Let me say from the start that this stuff is like some kind of crazy Play Doh for adults. It’s essentially a jelly that you rub over your computer’s keyboard. It not only kills germs but removes all the bits of food, hair and other muck that builds up under the keys.
I thought this was going to be a gimmick. Far from it, it was brilliant. It’s especially useful if young children use your PC as we all know keeping things clean and tidy is not a strong point for most kids.
I regret to say that my PC’s keyboard was an utter disgrace. I’d been looking at it for about three weeks thinking “I really must clean this”. Goodness knows what was under those keys but they kept getting stuck.
When I first removed the compound from the packet I wasn’t convinced it was going to work that well. It was very sloppy and kept breaking into small pieces so I had to mush them all back together again. As I ran I the compound over the keyboard, it hardened up into one big ball that you could push under the keys.
It successfully pulled out all the junk, gave the keyboard a nice shine and left the whole thing smelling of lemon. I did take a couple of before and after shots but they didn’t really demonstrate how well the product worked. Let’s just say it’s done wonders and leave it at that.
I recently reviewed the CyberClean touch screen cleaner. I’d recommend using the compound in conjunction with this if you want to give your machine a real spring clean.
Cyber Clean cleaining compound costs £8 a tub and is available from the Cyber Clean website.
