post #12911 of 14551
So I spilled some pepsi on my Leopold right before I was leaving for the week. I couldn't immediately clean it as I had to leave, but I just wiped it up and left. I come back a week later and my keys are sticky. I'm going to do the distilled water method, but what are the chances of it cleaning it if its a week old spill?

I just pressed the buttons while it was in the tub. That should be fine. And you don't need distilled water, tap water works fine. Or at least Danish tap water works fine.. but we have some of the best tap water in the world

Pull all the sticky keys and dip then into warm water with soap for 15. Then rinse it clean. For the internal board. You want to try with a toothbrush with a bit of water and soap. Q-Tip works.

This guide has been very useful in helping me find the right mechanical keyboard. I have ultimately gone with the WASD keyboard with blue cherry switches and couldn't be happier. Its a joy to type on and I have sense watched my average WPM increase along with my accuracy in games. Well worth the money IMO.

Let us know how that goes.

By the chattering, I mean when I get something like this:
"d d d d dd d d d dd d d d d ddd d d d d d dd ddd d d" when I key the key then the spacebar. You think the cleaning method will fix this type of issue?

Well, to be perfectly honest the OP doesn't really address this problem.

I looked at that thread. It seems to me that they want you to clean it. That is always a good first step. My method could help and is cheep, worth a try before you do something drastic. The third thing would be to remove the switch and replace it, but I would think that would only be an option if it is only the one key and needs you to solder.

Try this. Take some non-slip mat. Cut out a 3x3 bumps square of mat. Then cut the center bump out, making a ring. Slip that over the stem. It will feel like it takes a lot of force to trip the switch now but the thinner the mat the better. Does it chatter now?

Ive been wondering if I should get the Ducky Shine or the Filco majestouch 2. I can get the ducky shine for 159.99 with $20 shipping and the Filco for $139 on amazon with free shipping. Ive heard that Filco's start to shine very quickly but the keycaps can be easily replaced. I dont know much about the Ducky except it most likely has double shot "super abs" caps that I guess cannot be replaced easily since it has the led's.

Anyone have any suggestions?
What about the noppoo pro or Das S.

Im looking for browns or clears BTW LED preferable.
