Cleaning keybies

Unfortunately, this method wouldn’t work on keybies. Wood glue would stick to the keybies’ sides, and make them come off entirely. Unlike rubber keychains, keybies can be cleaned with a damp (not wet!) rag (not tissue!).

Keeping keybies clean and looking new isn’t hard if you follow 3 simple rules.

We’re always working on new methods to improve the keybie as you know it, but until then, caring for your keybies is easier than you think!
