Life hack: sticky note keyboard cleaner

Life hack: sticky note keyboard cleaner

Lately, I’ve been getting into the whole life hack thing, as evidenced by my eating Oreo cookies with a fork. This morning I read about using a sticky note to clean your computer and I once again hopped on board the life hack train.

Sometimes I eat at my laptop. Usually it’s something like potato chips carrots and celery sticks. That’s neither here nor there. Point being, I’ve been known to snack whilst staring at my screen, which leaves me with not the cleanest computer.

In order to maximize your cleaning of crumbs, if you don’t have one of those fancy air blower things (that’s the technical term), just grab a sticky note or two and call it a day.

To make the sticky note a little sturdier, fold it in half with the sticky side facing out. Run the sticky part along your keyboard keys to pick up any dust or crumbs along the way.

So clean! Unless you also have kids with sticky fingers, in which case you might need some extra cleaning supplies. Now you no longer have to worry about eating crumbly crackers while typing. Just have some sticky notes on hand and nobody will ever guess you’ve been chowing down.
