Cleaning my Blackwidow Some Pointers Please

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello,

My Blackwidow Is in dire need of a clean, I was wondering if someone could give me pointers on how to clean It fully without damaging It.

It Is the standard without the backlit buttons.

Thanks.

I always take the caps off and soak them in soapy warm water for 1-2 hours. Then I use a toothbrush if they are really dirty. I vacuum the keyboard itself

Can you just pull the caps off with a standard screwdriver?, that's what I used to do when I had my Logitech Wave.

Yes I actually prefer using a screwdriver on some of my keyboards like buckling springs but I think the keycap removers are easier on cherries. I wrap the screwdriver with electrical tape to prevent scratching. Just be careful when you remove the caps, you could accidentally remove the switch
