    John, best bet is to do a test run first - remove all the keys first. Put them in a cup or box which can also go in the dish washer. You will need something with holes in to go over the top to stop them falling out. Or just put them were you stick your spoons / forks etc.
    Remove the membrane of the keyboard, cover the USB or PS2 up with something and away you go. Just remember to remove the keyboard before the drying sequence....

    LOL - sounds like fun but definitely not worth the agro for a £2 keyboard.

    I've used aerospray (cans of compressed air) to blow out the bits that get in between the keys (its also useful for blowing the dust off of old monitors + out of projectors!).

    Also tried using a screen-wipe but it didn't seem to do much.

    Keyboards here are mostly kept in pretty good nick thankfully!

    Thanks everyone. I'll have a go with some of the suggested ideas (minus the dishwasher )
