We have boxes of keyboards at work that get thrown away on a regular basis, if I spill something in one or it gets dirty I just throw it away and get a new one for free.

I have 2 kids, 5&6.


I just toss mine when it starts acting up.
I can only imagine what they get in the keys

I have two of the original MS natural keyboards… You can take them apart and put them in the washing machine. They’ve lasted more than two years so far.

The only drawback is that you can’t type on anything else after you get used to them.

no, but i do pop the caps lock key off of every keyboard i use. my fingers are too big for most keyboards, so i'm always hitting the fucking caps lock key.

It can be fun to pop the keys off of a co-workers keyboard. Then rearrange them to spell out some little message.

Mine's horrible.

I vacuum it now and again.

I have a bluetooth keyboard so there's no way that I'm just tossing it when the keys get all, er, uh sticky dirty. I have to take all the keys off and clean it. But, yeah, there is some nasty shiite in there. And it's sticky from my son playing on the computer you nasty f(*ks!

how do you get the keys off without breaking them off?

i had to pop almost half of my key board off the other day....my AR's pin spring rolled off my desk and into the keyboard's fissures

found it on the floor beneath my chair after i took most of my keys off

nasty crap there (food, dead ants, hair, dust, lint, etc)

Swap the "M" and "N" keys most people type by sight not memory so it will work like a charm. Takes most people a while to figure out what is wrong

What a way to reach the 200th post mark huh?

I pop off the keys whenever I decide to clean my keyboard.
