Question about Computers & Internet
As scary as it may sound, computer keyboard can be washed in a dishwasher. It is not garunteed to remove all the stickiness, but if you follow the instructions, you will not damage your keyboard. Be sure to remove any batteries from the keyboard before attempting this.
Tie up the cord for the keyboard and secure it in a plastic bag, taping the opening so no water can enter. Make sure the cord is SHORT and tied up SECURELY, as the cord may fall into the spray arm of the dishwasher, which would be very unforuntate. Place the keyboard in the dishwasher with the keys facing downward. You may wash the keyboard with dishes if you wish, but it would be absolutely safest to run it alone. Put the keyboard through a regular wash cycle with your favorite detergent. Do not use a heated dry cycle, as you may melt some of the keyboard's internal components. After the keyboard has finished washing, you will need to leave it out to dry for at least a couple days. Make sure to periodically turn it keyside-down and shake it while it is drying, to make sure all the water is removed. It will dry faster if you pop out the keys, but this is not recommended unless you know what you are doing. Remember, if you plug the keyboard in without letting it dry, it /will/ become damaged.
