Use a damp cloth (not soaking wet) with a cleaner like windex or 409, preferably something that evaporates. As long as you only wipe the keys down and don't get any liquid past them, you will be ok.

A monitor should be cleaned the same way. Never spray any cleaner directly on something like that.

Also, use compressed air to blow the dirt out of the spaces between the keys.

you mean the outside is dirty? Just disassemble it, they're not that hard to put back together. The keys either fall out the back side, or pop out the front. I've had a keyboard for 5-6 years, cleaned it half a dozen times, still works fine. Just make sure you don't lose a part.
