Clean your keyboard, peoples.
on: April 27, 2023, 02:03:56 AM
For some time now, I've had a nasty, crumb-filled keyboard and haven't done anything about it:



 Yuk!  :dunno:

Today I got the bright idea to clean it.   :ahhh

A soft, 1" paint brush to remove the dust and crumblies, followed by a sanitizing wipe, and my keyboard feels and looks new again.  Need a little pick-me-up?  Clean your keyboard!  I'm keeping the paint brush nearby for frequent touch-ups.  Maybe I'll try compressed air, but a soft brush works great.

I just wait until the keyboard gets full and then I get a new computer.

Leave the dents as they are- let your belongings show their scars as proudly as you do yours.

Why not just throw the keyboard away and keep the computer?

My partner bought a little keyboard vacuum.  One of the keys was acting up which prompted a clean.  She then got out the vacuum we use for our floors and uses the hose attachment which worked but is overkill.  I'd say its an ok tool for her keyboard and frequent cleaning as PN showed is good enough.

Mere adequacy is not to be underrated.  It landed me Mrs. Powernoodle, 30 years of marriage, 2 fine lads, a golden doodle, a vast hoard of SAKs and MTs - and a clean keyboard.

No need to aim for the stars.  Shoot for adequacy, says me.

I have a laptop.  Too much effort to separate them!

Maybe sprinkle chia seeds on your keyboard.  When they sprout, you will have a festive salad at your fingertips.

That's a good idea.  Sadly I don't eat a lot of salad, so is there a way to do it with bacon grease?

I'm guessing most don't clean their keyboards  :dunno:.  As said, the little vacuum was just ok, frequent cleanings  :tu:

Next up is are ear buds, and cell phones.   :popcorn:
