Thank you for posting your question here on

It will not directly affect the cleaner but may discolor (fade) the plastic. Since the cleaner should never be in the water when the pool is in use are you certain there is a need to disinfect the cleaner? You may be better off washing the filter bag on a sanitary cycle in a washing machine instead of running the unit in a high chlorine environment.

I have the Dyson Kinetic Big Ball Animal and it smells so bad of wet dogs. There are no filters to clean and it stinks the whole house out. I will never buy a Dyson again. Please help!

Don't blame the vacuum, blame the dogs for getting wet. But seriously, you may have to make a heavy application of disinfectant spray inside the machine. Aterwards, the entire house will have the delightful odor of disinfectant but at least the wet dog odor will be gone.

How to Clean and Disinfect your Keyboard and Mouse

Recent studies have shown that your average desktop Keyboard and Mouse have about 400 times more germs than the average toilet seat and are one of the most germ infected objects in the household.

This is understandable as you are probably touching it after you went to the loo , after you had your lunch , shaked someone's hand , touched a not to clean door handle to get in the room and then there is of coarse always the few drops of coffee and some cigarette ash in there if you smoke.

This combined with little hard to reach places and a relatively light free environment makes an ideal breading ground for germs.

For more info , see this article on the BBC web page. Click Here

So now , we need to clean our keyboards on a regular basis. My keyboard gets a lot of mileage so I have to clean it on a regular basis and learned a few tricks in the process which I will share in this tip.

This tip is only applicable to Desktop or freestanding keyboards and mice. Do not do this on your laptop.

Okay , so there are basically 3 steps.

#1 Clean off Dust and other solid objects.
#2 Clean off stains and other stubborn dirt
#3 Disinfect

You will need
  1. Vacuum Cleaner (not mandatory but recommended)
  2. Compressed air can
  3. Liquid alcohol based disinfectant in spray bottle
  4. Cotton swabs / Q-tips
  5. A clean microfiber cloth

#1 Clean off Dust and other solid objects.

To do this , go out and buy a can of compressed air from your local department store or electronics dealer. Get someone to hold the vacuum cleaner near to where you are working and start blowing compressed air in between the keys of your keyboard.


The vacuum will catch most of the debris and make for easier cleanup afterward if your keyboard hasn't gotten attention in a while.

#2 Clean off stains and other stubborn dirt

Now , dip a q-tip in some of your alcohol disinfectant and rub it between your keys to clean the sides of every key.


Then , take your cloth and dampen a small area with some disinfectant or water and clean the top of the keys and the larger areas between keys. Do the same for your mouse.

#3 Disinfect

Now , use your compressed air at a reasonable distance from your keyboard and while spraying air , spray some disinfectant into the airstream and onto your keyboard. This will ensure that even the spaces between keys are disinfected. Now simply wipe off excess disinfectant from the top of the keyboard with the dry end of your cloth.

Also use some disinfectant on your cloth to wipe down your mouse.

And there you go , one germ free clean keyboard and mouse.

Please remember to rate this tip if you found it useful.

Mouse droppings cleaning

To clean mouse feces, I recommend you use a HEPA filtered vacuum as the feces contains harmful bacteria. If you can\'t vacuum them up, please spray the feces with a disinfectant spray. ALWAYS follow the labeled directions for any cleaning product before applying.

Hello expert

try cleaning it before you mess with any settings.

Your keyboard or number pad may collect dust and other deposits from regular use. Occasional maintenance helps keep the device looking clean and functioning properly.
WARNING: Before cleaning any electrical device or equipment, ALWAYS remove the device from its power source.

  • For cordless keyboards or number pads, remove all batteries before cleaning.
  • For the diNovo Edge (a rechargeable keyboard with a built-in, non-removable battery), or any other similar device, switch the keyboard OFF before cleaning.
  • For corded keyboards or number pads, shut down your computer and disconnect the keyboard from the computer before cleaning.
Keyboard and number pad cleaning suggestions:
  • Use compressed air to blow dust and other debris from between the keys. Logitech suggests using an air duster squeeze bulb specially made for keyboard cleaning to limit the force of the air pressure.
    NOTE: Avoid using high pressure air hoses and nozzles. Excess air pressure can remove keys or cause other damage to your device.
  • Use a small tipped vacuum cleaner to remove dust and other debris from between the keys. Logitech suggests the use of a small tipped vacuum cleaner specially made for keyboard cleaning. Many come with USB power cords and can run off your PC or laptop.
    NOTE: Avoid using vacuum cleaners other than the type previously described. An excess vacuum level and/or large vacuum tip can remove keys or cause other damage to your device.
  • Use a dry, lint-free, non-abrasive micro-fiber cloth to gently wipe clean the surface of your device. Logitech suggests using cloths which are specially made for keyboard cleaning.
    Note: Avoid using dusted disinfectant cloths or cloths dampened with liquids unless specifically designed for keyboard cleaning. Many cleaning solvents, chemicals, and other liquids can cause electrical and/or material damage your device. This includes leftover residues which can eventually damage your device over time.
Additional information:
Many consumer electronics stores and online re sellers offer third-party computer cleaning kits which include dry wipes, swabs, air duster bulbs, and micro-fiber cleaning cloths. Some higher-end cleaning kits come with keyboard vacuum cleaners, and/or product-safe disinfecting liquid for dampening wipes, for use in disinfecting the surface of the device. These liquid disinfectants are supposed to be non-conductive electically; quickly evaporate from the sevice and leave no residue. Logitech suggests you make sure these characteristics are plainly stated and guaranteed on the product package. These specially made keyboard cleaning kits are highly recommended.
  • DO NOT pour any liquids onto the device.
  • DO NOT submerge the device in any liquids.
  • DO NOT use a dishwasher, ultra-sound cleaner, or any other washing machine to clean your device.
  • DO NOT remove keys from the device.
  • DO NOT use cleaning solvents. Many cleaning solvents contain caustic chemicals which may cause damage your device.
  • DO NOT use drying machines, fireplaces or ovens (even set at lowest temperature) to dry moisture from your device.
Removing keys; submerging or pouring liquids on your device; using washing machines; exposing your device to excessive heat; or using caustic cleaning solvents may cause permanent damage to your device and will void the warranty.

I have the zodiac duoclear system and have used it for nearly two years. All in all, it's a very good system. I have had similiar issues on occassion. Have you tried the master reset button on the lower right hand face of the control board? I've been able to clear up the lights by resetting the system.

If the salt content in the pool is not correct, the system will not allow you to superchlorinate. Your salt level should be at 4000 ppm. The add salt light is programmed to come on if the system gets below 3600 ppm. When the system is below 4000 ppm, it is unable to generate the chlorine needed. The lower the salt, the less you can chlorinate. Might not be your problem, but I've run into this before too.

The lights for replacing your cartridge puzzle me. I'm making an assumption that your pool is probably dirty if you're trying to superchlorinate. The dirtier the water, the faster the electrode in the cartridge will get covered in scale from the current and conversion process. Try cleaning the new cartridge by placing it in a bucket with a 75% water and 25% muratic acid mix. Let it soak for a few minutes and gently swirl it around in the mixture. This will clean the contacts in the cartridge.

Keys with the Duoclear system: Salt content and clean the filters regularly. Don't know if this will solve your problem or not, but good luck.
