Many hands might touch the surface, and we often are using it while eating and drinking, so it is obvious it is going to get dirty.
How often do we give it the attention it deserves when it comes to keeping it clean?
A wipe down with a soft cloth, wet wipe or screen cleaner will go some way towards cleaning the surface, but what about getting into the nooks and crannies?
Did you know there is something lurking in your bathroom vanity that is perfect for that job.
An interdental brush, otherwise called a dental pick, has a fine brush on the tip and is sold as a variation to dental floss.
The brushes are recommended by dentists, particularly for people with braces, large tooth gaps, advanced gum disease or hard-to-reach back teeth because of their superior cleaning ability.
That makes them perfect for cleaning in and around the keys of your keyboard where crumbs can get lodged, and dust builds up, eventually causing problems.
The interdental brushes vary in width to fit different tooth gaps so you can buy them to suit different types of keyboards too.
The Swedish tooth cleaner has been all the rage in western Europe, and now they are readily available now in Australia, through your local chemist or supermarket.
