My motif keys feel too sticky..!! I do clean them with cotton dipped in warm water almost every alternate day, wash my hands before I play but the result - the same sticky feeling.!
I can’t even slide my fingers smoothly on the keys and it has made me feel so sick, I don’t even sit on my key these days..!!
What do I do ? Change the entire set of keys ? and BTW, my motif is 4 years old..Thnx in advance..

It is possible you are cleaning the keys way too much. They should not have to be cleaned (maybe once every 6 months depending on how much you use it) if you are washing your hands and keeping the keyboard covered when not in use.

What you could try is applying a very light oil (mineral) to a rag and wipe the keys with it SPARINGLY to give you an extremely light coat. Furniture polish like lemon Pledge may work also. AGAIN spray lightly on a cloth...not directly on the keys.

From that point forward...clean the keys with a smooth dry cloth...no water. Use water ONLY when there is dirt or sludge that cannot be removed with a dry cloth.

My advice: I’m using soft microfiber cloth (without water or any other cleaning stuff!) and I’m cleaning my ES every time after playing. After that and when I’m not playing, ES is covered with dust cover I’ve bought at Motifator shop. Just to clarify, I’ve used that approach several years ago. I have accordion that I’ve played since 1977 and the keys are in the same condition as the first day! BTW, I’ve played at that times (since I was in a musical school) almost 5-6 hours per day.
