    What I wouldn't give for someone to invent a good one..

    I suffer from Psoriasis...which is thankfully getting better with new treatment. But, after I took a look at my keyboard buttons, I noticed alot of grain attached. After I pried off all the buttons...THIS was what I found..

    Picture of grime coming late tonight [​IMG]..

    So, I got out a face cloth, a screw driver to act as a scraper, and some windex, and started cleaning. I look up, it's 2 hours later, and it's as clean as it's going to get [​IMG]. It now Looks like THIS...

    8PM, be there [​IMG]

    There's got to be an easier, quicker way to clean a keyboard without damaging it with water over dosage [​IMG]..

    I know what you mean, but if your keyboard isn't too expensive, it's probably easier to get a new one than spending the time to get the old/crappy one up to speed.

    Besides, any cleaner they sell would probably be just as expensive as a new one. [​IMG]

    Here:
    New Keyboard: $15

    Keyboard Cleaner: $11

    LOL

    once a week before 'vaccuming' carpets (find nearest female for explaination of process ' ' [​IMG] ) turn it upside down and shake vigorously watching things snowflake to floor.
    Once a month wipe surface with not-used-on-your-spagetti spill, kitchen counter rag, dipped in a light and bubbly vintage year for 'Palmolive'.

    Compressed air won't take care of that? I'm talking about a real air compressor, not one of those cans of air.

    Wow! I was thinking about getting something to help clean my keyboard until I saw this price comparison.

    Thanks, Mark!

    yeah, keyboards are pretty disposable now-a-days...unless you have a high end gaming/multimedia one, it's just as cheap to replace them once they start crapping out.

    The Problem with running the keyboard through the dishwasher is that I don't beleive it's Waterproof. It's one o' those Dell MultiMedia keyboards with the audio/video controls, Calculator button, net navigation, etc....so they arn't cheap to replace [​IMG]..

    I've tried those air compressors in a can, but it dosn't work. Where can I look into a real air compressor? Are they cheap?
