Question What's the best way to clean a laptop keyboard?

Must sound like a silly question to the experts, but I have to do something about my keyboard, it's getting in a right state.

Any suggestions?

I haven't got soda over it or anything, just normal wear and tear, the natural grease on my fingertips over time making the keys a little shiny, that sort of thing, few bits of fluff under the keys.

Thanks for your suggestions, thoroughly appreciated.
