Impulse Buy = Bad Idea

Something I've needed for a while now is a new keyboard for my computer, but I wasn't going to get one yet until we got caught up on our bills. While going from one end of the store to the other I saw a display of colored keyboards that came in green, pink and blue. I stopped to admire them and walked on by. A few minutes later I went back and picked out a pretty green one since that's my favorite color. I needed a replacement because my old one got quite sticky from eating at my computer. I thought, wrongly, that this one would be exempt from the same problems since the keys are made differently. I've not even had it a lweekl anldl lalready several keys are stuck down. This is what i now have to deal with. At first it was only the L key, but for some reason now it's adding that letter wherever it desires. I have pipe cleaners to clean hard to reach places, it looks like I need to get at this before I give up. Just remembered I'm on firefox and therefore, grammarly isn't present. I left the three odd words there on purpose to show what it's doing to me, yikes!

@RubyHawk I shouldn't eat at it, but I do. We are all rarely home at the same time for meals and even when we are we are usually in our own areas while eating. We should never have started that habit, it's not a good one that's for sure.

I'll have to look at the manufacturers website for clues on ways to clean below the keys. Until then, I've reverted back to my older keyboard which I cleaned up beforehand. At least those keys will pop out and back in easily. I'm also covering the keys when eating at my desktop to minimize it getting as bad as it was before.

I had to go back up to see the mistakes. I am one of those who reads right through them---like that thing that comes through facebook a lot where all of the letters in the words are mixed up but it can still be read just as freely as if they are all right.
