UK Consumer group Which? conducted the test that showed keyboards may actually be dirtier than a toilet seat:
Out of 33 keyboards swabbed, four were regarded as a potential health hazard and one harboured five times more germs than one of the office's toilet seats.
Microbiologist Dr Peter Wilson said a keyboard was often "a reflection of what is in your nose and in your gut".
During the Which? tests in January this year, a microbiologist deemed one of the office's keyboards to be so dirty he ordered it to be removed, quarantined and cleaned. It had 150 times the recommended limit for bacteria - five times as filthy as a lavatory seat tested at the same time, the research found.
What about the _types_ of bacteria? Fair enough if my keyboard for some reason is full of the types of bacteria found in faeces, but otherwise, shut the fuck up!
How about this... 100 people with a cold are "dirtier" than 1 person with ebola. Which would you rather share a train with though?
Some of it is from fecal matter because so many disgusting people refuse to wash their hands
Besides, how often do you clean your toilet seats? How often do you clean your keyboards? Right.
There are folks who put their keyboards in the dishwasher, but I'm afraid to do that. The only time water was spilled on mine (roof leak), the laminated layers inside took so long to dry that they corroded a bit. It never worked perfectly afterward. That's a Mac keyboard; your mileage may vary.
My current keyboard, an old clicky IBM Model M model, can remove the keytops, but is pretty tricky to actually open up and get all the crumbs out of.
They sacked me, I admit I was fiddling the accounts, but the charges were thrumped up.
They pay cash in hand for cetain jobs.
Use illegal employees and they do not pay national minimum wage.
Use a rival.
