    I used to have that exact Dell keyboard. I remember doing the same thing. I used the end of a nail clipper to remove the keys.

    I use bic pen and just go at it. Laptop keyboards are more picky, but usually you can pull apart a desktop keyboard without issues. The only keys that should have wires and extra brackets are the larger keys (like space/shift/enter).

    Then you can just put the keyboard in the dishwasher with the keys in the silverware basket and run it. Let it thourougly dry and it will still work.

    The keys might be weird afterwards though without some sort of lubricant. I haven't found the best option, but some sort of grease on a Q-tip and hit every key hole and it will be good as new.

    Got up early and sober this morning. Had two slices of toast with butter. Checking up on my work laptop with a cup of tea and Billie Holiday's God Bless the Child in the background. Going to a friend's new house so I thought I'd wear a tie for the occasion.

    I have a month off for vacation now! Everyone in my orchestra gets off this month, paid. Starts back... March 5.

    Had a summer series in Frutillar in Southern Chile. So beautiful and a really nice concert hall.

    Off to Miami tomorrow for a week, then back to Chile and a trip to La Serena, a nice costal city.

    Bad idea. Its not worth risking getting electronics wet. As per my internet research, best bet is remove the keys, throw them into a bowl with warm water and dishwashing liquid, let them sit in there for a while. Whilst the keys are being cleaned, you use a vacuum cleaner to suck up the larger chunks of filth and then use paper towels, q-tips and rubbing alcohol and / or dishwashing liquid + water to clean the keyboard. Sure, it takes longer than just putting it in the dishwasher, however there is no risk of permanently ruining your keyboard.
