    USB white keyboards - soaking cleaning?

    In the old days you could submerse a keyboard in water to soak out any sticky stuff. Surprisingly enough this would often work, given a proper drying out time.

    I have a clear plastic and white key Apple USB keyboard that I'd think needs a good soaking. Do these keyboards hold up to this counter intuitive cleaning?

    Possibly. However, before trying the soaking\drying method make sure you have a spare keyboard on hand - just in case!

    I'm not sure about the new ones, but in the net cafe I worked in we had the old coloured ones that matched the imacs, and they got soaked in coffee daily and still battled on... god I miss those things.
