So, it’s not surprising that computer keyboards are teaming with bacteria that can make us ill.
Keeping your keyboard clean and germ-free
It’s actually quite easy to clean up your keyboard, and a few of the handy and cheap things (well, when I say cheap, these are things that we usually have around the house) you can use to keep your computer keyboard clean are cotton bud/swabs, a Vacuum cleaner/Hoover, some rubbing alcohol or surgical spirit, which you can buy at any chemist or supermarket.
- Use the small brush or hose attachments supplied with your vacuum cleaner/Hoover to suck out any dust or food crumbs that have become lodged under and between the keyboard keys.
- Using the cotton swabs and a little of the spirit or rubbing alcohol, which you can buy from a chemist or pharmacy to clean between the keys of the keyboard. The spirit or alcohol will help to disinfect your keyboard, keeping it not only looking clean and new, but germ-free as well.
