I would know how I can clean the keyboard of my kawai cn 33.
I'm afraid I can do some damnage to the keys about the Ivory Touch keyboard.
It should be nice if someone could help me telling how he's menaging with the cleaning.
May I use only water on the keys or some special product.
Thanks in advance for helping me.

I just use a 'windex' type product on my electric and acoustic pianos. I will sometimes spray it on a cloth first and then wipe it down and I have been known to spray it directly onto the keys and then wipe it down.

When I was in the military (as a musician) I would clean the keys of a seven foot Steinway (and did so for 20 years) by spraying Windex directly onto the keys and then wiping it down. The Steinway never complained.

Use a damp soft cloth like you would on a car finish, although a car can take harsher chemicals than piano keys.

But a digital piano with a circuit board under the portion of the keys might. I'd go with David's first suggestion of spraying the cloth.

The only thing about Windex is that it has ammonia and a blue (sometimes brown) dye that may discolor the keys. I'd try water mixed with some mild soap.
