Talking Very dirty keyboard

Hi guys !

I found a pretty funny test on the internet checking éhow many germs are living on your keyboard". Thats pretty... disgusting ^^

It actually seems that an average keyboard is more dirty (considering germs) than an average public toilet seat

Here is the test: How many germs are living on your keyboard ?

And here is my result: (be careful...thats digusting ^^)

You have 2,125,423 germs living on your keyboard, that's the equivalent of 215 toilets seats !

run it through the dishwasher it sounds stupid but as long as you let it dry completely and don't set the dishwasher to auto dry your all good. I did it with a laptop keyboard so a normal keyboard should be a piece of cake.

Try at your own risk though. I have ran motherboards through my dishwasher and they worked fine

My keyboard is covered by over 2,696,400 germs and bacteria !

That's equivalent to the number of germs on 539 toilet seats !

This is probably the most interesting spam I've ever seen haha. It's the only one I've ever actually clocked on. XD

467 toilet seats for me...

But it'll have no effect on me or on anything i do. There could be billions on there and i wouldn't change a thing. What i'm doing now works, and if not cleaning it all that often and eating at my PC is how i use my computer, then i'll keep doing it

More germs; more natural protection against them; less illness
