Step 1: Materials
2-3 broken or unused keyboards
Paper bags/ Ziploc bags
and a old towel or sponge
Step 2: Getting the Keys
When you are taking off the spacebar, use the screwdriver to pry off one side, then use your fingers to hold it there, then with your other hand, use the screwdriver to pry off the other side, and gently pull of the spacebar. This will allow for minimal damage to it.
Step 3: Cleaning the Keys and Board
Take a disinfectant wipe and clean each of the keys, or you can put multiple in the wipe and move them around to clean all of them. Then sit them text up so they dry faster.
BOARD CLEANING: Turn the board over and take out all of the screws and pry the back panel off of it. Then take out all of the circuits and wires. Take the side where the keys were on and put it in hot water and use some dish soap on it too. Let it sit there for 5-10 minutes then use a old towel or sponge to wipe off the grime, then let it dry. For the other side of the keyboard, just use a disinfectant wipe on it.
Then screw the boards back together and your message board is almost done!
