Does anybody have any [non-harmful] suggestions as to how I could get all the crumbs, hairs and Heaven-only-knows what else has fallen between the keyboard keys? It's not really an easily-accessed place under the keys

Thanks for any ideas

I haven't had an iBook in a while but doesn't the keyboard detach? (I seem to remember removing it for a RAM upgrade.) If it is removable, I would think that you could spray it with some compressed air.

You might try taking off the keyboard and while holding it up vertical, use a air can to spray the crumbs out from under the keys. I am sure there are most likely better ways but that always works for me.
