Cleaning the computer keyboard

Postby all_apologies » Sun Jan 16, 2005 2:39 pm

Is there an easy way of doing this cause I can see loads of rubbish when I look into it, but can't get it out. Cheers

Yeah it's what I've been doing for now and it's horrible! Just wondered if there was a way you're supposed to do it cause there are still lots of crumbs and the like blocking it up.

I've never cleaned mine, I always forget...

There's a special aerosol but I can't remember what it's called. It has a long detachable nozzle and it sprays air into the keys and lifts all the dirt.

You can get special gadgets for doing that type of stuff, some of them are like little cans that shoot a very strong blast of air into little crevices. I think you can get them from stationery shops and the like. Try Viking Direct (www.viking-direct.co.uk).
