if they are rubbing one another, this will come back. You may need to be sure they do not rub (may be only because the mortise are totally worn)

if the keys are warped the pins can be bend a little to avoid rubbing.

if a whole portion of the keys are slanting right or left,the mortise cloth are worn and need to be replaced.

talcum is not a problem with keyboards, but it may attract moisture in time. it is possible to use pure talcum in the cloth of the balance and front bushings, and even in the hole on middle of the keys. there are other dry lubes that resist better to moisture, as teflon micro powder.

Thanks, Olek, for your comments. I like the teflon comment and will get some.
