Whether you want to believe it or not your MacBook Pro keyboard is likely going to get dirty.

NOTE: Before using any cleaning product on your MacBook, MacBook Air, or MacBook Pro, make sure you have powered down the laptop.

Cleaning slime: Cyber Clean

This bright yellow slime is just as fun as it is useful. Cyber Clean makes getting dirt, dust, and grime from around your keys easy. It may seem kind of silly, but grab some slime and gently press it down in and around the keys on your keyboard and you'll be amazed at how much dirt and dust it picks up. Cyber Clean will even pick up small particulates that you may not have even noticed.

Clean under your keys: Compressed air

A pretty simple product that Apple suggests you use to remove dust and dirt from underneath the MacBook Pro keys if you find the keyboard to be unresponsive. The key to using compressed air on your MacBook Pro is holding the laptop at an angle. Spray the air in a zig-zagged pattern and that you don't spray the air too close. If you put the nozzle too close to the keys, you could get liquid into them. That's the opposite of helping.

A few cleaning tips

Apple recommends the only type of cloth you use to clean your Mac laptops is lint-free, soft Microfiber cloths. They really are the must-have cleaning tool in your arsenal. Make sure when you use them, you only get the cloth lightly damp and do your best to keep moisture away from any ports.

Of course, keeping your keyboard clean is of the utmost importance. The butterfly keyboards on Mac laptops have been known to have issues with crumbs getting underneath the switches. Compressed air is some of the best stuff to use to blow out unwanted dirt and dust from your keyboard keys. Apple has a handy guide to using compressed air on your Mac laptop. The real key is to make sure you don't use the compressed air too close to the device.
