When was the last time you cleaned your keyboard? For something most of us use (and eat over) every single day, there’s very little thought put into keeping our tech products clean. Below are a few tips and tricks we’ve found to help keep your keyboard in tip top shape.
- Compressed Air
Consider this is your new favorite cleaning supply. Compressed air (also known as canned air) can be found at your local drugstore and will blow last night’s chip crumbs right out of your keyboard. Plus, it sounds pretty cool.
- Microfiber Cloth
A microfiber cloth is designed to pick up dirt and dust much better than a napkin or the corner of your t-shirt. Swipe it over the keys every once in a while. This can also be found at convenience stores, most likely in the eyeglasses section.
Take that little yellow square of paper from your desk and slide the sticky part into the key crevices. You’ll be surprised what it picks up!
- Just Don’t Eat
The biggest piece of advice? Just don’t eat at your computer. No matter how careful you are, that cookie crumb or drop of beer will get into your keyboard, trust us. If you can’t resist snacking, try out the Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 – it’s easy to clean and easy to dry.
