Info on this product category: Keyboard Cleaners

Why Go Green

Avoid aerosol dusters when possible because they are not reusable, use fluorocarbon propellants that can cause climate change, and are relatively expensive.  Brushes, air blowers and vacuums are effective alternatives for routine keyboard and electronics cleaning.

Criteria for Keyboard Cleaners

Keyboard and/or electronics cleaning devices must not contain aerosol propellants with a Global Warming Potential (GWP)  > 1,  using figures from the 2007 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fourth Assessment Report (AR4).

Controllable and quiet

Average: 5 (1 vote)

Pros: more controllable than blowers. better for environment. cute.
Cons: visually doesn't clean quite as well as blowers. easy to misplace.

I noticed it had some sticky tape on it to keep from misplacing it, but I couldn't commit yet to sticking it on my laptop. I've only used it once, but it did a good job of brushing stuff from between the keys. I think it doesn't quite get the finer dust as well as a blower, but I don't really care.

Brush Duster

I used a similar brush and though it sweeps the keyboard somewhat, it does not actually clean between the keys which is what the gas spray can does. Maybe we need some sort of keyboard dental floss with multiple fingers, so that it will not take hours to clean the keyboard? I think we need a rating btwn fair and very poor. Maybe just poor?
