    This is going to sound odd but . . .

    My Logitech G11 is really quite filthy. Would it survive a good wash in the kitchen sink if I took all the keys out and then left it some place warm for a day or two ?

    It's getting to the point where if I turned it upside down we could all have crumble for afters !

    I would pop off all the keys and wash them in some warm water with mild detergent. The dishwasher could warp the keys if the water is too hot.

    Re: This is going to sound odd but . . .

    if its like the g15 you take the case apart and all the keys are mounted on the top lid, into the dishwasher on the 50 degree wash and out pops a new keyboard.

    it can take weeks/months to dry out a washed membrane if you opt for lazy and wash the whole thing.

    my g15 got darkholed and opened months later to see if i could fix it and found it still wet from the beer spill between the membrane.

    off a horse and helping your uncle jack off a horse.

    Don't have a Dishwasher, but am thinking will take the thing apart and wash all the keys as suggested by Cat, would fairy washing up liquid do the trick ?

    Yep and it is gentle on your hands too!

    A soft toothbrush should do the job.

    I would give the keys a good rinse after you have cleaned them.

    Think that sounds odd; I've had my keyboard since 2011 and never cleaned it. Now this is filthy.

    When I go on holiday I'll dishwasher it and leave to dry somewhere.

    Jerome tears himself away from his screen and picks up a discreet mini-vac. He vacuums between the keys of his keyboard.

    You keep your work station so clean, Jerome.

    Next to Godliness, isn't that what they say?

    Gattaca - probably the best keyboard cleaning movie ever made.

    Re: This is going to sound odd but . . .

    Prior to the days of cheap kb/ obsessive hording of components, I use to pop the keys, put them in some form of mesh bag(the mesh fruit is wrapped in from supermarket did a good job) and popped them in dishwasher. Re-attaching successfully greatly depended on the quality of kb

    Re: This is going to sound odd but . . .

    Like other have said popping off they keys and wiping the surface of the keyboard with a cloth and warm water for the keys worked really quite well, did this with a saitek keyboard a few times.
