Hack of the week: clean your keyboard with a Post–it note
No, really. Endless studies conducted over the years have shown that working in a neat, uncluttered environment is much more conducive to productivity. In the interest of helping you work more efficiently, we hereby call on you to clean up your act – and by that we mean no more bits of cookie, remnants of birthday cake, or emergency ‘the-tax-return-was-due-yesterday’ biscuit living in between your keyboard keys to distract you.
Repeat the simple steps below:
- Take one Post-it note.
- Turn it upside down so that the sticky side is facing your keyboard.
- Slide to the left, then slide to the right (soundtrack optional).
- Repeat until the Post-it has collected all the dust and dirt.
- Proceed to enjoy typing on a grime-free keyboard.
