Hi all, I have a question. I have a Logitech G613 wireless mechanical keyboard. How to clean it, I read an article that you need to disassemble, rinse buttons and wipe with sticky stains and cotton swabs with spirit and so on. Dry with compressed air at the end. Is this cleaning method suitable for a keyboard with bluetooth connector and battery?
Thank you in advance

Yeah it'll work. As long as you're not using water or anything conductive you should be fine.

My suggestion is to take a more conservative approach.

Do you really need to clean the keyboard? Do you eat while using the keyboard, do kids use the keyboard, etc...

First, what problems (if any) are you having with the keyboard? Or is it just dirty looking and/or sticky.

Second, start by cleaning the keyboard in accordance with Logitech's guidelines/instructions. Doing anything else may void any remaining warranties.

Taking the keyboard apart is indeed an option but only as a last resort when all else fails...

What I do is simply turn the keyboard upside down over a paper towel and gently but firmly tap the ends and sides with the heel of my hand. Generally that causes any amount of crud to fall out.

Then I dust with a microfiber cloth and occasionally use an alcohol dipped cotton swab to remove any sticky spots or goo.

A full tear down is a worst case scenerio; e.g., a keyboard filled with soda, chocolate milk, sugary fluids.

during work, I often snack at the workplace, noticed that crumbs and dirt began to gather under the buttons. I like the keyboard, so I don’t want it to break due to my sloppiness
I think I’ll just remove the keys and wipe everything with a liquid for cleaning the keyboard, I won’t be zealous.
