Hi,

A few of my button are starting to stick now. Is there any way to make them not stick?

WD-40? Rasp
Are you on a standard white Apple keyboard?

Clean them?
Be careful though, water and electric circuits don't seems to like each other.

Most keyboards(everyone that I've used) will brake before there is a mechanical error that makes a key stick, if you accidently poured some joltcola in it and it's still working, cleaning it with water and drying it with a towel should work but you better be sure that it's really dry.

Yeah, it's a standard Macbook kayboard... How would I clean it? Is it possible to remove the actual key?

It was a couple of months since I last got my hands on a MacBook but it's just to pull the keys off on my PowerBook G4.
You could try using a small brush if you wish to clean it without removing any keys(it's always a risk that you'll brake a key(if your as violent as me)), however, if it's sticky I assume that there we're some sort of liquid/sugar assault?

No liquid or sugar has even been near this thing. I guess it's just dirt.
