Given the delicate nature of the printed mylar circuit used in CoCo2 and 
3 keyboards, I would avoid acid or caustic chemistry.  Warm slightly 
soapy water followed with warm rinse water then flushing with denatured 
alcohol might work.  Do the alcohol flushing outdoors away from any 
sources of ignition.  Burning alcohol is almost invisible.
