It’s the last day of the challenge, and I can’t say as I was super excited about this task. Not that I don’t think that its something that needs doing, but it just sounded BORING!
But I decided to focus on my laptop anyway and knock out the task quickly. The screen and in between the keys was in need of a cleaning.
Here’s what it looked like in between the keys BEFORE:
Pretty dusty and yucky.
I would have loved to use some Dust-Off or something, but I didn’t have any. My husband suggested trying q-tips and rubbing alcohol.
I got each swab moistened in the rubbing alcohol and ran them in between each key.
The computer was off when I started, but then I must have pushed the right combination of buttons (not the power button) and some different screen came up. I didn’t pay much attention to it until I pushed another button and it changed it to a different language!
I turned off the computer and finished up my cleaning with the q-tips and then wiped everything down with a rag and cleaned the screen too.
These are the very gross looking q-tips when I was finished – yuck!
And here’s a close up of the keys AFTER:
Not 100% dust-free/factory new, but still, quite an improvement. And anyway, I’m not really sure how else I could have cleaned between the keys.
In other news…
I stopped at Big Lots today (a new one just opened up nearby) and I found a great deal on some snacks for Benjamin.
And he was quite a fan :).
How did you do on the last task?? Any tips on how to clean your keyboard??
