Here is a nice little utility that may come in handy. It allows you to clean your keyboard without making your Mac go crazy. You won’t use this app every day, but it’s so small you can keep it for a grimey day.
When you start “Keyboard Cleaner”, you screen is blacked out. The only keys that have any ability are “Command” and “Q” and only when pushed at the same time. So, once started, you can wipe down your keyboard.
Expectedly, the developer gets the response “Why don’t you just unplug your keyboard”, but for those of you who are laptop owners…that’s a little hard to do.
