Keyboards are busy all day…mostly growing new little ecosystems right under your fingertips. Cleaning your keyboard doesn’t take very long, and it might save you from contracting an illness or two. 🙂 According to a BBC Report in 2008, James Francis (a British microbiologist) took 30 keyboards, a toilet seat and toilet door handle and took swabs from them to determine which was nastiest (probably not the official scientific term) in the United Kingdom. He found that the keyboards had harmful bacteria that could cause illness and one of the keyboards had germs five times higher than on the toilet seat.
Below is a video on how to clean your keyboard. See? That’s Cady Reporting saving your life ;).
