    I do it every 15 days. I always remove the key caps, clean them separately and put them back in.



    This is a useful tool, it's called "key puller".It only costs a dollar.

    It depends on whether or not it's campaign season, man.

    If it is indeed campaign season, and if I am actively campaigning, say, across multiple fronts.. I'll probably clean my keyboard every six hours.

    Nope, I just buy a new one.
    New one costs like 6-7 euros.

    This is a useful tool, it's called "key puller".It only costs a dollar.

    The backlit keys on my Macbook Pro are much flatter than that very chunky looking 80's-style keyboard with highly raised keys and massive gaps between the keys for dust, crumbs, etc, to easily fall through the wide gaps and accumulate. A flatter keyboard (most modern day keyboards are flat,) makes typing much easier and quicker with less strain on the fingers than a chunky old-fashioned keyboard. The gaps between the keys are very thin and require either pointed cotton-buds (known as 'Q tips' in the U.S.) which are very lightly moistened in a special alcohol solution, or fine pointed tweezers to clean the keyboard when it's turned off, or compressed air in order to clean around the sides of the keys.



    I gently clean the surface area of the keys with an antibacterial moist wipe every few days to a week (sometimes daily... it depends on how sticky the surface of the keys feel,) as I don't like the feel of sticky keys... but usually at least a month or so (or even a few months) for more intensive and intricate cleaning around the side parts of the keys. I clean the screen and the trackpad every few days as I like a clear dust-free screen and a smooth-feeling trackpad. I gentle tilt my Macbook at various angles (to the side and upside down) for any food crumbs to fall out (I'm guilty of eating at my keyboard,) and then put it upright again, and I sometimes use a vacuum hose attachment on a very low and gentle setting to help remove trapped dust once a week or so.
