The key caps on IBM Model M keyboards pop off, and it's easy to
clean just the caps.  Just put a handful of key caps in a cup with
a little dish detergent, let it soak for a couple minutes, rub the
dirt off, rinse with plain water, and dry on a towel before putting
them back on.

Or just buy a black keyboard.
