Post Cleaning the key caps
I just got my OM today and i'm totally excited about it. I"m just wondering what the best solution/system is for cleaning the key caps. I already know that mine are going to get dirty and greasy. I imagine it involves popping off the individual caps but are there cleaners I should avoid using?

I did read the manual and I'm just wondering if anyone could be more specific

Funny, I haven't even noticed if mine is even getting dirty. I dare say as long as you don't use any abrasives or a hard abrasive cloth you should be fine. A quick wipe you keep you going for a while at least.

If and when I clean mine I will use an alcohol type of screen cleaner as these evaporate and leave no residue. Spray onto the cloth first and then wipe.

A humid cloth is the best solution for normal dirt on the surface.
Once I had some dirt under some key-caps. So I have removed the key-caps and cleaned them in an ultrasonic bath with a bit dishwashing liquid. Then I have dried them with pressured air. The result was good.
