Clean your snow white keyboard

If you are using a white or cream colour keyboard, how you clean them if its dirty? Those black stain sticking around each key and for sure you are not comfortable typing on it...use detergent, soup water? Last time I used wet cloth and soup water to clean, but the stain can't fully remove away. I also afraid if I put too wet to wipe, the water goes into the keyboard and may spoil it.

Many years ago (opps..is it too late to share), I know it from Mdm Kwan (my church member) she taught me to use toothpaste to clean it. Yes, it is toothpaste. It works wonder and the stain completely removed! Since then, I used that to clean my keyboard and there is no worried that water goes down at the keyboard. No soapy feel that you need to rub a few times with clean water. You can use it to clean any plastic surface like your mouse, monitor, speaker, laptop and etc...Remember only the plastic area.

I don't have a white keyboard to show you the effect. Here, I did an experiment on cleaning the dirty spray cap coated with cooking oil stain.
