    How would I go about doing this? I really want to clean them and I don't know if i just need to pop them off or what? So any help would be great.

    It varies a little by keyboard, but generally you just pry the fuckers off.

    POP.

    And you won't have to deep clean them so often if you aim some place else, tiger ;)

    exactly what i was gonna say

    i actually had a problem with my old cheapo keyboard (it worked perfect but it was battered and beat more than you could beleive a keyboard could get)
    i had droped it and it hit somthing that broke the prongs that held several keys into place specificaly tab and shift
    so i poped out so i poped keys that i never used like pause break the windows buton insert keys whatever and replaced em and i was a much happier person for it
