Dirt stuck under space bar

Hi everyone,

it seems some breadcrumb or so is stuck under the spacebar so I really need to hammer it for every space. Awful.

Already tried lifting the spacebar gently and carefully with a spudger. Unfortunately the spacebar barely lifts up. Also tried blowing air underneath it - no success.

Any ideas? :)

Update (07/09/2017)

I tried a very thin painting brush, which worked perfectly. Didn't even need to dislodge the key.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Have you tried a dental pick? I have found that it is thin enough to get in there and dislodge keys.

I didn't know that you even can dislodge keys. I thought they would break if I try to lift them off. I'll check if there's a guide for that somewhere, thanks! :)
