag. Fill the bag with water and a little dishwashing soap, close it, and shake it up well. Then dump the keys out into the sink (be sure the stopper is in) and rinse the soap off. Dry them thoroughly in a towel. Take a wet cloth or paper towel and wipe down the keyboard, using a Q-Tip or toothbrush to clean the hard to reach places. Finally, replace the keys carefully back in their proper place.
