How do I clean my Razer Keyboard?
Before cleaning, we suggest unplugging the device from your computer. If you wish to clean under the key caps, Razer suggests holding the unit upside down and/or using compressed air from a can. The overall finish can be cleaned with wipes generally used for cleaning your computer monitor or sunglasses. Please ensure that the surface is free of large dust particles or debris before wiping the surface with any product. Wiping debris into the surface can lead to minor scratches on the surface of the unit.

NOTE: Under no circumstances should you ever submerge the keyboard in any type of liquid. Submerging the keyboard in any liquid will void the warranty on your keyboard.

Is the wrist rest detachable?
