What I have use is Dawn dish soap and tap water. For me drying time was no problem because I have several keyboards to use during this time.

I also use Dawn dish soap to clean my glasses. As far as I can see, when rinsed well, I can't see any left over residue.

Good point about the dish soap. My only concern is drying time. I would leave the keyboard to dry for a week before plugging it in.
