This might help: How To: Clean your Keyboard Literally*Logitech G15* - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net

You should also be able to prise the keys of by careful use of a flat-bladed screwdriver so that you can wash them.

thanks Dwarf the keys pooped off easily and then you can see the keyboard is designed in such a way that if anything is spilled then theres a good chance it wont actually get inside the board, thankfully, so just cleaning the keys has worked a treat. thanks

That reminds me: My keyboard is due for a key cleaning session again to get rid of all the cake crumbs, bits of toast and cereal etc.
