They're a bit fiddly but yes you can take the caps off .. on most keyboards lift one corner of the key so you can see the little 'scissor' underneath, then press the top edge of that with a small screwdriver to release the keycap. To put the keycap back on just line it up in place and press firmly.

usually I just turn the laptop upside down and give it a good shake.

Mine are usually cookie crumbs. Who cuts their nails at the computer?
