Cleaning K350 Keyboard

I am trying to clean my Logitech WAVE K350 Keyboard. I have managed to get some dust out by using q-tips in the spaces between the keys and I want to take off the keys for deeper cleaning. I have tried wiggling them off but they are in there tight. Should I get a key remover or is there another way?

Mate try blasting the board with a compressed air can first up. Now some I have taken apart have small tabs down alongside the keypads that release the pad from the board revealing the small switches.
Now those small switches are in my experience a rubber covered switch which when taken apart has two "pads" that do the job of making contact that is the easy part or a unit type fitting as in the pics that the key pad just pulls off .

Putting it back together again can be a real pain and you may have to take that top "bezel" (top plastic surround) off to get to the release tabs.

Well I have a mechanical keyboard which does not have that rubber. The rubber is only for membrane keyboards I think.

Yep mate that is why I posted the other pic - there are more variations on those two and other methods of releasing the keys it is just a matter of fiding the right one and the Logitec site is not very helpful not can I find any Youtube vids either.

I use a vacuum cleaner on my Logitech keyboard, using the brush attachment & it seems to get down between the keys.

Compressed air could also be used but compressed air may blow dust etc. down into the actual switches.

Yep so do I for that reason plus the expense of the air cans and the argument that it causes static to e doesn't hold up because th airflow and thus the dust has to cross the surfaces causing static build up.
In any case I have a wrinkle whereby the end of a sort piece of clear tubing is earthed via a wire to an earthing point at the tip when fitted to the vacuum suction tubing. Plus the smaller tubing can get into places where the large ordinary inlet fitments cannot go.
