Hi All,
Here's what I used. Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.
All you do is cut a small chunk, dampen it, ring out
any excess water. Cleans between the keys ect. Made
my old keyboard look new.

I remember a lengthy board conversation on here a few years back about actually washing your keyboard in the dishwasher. I personally never tried it but several did at the time and they seemed convinced that a keyboard could be washed in water as long as it was allowed to dry before using again. I dunno? :)

A trick I use is to cover the keyboard with Cling Wrap. :) Sure helps and is easy to replace. ;) :D

If you mean, n2gun, type through the wrap and it works, that is quite the most excellent of tips I have ever read. It belongs in the Random "Brilliant ideas" thread as well.

You are to be congratulated. (y)

As cheap as keyboards are, I just replace them when they die. ;)

Hi, n2gun,

It is wrapped and all I have to figure is the desktop lighting so there is no glare on the wrap - that's no problem. For some reason (in the past) my keyboard keys got pretty dirty, and, with my diminishing eyesight and typing 'no how' this tip gives me added scope and ease for a long time.

I don't know from where you got the idea, n2gun, but your posting it here is memorable for at least me.

Thank-you.

Ben.

Hey Barry... that`s the best idea I have seen yet. Those erasers work great for all kinds of stuff.
I still use this when I`m in a hurry.................
