Cleaning the flat, grungy iMac keyboard
 
without rubbing off the letters. How to?
I'll already hold it upside down to prevent any liquid from entering the keyswitch mechanism.

Use a disinfectant wipe or a damp cloth. I also use those air cans to blow the dust out from under the keys.

Sounds good as long as the letters stay on.:thumbsup:

by letters stay on, do you mean the keys are popping out of the keyboard or that the actual letters are coming off the keys? If they pop out you can pop them back in place pretty easily, and the letters shouldn't come off from cleaning.

Yes, I was concerned about the cleaning solvent dissolving the letters.
Though, a bunch of keys popping off is not a good thing either. Maybe I should take a digital pic of the upright keyboard before I do this.
