Look down at your keyboard. There’s a good chance that it is the dirtiest thing in your room. It’s possible that it is even one of the dirtiest objects in your entire house. Think about it, how many things have you touched shortly before typing something? When was the last time you actually took the time to really clean it? Most people do little more than wipe off their keyboards with some sort of cleaning wipe. While that can disinfect the top of the keys, it’s still not going to get rid of everything down in-between them.
One of the best ways to really clean a keyboard is to run it through the dishwasher. Yes, I’m completely serious. Of course, you’re not just going to unplug yours and toss it in; you’re going to need to do a little preparation first. This mostly just involves removing screws from the back and taking out the sensitive parts. Once you’re left with just the shell, you’re free to pop it in and wash it with your dirty dishes. If you’re interested in the process, there is a great guide you can follow here.
