Cleaning the Keyboard

One of my favorite sites to surf is Lifehacker. (I could be wrong, but I think it was MasterGunner that posted about this site last year sometime.) One of my Dad’s favorite mantras was “clear your work area”…which if you ask my kids….was the beginning of OCD for me. (Not true, *I* know where all the dust bunnies are hiding.)

So, today while straightening things up around the computer, I remembered this post about cleaning keyboards. Tried the tape, worked pretty well. Check it out, there are some good tips in the comments too. Below is one of the main reasons I was obsessed (I can hear them laughing now đŸ˜‰ ) with cleaning the keyboard. The books talk about cats “blowing the coat”….shedding winter coats. That just cracks me up…as though they shed less at other times of the year. We’ve titled this photo, (obviously) Cat & Mouse.

  1. Since daughter #2 obsconded with the tape, I used the post-it method and the Etch-a-Sketch method. They worked pretty well, now if only I could figure out a way to put the letters back on the keys that I’ve worn off!

  2. We’ve never had a keyboard long enough to wear off the letters… I know how much you type…so I have no doubt you’ve done just that. I’m lovin’ my ergonomic keyboard…so maybe I will wear some letters off.
