Top tip: How to clean your keyboard in under a minute!


One day I realized how disgusting my iMac keyboard had gotten after 3 years of use.  In the back of my mind, I thought I’d seen something online about cleaning keyboards with Magic Erasers.  (Yep, these guys.  I use them for tons of random cleaning stuff.)
