My wife just walked in laughing hysterically and clutching a magazine. She handed it to me, pointed at an article, and walked off laughing.

FIRST magazine, tip of the day -

"To clean the most frequently used device in your house (your computer keyboard) take some of your teenagers Clearisil acne medicine pads and gently wipe off the keys. Use the clear variety only."


I'm still trying to decide to laugh or cry...

Acne medicine pads to clean a keyboard is not funny? Maybe the wife and I are getting old...

I have had the luck that I have never had to have that crap. I never had acne. It is called taking good showers and washing ones face properly.

Here's another way to clean a keyboad that I stumbled across:

If you take your laptop with you everywhere and use it constantly, you're liable to get a build-up of hairs, crumbs, and other detritus in the keyboard. To clean them out, take a Post-It note (the new 'super sticky' kind especially good for this) and run the adhesive edge through the cracks in the keys. Doing this is also a great way to stall when you can't think of what to write next.


Also I found a rather unique use for an old mouse pad:

Don't throw out that old mouse pad. Clean it off and keep it in the kitchen -- you can use it as a jar opener for that occasional stubborn lid.

BRILLIANT! Just used like 50 small normal adhesive ones and it worked wonderfully. Im sure the extra sticky ones work alot better.

You have to be very bored to even think of doing that. I take compressed air and blow it through, and since the keys on my iBook come off quite easily I actually just pop them off one by one and use a vacuum cleaner.

I can't remember who it was - but I seem to recall someone actually "washed" their keyboard! Put it in the sink and left it soak for a couple of minutes and then left it dry out and it worked fine!

X-Istence - I only siad I found these suggestions - personally I also give my keyboard a blowjob from time to time!:rolleyes:

I put mine in the dishwasher. I took out the electronics part of it and stuck it in the dishwasher to give it a very good clean.
