How Can I Clean Out My Laptop Keyboard?

Episode 1835 (18:50)

Jacob from Orange County, California
Sugar

Jacob's laptop had a whole bowl of sugar dropped on it. Is it OK? Leo says that since it's dry sugar, it's probably OK. Try and shake it out first. Then take a picture of the keyboard for reference and then gently pry off the keycaps. This will expose the switches underneath. You can then use a can of air to blow out any lingering granules of sugar. A vacuum with a small attachment will also work. Then all you need to do is press the keycaps down in the proper order.
