How Dirty Is Your Keyboard?

The keyboard is the dirtiest part of my computer. There's so much junk inside that you can probably plant something in it. Turning my keyboard upside down and shaking it reveals lots of hidden treasures. There are bread crumbs, pencil shavings, hair, some dandruff, lots of dust, a fingernail, a dead insect, and a piece of corn chip. Cool. So how dirty is your keyboard?

I've read somewhere that you can hose down your keyboard with water and it will still be okay as long as you let it dry completely. I've never tried it, buying a new one seems like a better idea.

That is too much for your keyboard to have stuffed like that.I don't eat or drink anything near my computer and so there is no chance like yours.But it used to look ugly due to the dirt and dust.I use to clean it once in two months at the least.But now,i don't need to worry as I have bought a new laptop.Daily,I clean everything before closing it.

Well my keyboard used to be more dirty than my shocks. But couple of days before I purchased a new one. Now I cover it with plastic when I switch of my computer..

Keyboards can get pretty dirty. Mine is no exception. Things are in the keyboard. Food and I don't even want to know what else is in there. I try and keep it clean for the most part. Clean it about once a week or so. Since its at the end of the week, it's at its dirtiest. I used to have a cover for it but it just feels funny typing with one. Therefore I removed it, despite the fact that the keyboard is getting dirty.

Haha, just because the keyboard is the most dirty part, I use a plastic cover put on top of it, so nice and clean for ever.

Hi nocturn Ha ha, I think you are eating on computer table. My keyboard is the beautiful one and the reason is it is new and black in colour. Earlier my keyboard got dirty (it was white in colour) but definitely there was no eatables but I was little negligent for cleaning in the beginning. Even I tried my best to clean it later and I succeeded 95 percent only. So when I got the new one I am extremely careful with the same and always covering when not in use. Now I am happy that my keyboard is absolutely clean and looks beautiful.
