Coconut oil inside laptop - what to use to clean

Jul 16, 2018
Hi Friends.
I've managed to get coconut oil inside my laptop. It is now inside the keyboard and the display too.
I intend to take it apart and attempt to clean it out.
Please could an expert tell me what kind of fluids etc. would be suitable.
Thank you.


Rubbing alcohol or hand rub will do the trick. You could wash the keyboard with soapy water but you should make sure it's completely dry(in the sun, if necessary with good airflow) to ensure that it doesn't short your laptop upon firing up.

Use a handful of Q-tips and dump them all into alcohol and start on scrubbing, don't use hand sanitize, it doesn't dry very fast.
