I’ve owned my Ducky Goat keyboard for many years now and finally got around to swapping out all new keycaps. This post is less informational and more for me to keep a gallery of my Ducky Goat.
Over time the ABS shine-through keycaps that originally came with the Ducky started to yellow, as ABS normally does. I still kept it clean and through the good advice of 1UPKeyboards, I originally cleaned them with denture cleaner tabs.
However, ever since I started making my own HOCl, which is an amazing cleaner, where its neutral charge actually pulls dirt off the keycap; I found that it cleans better than the denture tabs. Once I use up all my denture tabs, I won’t need to buy more. Just soak in HOCl and give it a rub with a paper towel, and it looks shiny. Sadly, it doesn’t remove the yellow coloration from the ABS keycaps, though I’ve had people comment that they like that retro-yellow-tinged keyboard look, reminiscent of the IBM days.
So this week, I got a brand new set of fun keycaps and we got to giving my keyboard a makeover. I discovered these pudding keycaps from a fellow Massdrop user.
And here it is….
Looks great and feels good. These will keep me happy for a while. Next time I plan to swap out for some shine-thru white steampunk keycaps for a different look.
Here is a link to the my new keycaps
