How to Clean an Acer Laptop Keyboard

Acer laptop keyboards, just like any keyboard, get grimy even under usual circumstances. Oil from your fingertips and dust from the air settle on and between the keys. In addition to these natural, unavoidable ways that keyboards get dirty, many of us eat or drink while using the computer. Particles of food or even a bit of liquid sometimes falls onto, or between, the keyboard keys. And, if you are a pet owner, you will probably accumulate a bit of fur there too. Luckily, cleaning laptop keyboards is not difficult--as long as it is done frequently and grime is not allowed to build up.

Step

Turn off the laptop. If it is plugged into an electrical outlet, unplug it.

Step

Take a dry, lint-free cloth and dust off the solid surfaces around the keys. Next, tilt the laptop just slightly on its side and spray compressed air between the keys.

Step

Tilt the keyboard slightly on its other side and spray compressed air again. Keep doing this until you’ve gotten as many of the dirt particles out as you can find.

Step

Moisten a cloth slightly with water. Wipe it gently over the keys and the areas surrounding the keys.

Step

Dip a cotton swab in rubbing alcohol. Use this to clean between the keys as well as on top of particularly soiled keys.
