  • I'm a dork, I use canned air and cotton swabs about once a week on my keyboard. (I saw a special a few years ago about the dirtiest places in your house - and the keyboard was worse than the toilet!! Yuck!)

  • I try to keep mine clean as much as possible. You should look into getting those duster things that blows air or whatnot between the keys to keep them clean. And try keeping a bottle of hand sanitizer next to the computer and use it before and after being on the computer :D

  • I just turn it over and shake. Sometimes I use a big makeup brush. The best thing is not to eat over it.

  • I spray mine down about once a week anyways. We just have a laptop anyways with the kind of key where at 15 month old cant pul them off! haha. But since we literally dont ahve any room or space for a "computer area" we keep it on the couch or right in between the couch and the wall. DD loves to play with it while we are on it, it it gets full of finger prints and hand prints and wipes so every week I wipe it down with some electroic cleaner.. haha.

  • I have a laptop. I don't eat while I use it so it's still as clean as when I bought it six months ago. Although I did wipe the keyboard down with antibacterial wipes a few times since I had it.
