Members of ca, today I was horrified, upon removing a stuch 'a' key, to discover a bit of a mess under said key. I removed more to inspect the damage, and to my horror found the following...
Please, for the sake of hygeine, clean out your keyboards.
(from the user who brought you jesus, clean your fan )
HAHAHAHAHA i just checked mine and i'm soooo not gonna post pics of it!
Your keyboard is even dirty whitout removing the keys D:
(I'm looking at the esc key and the F1 key)
I use to clean between the buttons whit an old un-usable brush once or twice a year. I clean it "Externally" as soon as I see something.
Come to think of it... I've never cleaned my num lock section
Do I dare watch? No sir

Used to work at a resturant. Kinda reminds me of what the deep friers look like when they get their monthly cleaning. You should collect all that and sale it on EBAY! ;-)
I don't spellcheck...
That's nothing compared to my brother's computer. It's a freaking pulsating organic-electronic ecosystem. He probably feeds the thing crumbs and pizza grease to keep it going.
I access his system when necessary via VNC. I wouldn't touch his keyboard with two pairs of gloves on. Yours - only one pair, or maybe just vigorous washing afterwards with the help of that industrial soap that smells like oranges and has little bits of sand in it.
Though nothing transcends this one comp I was recruited to fix. I don't know what the hell was carpeting the inside of the case but it was certifiably LOVECRAFTIAN. It smelt and looked kinda like a cluster of dead mice had been gibbed in there (fan didn't spin until it was uncaked of nether-sludge) and after carefully scrubbing the top of the CPU die with acetone and methylated spirits (it still booted!) told them to buy a new computer, in part to get the unwholesome fuzzy slime obelisk out of my sight. The way the power LED flickered like it was trying to communicate dark intentions made my witching-gland inflamed.

you make me sick, queenslander.

I can't stand it when I just have some gunk on the top of the keys, and shit underneath bothers me too. But my keyboard is wireless, so all I have to do to clean it out is invert between my knees and then blast it a few times with a bike pump, and it blows all the junk out.
Can't stand having crap on my board or mouse. >_<
digging up old threads eh? it was posted 7 months ago...
Now that's what I call an F1 accident...
I don't know if any amount of alcohol / qtips could salvage that thing. You might as well unscrew the top and throw everything in the dishwasher !
Seriously... cleaning up a keyboard SUCKS. Are there any models/brands keyboards that are EASY too clean?? Disgusting!
Yes, but then how do you clean the dishwasher?Originally Posted by egerie

I must say that I admire your choice in signature quote - Eugene Mirman is a legend. I love the bit where he's all worked up and determined to smash gay marriage through his phone provider and then he asks them if they provide DSL and he says 'no I can't because I won't save money!'
Waronmars: on looking at that a second time... that's pretty godawful. I actually retched (twice) from looking at the bottom corner. Yeh I'm a sissy.
Reminds me of the day our Lead Programmer took a couple of hours out of his busy schedule to pry out all his keys and hand scrub every single one. He collected almost a cup of crunchies from his keyboard, and placed them in a jar on his monitor 'as a warning'.
The worst thing was the presence of pubic hair in the jar...
when pubes twixt the keys, your workplace doth haunt,
tis keyboard and mouse, thou shalt not to flaunt,
for tis there that doth breed, a most terrible soul,
composed of dead skin, and various moulds.
To clean is a chore, but let it be known!
If you dont scrape it out, it will never stop grow'n!
.... heh, that was fun. back to painting...
THANKS ALOT WAR.... I broke a keyboard following my brothers instructions while cleaning it. Half the keys stopped working. Now I am on this sucky old one where I have to use a hammer to hit the keys.
lol pixel = owned.
sweet jesus war, lucky for me... by dropping my keyboard i accidently discovered that crap drops out when u bash it on something.
A regular dose of hitting on my desk gets all the shite out.
(too lazy to take the keys out )
Form, thats pure genius, cept the pube bit creeped me out ... in a keyboard? what the hell do you do !!!!?
im guessing violent and rapid masturbation in front of internet porn.
OR a bad case of crotch scratch.
Wash your hands people!

I just got back from my parents place in Canberra where Dad bought a new keyboard cuz the old one was sticking and not working properly. "Maybe it was the marmalade..."
So after pulling it all apart, turning the girlfriend off eating, and cleaning it all up, it looked and worked brand new, and he returned his keyboard. I'll be adding cleaning keyboards in to my things-to-do when fixing someone's computer. That grossed out look on people's faces is priceless. And after years of working for supermarkets, it takes a bit to gross me out. @:-D
Don't forget to wash behind your ears.
