A keyboard contains 400 times as much bacteria as a toilet seat. Ew. Luckily, you can clean it!

DISCLAIMER: I'm not responsible if you break your keyboard. But don't worry, that's not very likely.

Step 1: What you need

You will need:

  • a keyboard
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Cotton swabs
  • Something to rub the gunk onto. I used some toilet paper.
  • A flathead screwdriver, or something similar
will i hurt the keys poping them off
As long as it's not a laptop keyboard, it should be fine. But to be sure, check on a lesser used key, like Home or a similar key.
I just tried and it works great thanks.
