cleaning under my keyboard keys

by lbuggy / October 9, 2005 2:02 PM PDT

I'm wondering if anyone knows if I can remove my keys from my HP Pavilion zv6000 to clean underneath them. I don't want to be mistaken and break a key. Any ideas?

I do it carefully. I make sure I don't tilt the bottle too much (the liquid would spill) and spray it not too close to the keyboard. I'm not sure if the dry liquid could damage the laptop though.
