Usually the only thing that touches our electronic equipment and keyboards is our hands.They are dirty, oily and collect grime easily. But did you know that the oil your skin exudes is antibacterial. It prevents infection and manufactures Vitamin D used by the body to convert calcium into healthy bones. It basically keeps us safe. Our fingers are packed with nerves for keeping the brain in touch with what we touch. The outer surface of our skin, mainly consisting of cells called keratinocytes, form several layers that grow outwards as the exterior cells die and flake off. The epidermis (outer most layer of our skin) harbors defensive cells called Langerhans cells, which alert the body’s immune system to viruses and other infectious agents.
As magical as this process is, this natural oil will build up on your keyboard or electronic equipment. It turns stale and collects dust and dirt from surrounding areas. If you are on your keyboard every day, the oil, dirt and grime can collect not only on your keys but around the keys and into the keyboard. Most keyboards are black. If they were white, you would be surprised to see just how dirty your keyboards can become in a short time.
Not only does this oil rub on to your keyboards, when you lean over your keyboard you naturally lose eyelashes and skin which fall into your keyboard. We live in a busy world and a lot of people also eat over their keyboards.This compounds the build-up on and in your keyboard. It is proven that bugs and germs can breed in and on your keyboard, monitor and telephones which are used on a daily basis.
