I just knocked my Keyboard (an old Dell) on the floor...the 'stuff' that came out! Stuff I don't eating! also some worrying pieces of 3D printing supports? If I ever cut myself on near it I will get a shot for tetanus...
Not the entire keyboard, though. Only the keys. I flip then all off and put them in one of these net bags made for holding pairs of socks together in your washing machine. While the dishwasher is cleaning them, I have easy access to the other surfaces of the keyboard, using a worn out toothbrush to clean the corners in the wells for keys.
The keys come out of the dishwasher perfectly clean and shining. Then they must be spread out in front of a fan for at least half a day to dry up the water that has come inside them. After that I must dig up an old keybard to get the keys back in place: I never look at the keys while typing, but if you ask me where, say, the 'l' key is located on the keyboard, I don't have clue. I just press the 'l' key, wherever it is located (This is similar to asking me to provide a list of which muscles I engage, in which order, to press that 'l' key: I can't. I just press the key.)
