So about a year ago I got a new Keyboard, the Logitech G910. After only about a month of use I was stupid enough to spill a pint full of Dr. Pepper all over it, I don’t even drink any sort of fizzy drink anymore, I got tired of feeling like ■■■■ with all that sugar, but none the less. At the time I was really pissed and couldn’t be arsed to clean it, so I just sat it upside down for a while to let it drain, then packed it back into its box. Now (about a year later) I want to use it again, but all the keys are covered in dry sugary gunk, and feel horrible. I made one attempt to try and clean it with some Q-Tips dipped in water around the key switches, which helped for about 30 mins before they dried again and were once again sticky. So ever since this happened I’ve been using my old faithful Corsair K95. But like I said, I wish to use my G910 once again.
And so I ask you, what is the best way to go about cleaning it? I’ve done a bit of searching, but some places say I should take the whole thing apart and clean every bit individually, some say submerge it in water/rubbing alcohol for a period of time, some say put it in the Dishwasher with heated drying turned off, and I’ve even seen a few say I should completely dismantle the whole thing, meaning I would have to re-solder everything to get it back together. So I’m really not sure what the best coarse of action is.
Like I said, its a Logitech G910 if that matters. and its been like this for about a year now. Have I left it too late? Should I just get a new one? Or is this salvageable?
Thank you in advanced for any help!
