How do I clean piano keys?

Asked by gailcalled (54570points) March 27th, 2007
I can't tell whether they are plastic or ivory. Probably plastic. Growing up, we had a Steinway w. ivory keys (a no-no now) and my mother used milk. That doesn't seem like a good idea today, altho I don't remember smelling sour milk while I practiced.

Regular toothpaste can be used to polish piano keys.
