When you’re using your computer day in and day out (in fact, you’re probably using it to read this right now!), it’s no surprise that the gadgets on your desk can be a hot spot for food residue, dirt, and germs. With all the tiny crevices, your keyboard is particularly susceptible to trapping unwanted grime. Here’s how to give it a quick clean:
-Disconnect the keyboard, turn it over, and gently shake.
- Clean between the keys with a few blasts of compressed air and wipe with Q-tips dipped in alcohol or a mild all-purpose cleaner.
If you regularly eat at your computer, consider buying a clear plastic guard (available at office supply stores) to leave on while you work. Or, better yet, invest in this clever washable keyboard.
