    I don't clean mine. I don't eat over it and it is in a room that is closed off to the cats in the daytime. Occasionally I buy a new one, they are cheap. The old one goes to the charity shop.
    that's probably what i need to do - buy a new one

    Keyboards are pretty cheap, but before you toss it, run it through the dishwasher. I'm NOT kidding. Just make sure you air dry it for like, 6 days or someting, to make sure it's really dry.
    Microsoft warns against it, but I've never come across anyone who's had problems. Besides, if you're going to buy a new one, what have you got to lose?

    send out some pms ... see who nibbles. :wink:
    With many of us in the summer season, it's possible many are just outside enjoying the summer weather. I find I'm not online as much in the summer as I am in the other seasons. Many people are probably out of town, summer travel, etc. I'm sure more people will surface when the weather begins to cool down.

    I still lurk here, but mostly here at work or the occasional looksie when I'm home in the evenings when the sun is gone down!!!

    Cheers

    I've never put mine through the dishwasher, but I do dunk it in a sink of hot soapy water and swish it around! :-)
    The key is to make sure it's absolutely dry, before using it again.
