Mix some deodorant in water and use an earbud to apply it on the keys and after some seconds wipe it off with a piece of cloth.

It is better to open the keyboard and do it.

You could just pop off the keys that need to be clean & clean them off, thats what I do on my TK. Another thing you could do is dip a cotton swob in some isopropyl & gently clean the keys.

Use deodorant and water it won't wear off the letter and also clean it.

As Payturr has stated, I personally pop off every single key (a bit time consuming) and soak them in water and let them dry before putting it back on the keyboard. Don't forget there will be dirt under the keys, so taking the keys off will make it much easier to clean the keyboard.
