Dear PC Doctor:

I eat while I’m working, and my computer keyboard gets well, a little crumby.  What’s a good way to get all that junk out of there?  I know you’re supposed to use those little cans of forced air to blow dust, etc., out, but they are expensive and it seems like a waste to buy air.  Do you have other ideas?





Dear Rachel:

If the crumbs are dry and loose, you can simply turn your keyboard upside down and give it a gentle pat.  Loose crumbs will fall right out.  You can also take a post-it note and run the sticky strip between the keys like a lint roller.

I hope that helps!


Until next time,
Happy Computing!
