Just how filthy is your keyboard?

#1

My keyboard had gotten to the point it actually offended me to type on it. After a semi-thorough cleaning with antiseptics, chisels, sandpaper, and various brushes, it has some of its original color showing through again, and no longer appears to be a science experiment gone wrong. I also found enough cat hair to make Miss Kitty a new wig.

For a quick test, turn your keyboard upside down and shake it a bit. If your desk is obscured with debris, consider your keyboard a 5 on the scale. Minor speckles score lower (though bugs of any sort propel you off the scale).

Mines is clean, but i need a new one as all the letter symbols have worn off.
Maybe i just talk to much :slight_smile:


#3

I have enough spare food in mine to feed a small African village…
It would rate a -5…


#4

Well… I can see the lettering on all the keys, there are no visible cockroaches, and I don’t detect a smell from my normal typing position.

Can’t say I clean it very often though - it’s probably on a biennual schedule.

Consider carefully your options and insurance before answering. :stuck_out_tongue:

I rated mine as normal filth and considering I have been using it continuously since 1993 I think that is a pretty good rating. I give it a good cleaning which includes an upside down shake followed with a good blast from a can of air about twice a year.

I have one of those Saiteks that have 3 colors that glow in the background , Since it is one a slide out tray under a glass table it is actually pristine. The glass table above it is your average landfill though.

Drage is trying to get me killed. :eek:
I didn’t say she has a wig now, though she has been known to wear some odd topknots on occasion. I still remember her evil hat. :slight_smile:

Disassembled and cleaned mine recently. So no more food for these little animals :bigsmile:
Some keys are shiny but this is normal wear :wink:

Laptops are ok; but the wireless could use a cleaning.


#10

My keyboard never had close encounters of the fourth type with coffee or other beverages, and I never type when I’m eating pizza, so except for some dust in the borders my keyboard is pretty clean :bigsmile:

I think a picture speaks for itself here :wink:

#16

Mines just fine but the letters on the keys are starting to disappear. Could vote as mine isn’t in the list.

Wow that’s off the scale! :eek:

I think we need a new category for that one, ‘injurious to human health’. :bigsmile:

Seriously though I couldn’t bring myself to use that.

Time for a new one my friend and if you’ll pardon the pun they’re dirt cheap these days. :slight_smile:

Mine’s like Dee’s, clean but the letters are wearing off.

Not too bad so far, but I’ve only had these for a (few) months…just a little dust. :slight_smile:
