Default Cleaning BB Keyboard

Please Login to Remove!

I read on another BB forum of a user wanting information on how to clean his BB, more importantly how to disinfect it. More or less was chastised by some members by saying he should wash his hands more but made me think of my profession. I am in the correctional profession which if you have never seen is far from "clean". I wash my hands frequently while at work but at the end of the day would still like to give my keyboard a passover with a wipe or alcohol.

My question is would rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip (moistened Q-tip, not dripping alcohol) or one of those Clorox wipes be ok?

Thanks!

One of those would be, as you said not dripping but damp. Same with the cloth, not dripping.

This is a good question. I wiped mine down with a Chlorox wipe once, but I let the wipe dry out some first so it wasn't so moist. But I don't know if that's a good idea or not.

Not trying to sound like a jack@$$, but this kind of info would be good to have on BBFAQ.
