    I just took my keyboard apart and soaked the key tray in hot soapy water for an hour. Now the keys are quieter and smoother, and it has a lemony-fresh scent to boot!

    Interestingly, after five years of daily use, not a single key has a worn-out strike surface or a faded symbol. This is why I love Logitech.

    (now if only they'd make a f^&*ing Bluetooth trackball!)

    Take out all the electrics and toss the plastic in the water. It made my old keyboard feel like brand new. My new one may be in need of a cleaning soon as well.
    It might be a good idea to take a picture of the keys to remember where they all go.

    I use one of their trackballs too. I'm at the point where I hate it when I work on somebody elses computer and have to use a normal mouse.

    On my keyboard, the top part of the case comes off and the plastic tray that holds they keys can be removed from the circuit board that the keys press against. I washed both the top part of the case and the key tray, then I dried them thoroughly and reassembled. Good as new.
