How do I clean sticky keys on MacBook Pro?
I spilt pepsi on my MacBook Pro, have had it cleaned and diagnosed and everything is fine except for sticky keys. I've been told that I will need to replace the entire top shell at a huge cost. Is there anyway that i can clean it without replacing the entire top shell?
Yeah. I seemed to have found a way.. mistakingly!
A couple weeks ago I spilled some juice on my keyboard, thankfully nothing was damaged but i ended up with like 10 keys on my keyboard extremely sticky, and everyday it would just get worse... and it was just that more frustrating.
I had used baby oil to moisten my skin randomly after a friend told me it was good.. My hands were still oiley and I was just responding to facebook chat, didn't even know I had mistakenly greased up my keypad..
A couple hours later I notice that half the keys arent sticky anymore... like the backspace/enter keys etc. Obviously the other ones not so much because I barely used them! So best way is to grab a paper tower, apply baby oil and just clean your keyboard as you would if you used a cleaning agent.
works like a charm
I've just cleaned mine too!
I accidentally spilt syrup on one of my keys! ( I know, end of the world! )
Quickly wiped it up and it seemed fine, but the key started sticking more and more..
So I just clicked up the key with a little force from the bottom,
soaked a cotton bud in warm soapy water, squeezed it a bit so it was only damp,
and then wiped around under the key.
Lifted the flicky bit up and wiped around it, put the key back in place,
clicked it down, and it's absolutely perfect! Like nothing happened!
Now just need to be more careful..
Thanks for the tips!
