Cleaning an Apple Wireless Keyboard A1016
Today I picked up an Apple Wireless Keyboard model A1016 at a church rummage sale for $2. Despite having horribly corroded batteries in it, after cleaning the corrosion, it works just fine. However, it is filthy. I can see dirt and grim in the clear sides. How do I take apart this keyboard to clean it?

You can, VERY CAREFULLY, prise the back off with with a spudger. A metal one may be best. Then, you can use a can of compressed air to blow out dust/similar.
Whatever you do, don't use anything wet, cleaning alcohol, or solvent! Possibly a stiff toothbrush to remove any recalcitrant muck? TBH, if it's that mucky, that could be why the prior owner disposed of it.
How on earth did you clean out the corrosion on the inner battery terminal??
