Christian Sandoval: I have these tiny little droplets on the top of my key caps and they won't wipe off. Does anyone know how to clean them?

Aaron Cohen: I love your video to clean the Mac Pro keyboard. Thanks for making it! I was going to try dissembling all the interior boards but then I found your video and was amazed that the keys can be piped off and reinstalled. Its much simpler and definitely less time consuming then disassembling the PC Boards especially since I have about 10 keys sticking. I really like the time you took to really explain and show very clearly how you removed the keys, disassembled the underlying mechanism, showed what the mechanism looked like, and how to reassemble them. I especially liked that you showed a variety of keys and the tricks to the various keys. And I will be attempting your fix on my keyboard because I have some keys a little sponge to other that are completely sticking that don't always work or get stuck adding extra characters.  

I spilled a Hurricane drink (with rum) on the right part of my keyboard and have some function keys F9-F11 and a few keys on each row under there all the way down to the bottom of the keyboard as well as the right command key sticking so Im really glad you showed that one. I will try to fix my keyboard in a few days starting at the top and working my way down so I will have some experience when I get to the arrow keys.

The keys that you didn't demonstrate were the arrow keys. My up and down arrow keys are sticking really bad and the left and right arrows are very spongy I am hoping they are similar to the function keys. Maybe you can comment on those keys so that I might have a reply before I get to them.

Darkening Hosts: Does this work for Macbook Air?  i.e are the keys similar?

Erik Hagelin: Saved my day! Thanks alot!


mortigisto: Tried to get a key off and broke one of the lower clips :(

Chanda Rhoades: Thank The Good Lord For your tutorial.. although my keys are sideways and there are differences in my macbook such as no slits and all. I was able to modify what you did..Whew!! .. My cat walked up and began to knead her paws on my keyboard.. I actually saw her pull it up.. and it wouldn't go back down.. I am happy to report that your video was most helpful so THANK YOU!!

Chris Domingo: Fixed thank you

Taylor Sharpe: You da man. Just cleaned out my "C" key. Works perfectly. Toothpick was a great tool, provided no wood breaks off and gets in there in the process. Thanks, bud.

Robert Dragomir: omg he broke his nail :((( 1:17

alibaroomand: You are master of camera jogging! I like your video.

Dan Knight: Excellent video! I really love the fact that you spent a lot of time, and patiently explained every detail.

I've been cleaning not only spill, but also a ton of dog hair out of the keys for someone. Tedious.

Kelly Gomez: Ok so I spilled an energy drink on my keyboard and the comma and period keys didn't work
I removed and cleaned them and it's not sticky but it still doesn't work
What should I do??
