I took it apart and thoroughly cleaned it, re assembled it, but the keys are still sticking. The keys are plastic and sit inside a plastic housing, which makes them stick. I do not recommend this keyboard. There are other boards out their that are of better quality for the same or lower $. For example, the Enermax Aurora kb006-b, of which boasts 10,000,000 key stroke life; because of their scissor design, two USB 2.0 ports on the side and extra function keys that use the native os drivers. Look around before you buy the Hiper board.
Just my 2 cents
Try a light mist of silicon lubricant used for refrigerator door seals.
It won't react with plastic, then remove excess
