Make your Keyboard squeaky clean...

One of my main problems at home especially with my PC is cleaning the keyboard..we could not obviously get rid the fact that we sometimes have dirty hands, sweaty fingers while using the "most used part" of the computer. I usually sometimes eat in front of the PC while working on some important things and I just wouldn't know if small rice bits or bread crumbs are trapped beneath the keys. That would be unhygienic right? So now here are the tips and steps to clean your keyboard

1. Shut down your PC, and unplug the mouse, discs or CDs, USB drives or anything else that’s protruding from your machine.
2. Carefully turn the keyboard upside down and shake to get rid of dust and hairs (mostly the large ones).
3. Use a can of compressed air to blow off residual debris around and under all the nooks and crannies. You can also use hand-held, small vacuum cleaners/hose.
4. Get a cotton swab or simply cotton, put a couple of alcohol..only slightly damp. Do not "over" wet to prevent liquid dripping on your keyboard. Run this through the edges of your keyboard.
5. Wipe with clean cloth and keep it dry before using the keyboard =)
