How often do you clean your keyboard? If the answer is “not often enough,” then you’re not alone. Many people don’t think about cleaning their keyboard until it’s too late. The fact is, though, that your keyboard can get really dirty if you don’t clean it regularly. Not only are there food crumbs and oils to contend with, but also dust and other debris. In this blog post, we will discuss how to clean your keyboard and what you’ll need to do it.

Keyboard Brush

It can help remove all the crumbs, dust, and debris from your keyboard. It’s also important to use a mild soap or cleaning solution on your Keyboard Brush. This will help remove any oils or grease that may be on your keyboard. Begin by turning off your computer and unplugging the keyboard. Next, use the brush to gently clean the keys and in between them. Be sure to pay special attention to any areas where there is a lot of build-up.

Compressed Duster

This will help remove all of the smaller crumbs and debris that are stuck in between the keys. Simply hold the can upright and spray in between the keys. Be sure to do this in a well-ventilated area, as the compressed air can be harmful if inhaled.

Cleaning Gel

You’ll need a cleaning gel specifically made for keyboards in order to get all the dirt and grime out from between the keys. Look for a gel that’s safe to use on electronics and won’t damage your keyboard. Apply the gel to a clean cloth and then gently rub it over the keys, taking care not to press too hard and damage the delicate electronics beneath. Wipe away the excess gel and you should be good to go!

Disinfectant Wipes

You’ll want to make sure you have some disinfectant wipes on hand to clean your keyboard. Disinfectant wipes are great because they’re pre-moistened and they kill 99.99% of germs, which is important when you think about all of the bacteria that could be living on your keyboard. You can find disinfectant wipes at most drugstores or supermarkets. Be sure to get a brand that’s safe to use on electronics.

Handheld Vacuum

A handheld vacuum is key (no pun intended) for getting all of the crumbs and debris out from in between the keys. Be sure to use one with a soft brush attachment, so as not to damage the keys.

Dish Soap

You’ll need this to break down the oils and grease on your keyboard. Fill a bowl with warm water and add a squirt or two of dish soap. Dish detergent is formulated to break down grease, so it’s perfect for cleaning your keyboard.

Microfiber Cloth

This will help you scrub away all the built-up grime on your keyboard. Make sure to use a soft, lint-free cloth so you don’t damage the keys. Dip the microfiber cloth in your dish soap and use it to clean the keys on your keyboard.

Cotton Swabs

Cotton swabs are great for getting into all the nooks and crannies of your keyboard. Dip the cotton swab in your dish soap and use it to clean hard-to-reach areas.

And that’s it! With just a few minutes of work, you can have a clean keyboard that looks and works like new. So next time you’re eating lunch at your desk, don’t be afraid to get a little messy — you know you can always clean it up later.
