My Blackberry Keys are turning yellow
So, I use a BlackBerry Curve 9360, and the other day my E and R buttons suddenly turned yellow.
I wipe my phone with a damp cloth everyday to clean it because I hate it when it is even slightly oily (I hate this OCD sometimes)
And so, I tried to wipe it off but it was still slightly yellow so I just left it be. But on the next day, some other keys turned yellow too like the Q,W,T,Y,A ...
What could be the problem and how can I get rid of this? As I am a very clean person, this is really bothering me :/
Hope you guys can help me out!

It's just a natural thing when it comes to all devices, even touchscreens. If you ever take off a screen protector after a while you might find it surprisingly stained yellow.
You could be a cleanliness nazi and make sure your hands are always super clean, but that'll get OCD quick. So OP, It ain't broke, relax.

That's why the white iPhone was so successful (of course that's not the only reason) but because there's no plastic its just glass and aluminum it just can't stain. But I rather get a sturdy piece of hardware than something that's fragile.

Umm, try cleaning it with damp cloth first. If that doesn't work, try some rubbing alcohol (again only damp, don't rinse it in that...), may be some acetone/bleach (again only a little damp cloth)....
DO NOT let any of the above get on the screen. Take a little on a tissue/cotton swab and just run it over the keys...
Personally, my white Pearl from 5 years ago is just as white, same with my Bold 9900.My BlackBerry 10 Apps

If all else fails the keyboard can be replaced.. about 10 bucks on ebay.
