Good redneck fix sometimes works for a few days. RAP it!! Use your finger and just hit key harder than normal typing a few times.

This offer comes with Redneck garuntee . "It might work man."

I don't pop them off and I don't use canned air - the key smash works quite well if it is a crushable crumb, but usually I go under the specific key with a piece of paper and sort of tease the crumb out (hold down each key around it one at a time so you can see/reach underneath). It usually hides under another key so you have to work it along to the edge to get it out.
