My keyboard is starting to get squeaky (You guys ought to know what I mean), and I would like to oil the plastic between the keyboard and each individual key. Is there some sort of oil that's safe for plastic and that won't nessecarily hurt the layered key pickups inside? Something very viscous, so it won't run would be ideal I think.
Nothing I know of, but if you have the patience, take apart the keyboard and individually clean the keys and spray air through the contacts. Might be a help.
