Gunk in your keyboard

Postby Yogi » Fri Aug 17, 2007 9:33 am

How often do you clean your computer keyboard? How much gunk came out of it the last time you tried?

i wipe my keyboard down at least 2-3 times a week. usually when my computer freezes up and i just turn it off. i take that few minutes to wipe it with an alcohol based cleaner. about once a month i turn it over and shake it out. but i try to not eat at the computer because it's so easy to spill something everywhere. i'm clumsy!

I use Air Duster Blast Away Dust. It comes in a can and does a great job, and is especially good and handy to cleaning the various ports.
