A computer keyboard comes into contact with a wide variety of products that can damage and dull its appearance. Whether at work or at home, it is common to have a snack while using the computer, or to review and edit printed paperwork. While editing a document, you may find an error in the text, grab a bottle of white-out correction fluid, and spill some fluid on your computer keyboard. Wiping off the keyboard may minimize the stain, but as white-out dries quickly, you are often left with a white stain with a gritty texture.
Things You'll Need
- Cotton swab
- Dish soap
Moisten a cotton swab with a small amount of water, then rub it on the stained keys. Often, if caught quickly, this will remove all of the white-out.
Add a tiny drop of liquid dish soap to the damp cotton swab. The soap will cut through the gritty residue, removing the stain.
Spray a mist of WD-40 onto the cotton swab for dried-on stains that are not easily removed with the above techniques. Rub the cotton swab over the white-out. Repeat this procedure until all the white-out is removed.
Wipe the area once more with a damp cotton swab using water only. This will remove any remaining soap or WD-40 residue, leaving your keyboard clean and free of stains.
