    Default Computer users beware!!!

    Keyboards 'dirtier' than 'tiolets'

    Guess I have to bring my cleaning kit I have at home to my office on monday lol.

    But really, this is a scary article normally since your home computers are used only by yourself and unless you happen to be a dirty pig you try to keep it clean.

    But office computers aren't normally your own machines and when you leave the office at the end of they day who knows who may be touching it.

    Neither would I, but I'm still bringing my cleaning kit and disinfecting my office computer on Monday. Perhaps disinfect my entire office too.

    Anyway I am not saying that ALL computer keyboards are petridishes for various bacteria, I am just saying we need to be very careful.

    Edit: I noticed I posted the wrong link perhaps, so I corrected my link to the correct URL.

    The list of things that are dirtier than toilets is quite long. I recently read about a keyboard that you can put in your dishwasher. Don't know if it's available yet, but it sounds like an easy way to keep it clean.
