Your keyboard is dirty
Most likely dirtier than your toilet seat!
Recent studies show that a PC keyboard typically holds up to
3000 microbes per square inch – compared to only 49 on a
The reason is that keyboards although used every day are
cleaned very rarely as opposite to toilet seats for example.
Your keyboard is handled roughly, and let’s be honest:
how often do you actually clean it? A quick brush with a
duster isn’t enough. You sneeze, drop a few crumbs and
touch your keyboard with dirty hands. The bacteria build up,
and your keyboard gradually becomes a bacteria bomb.
Therefore AM Denmark has recently introduced a new kind of
keyboard cleaner which quickly and effectively cleans the
keyboards with a mixture of IPA alcohol. IPA alcohol is a very
effective bacteria-killer, while it also dissolves grease and dirt.
