The best way to clean your keyboard
Before cleaning your keyboard, you should unplug it from your PC. You can then turn your keyboard over and remove the debris and dirt by shaking it and tapping it lightly on the back. For cleaning most keyboards, wipes that are moistened with either alcohol or glass cleaner are suitable. It is particularly important not to wipe the keyboard with a cloth that is too wet. Otherwise you could damage the electronics under the keys. PrehKeyTec therefore advises against spraying keyboards with cleaning agents. In the experience of the manufaturer, the best option is to use a moistened cleaning cloth.
However, caution is advised, especially with cheap keyboards, because their key labels are often only printed on. Therefore you should not use strong detergents. With laser-labeled keys on high-quality keyboards, cleaning is usually less problematic, since the labeling of the keys is not attacked.
Pro tip: easy-to-clean, antibacterial keyboards
Anyone who values a particularly hygienic working environment or who finds it difficult to clean a normal keyboard thoroughly, is best advised to use an easy-to-clean keyboard made of glass or silicone. The easy-to-clean keyboards are used in the medical sector, hospitals, the food industry or in other areas where special hygiene regulations apply. Due to their closed surfaces, such keyboards have little or no space in which dirt can accumulate. At the same time, they are protected against the penetration of cleaning fluids. Many models can be locked at the push of a button. That way you can quickly and easily clean the keyboard even during operation.
PrehKeyTec’s keyboards meet high hygienic requirements. You can find out about the hygienic advantages of different keyboard families here: https://www.prehkeytec.com/glass-and-silicone-keyboards-ensure-easy-hygiene-at-the-workplace-through-easy-cleaning/
