Dishwasher Safe Keyboards

Considering your computer keyboard harbors more germs than a toilet seat, how do you keep your keyboard spotless? I don't know about you, but my keys are covered with remnants of all sorts of things - lunch, tea, cookie crumbs... you name it, it's on there. Usually what I do is give it a quick wipe or take the compressed air can to it and this will do the trick. According to NPR a company called Seal Shield is advertising $50 keyboards which they claim are dishwasher safe. Although companies like Microsoft and Logitech dis-approve with this method, when blogger Scott Moschella put his keyboard in the dishwasher, it surprisingly still worked (after a week of being air dried) and came out clean as a whistle. After short-circuiting a keyboard with only a few tablespoons of water, I say Moschella was just lucky. So if you really want to get wet n' wild with your keyboard, I suggest purchasing one of the Seal Shield keyboards.

That's actually pretty cool! I might consider buying something liek that if I had money, but I'm more opt to buy the G5 keyboard than the dishwasher safe keyboard. I just use the electronic wipes and compressed air for mine, and get the hard to get crumbs and whatnot with tweezers.
