Product Placement: A Washable Keyboard


I don’t replace my keyboards because they’ve stopped working. I relpace them because they’re so disgustingly filthy they’re beyond all hope.

I have a bad habit of snacking at my desk, working through lunch with a sandwich at my side, spilling coffee droplets, cookie crumbs, etc. Once, when I was still working in an office, I even spilled an entire mug full of tea with honey onto my keyboard. All of the keys got stuck.

Then, I was lucky enough to be contacted by the PR contact for Kensington, who offered to let me try out their new, washable keyboard. This struck me as the best idea ever.

If you’d like to read my full review, you should head on over to Nerve’s Tools of Attraction blog.

If you don’t give a damn about the full review, I’ll just let you know that the keyboard has received a thorough cleaning and continues to do its job. You can pick up one of your own for $39.99 at the Kensington website. It’s well worth the investment in my opinion (that is, if you share all of my bad eating-at-the-desk habits).
