Well - you can put it in the dishwasher to get it nice and clean.... ;)

Seriously though -- if you get some Q-Tips and rubbing alcohol - dip the Q-Tip in the alcohol - and run it between the keys - it will pick up a lot of debris for you. Oh - best to make sure it's powered down while doing this!
If you're up for a challenge - you might even pry the keys off the keyboard to get down deep! I'm not sure if it's as easy to do on a laptop as it is a standard keyboard. With a standard keyboard, you can use a small flat-tipped screwdriver, or key, or similar object to pry them off quite easily -- they just pop right back in.

Hope that helps you! Happy cleaning!

Look at the manual for your laptop. Most keyboards can be removed.
Remove it and clean it.
