This guide will take you through a simple cleaning method used for all keyboards but is especially useful on these white keyboards as they can yellow over time and collect dust making them ugly and unsanitary to type with.

  1. Basic cleaning for the A1048 Keyboard, Starting info: 手順 1、 1の画像 1
    • Start with your dirty keyboard, most likely found from a 2003-2007 white iMac.

If you read some advice recommending to use silicon oil to soft keys, NEVER DO IT!!! Ok, it softs the key, but it is extremely dangerous, because oil can generate malfunctioning if reaches conductive board. If you do it anyway, try to apply it with a brush instead of directly and NEVER inside de hole where the membrane is. Always OUTSIDE sides.

Instead of that, I recommend a small brush and in the bottom part of keys, apply dry wax (yes, the same than surfers use for their boards!) If you apply properly, keys will be quiet and smooth like first day.
