A Cleaning a Day Will Keep the QWERTY Tummy Away

No one wants to have to look at a dirty keyboard. Too often, people don’t bother to wash their hands after eating or using the restroom. Not only is this unhealthy for you in many ways… it can also end up causing you to fall ill with QWERTY Sickness. That illness is actually quite real, and is a coined phrase for a common form of food poisoning. Yes… you really can get sick from your keyboard – VERY sick.

Your keyboard is a hotbed for germs and other particles. The oils from your skin rub off onto the keys. Crumbs and droplets spill onto (and into) the data input device every time you nom at your desk. When you don’t wash your hands after using the bathroom and then return directly to your computer, where do you think those germs now reside? A standard keyboard can be up to five times dirtier and germier than a toilet according to recent studies.

You can take the time to clean your keyboard often, or you could choose to purchase a silicone keyboard cover. Those are fairly inexpensive and will save you a lot of headaches… and possibly some unwanted tummy symptoms. You can quickly wipe them down in under twenty seconds without ever having to remove it.

I don’t want to know what’s lurking on and beneath the keys. I now have my box of sanitary cleaning wipes close at hand to use several times a day.

  1. Ugh I can’t BEAR looking at that keyboard… It reminds me of the keyboard at this one model train club I used to go to every week… It was the operator’s keyboard that was used by at least four different people every week, it never got cleaned, and it got spilled into far too many times. The computer, on the other hand, was really an interesting piece of technology, as it was pretty much custom-programmed to be able to run the entire room of model train tracks. It’s a pretty neat thing to see, and if you’re ever in the Iowa/Missouri/Illinois tri-state area, be sure to drop me an email or a phone call and I can direct you to the place where it all happens. Pretty amazing to watch, and even more fun to participate in! I would do it still, but there just doesn’t seem to be time anymore.

  2. i totally agree…..don’t do it every day but twice a week. Also, don’t forget to disinfect you cell phone, house phone, kitchen counters, entry door knobs. Maybe once a week. According to Dr.Oz…..the steering wheel in you car and the kitchen counter top are the dirtiest things in the house as are grocery shopping CARTS….that how the feces get to the steering wheel of the car. Also wipe off the shift handle, both door handles and the door of the car including certain power buttons.

    DON’T SPRAY LYSOL DIRECTLY……JUST SPRAY ONTO PAPER TOWEL OR A COTTON RAG.

    BUT….DO NOT EVER USE ANTIBACTERIAL SOAP ANYWHERE IN YOUR HOME.. WHY…IT KILLS THE GOOD GERMS AT THE SAME TIME. THIS STUFF WILL PUT YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM TO SLEEP AND WHEN YOU REALLY NEED THAT SYSTEM FOR SOME SORT OF INFECTION…..THE IMMUNE SYSTEM MAY NOT BE UP TO TASK.
