Coudal Partners use some innovative technology to investigate the pressing(?) question of whether you can clean a computer keyboard by washing it in a dishwasher.

    People ask me whether they should do this all the time, and I kind of think it’s ridiculous. Man, I could go on and on, but I totally disagree. You won’t always get to pick which keys work, and it seems like a roll of the dice as to whether you’ll be damaging the keyboard in a more subtle way every time you do it.

    I guess I was just never one of those people with a filthy keyboard. Some folks just can’t wait to try this! I find that kinda gross.

    ” You won’t always get to pick which keys work”

    Are you refering to the missing F10 and F11 keys? I don’t think they meant they broke — I think they physically lost them.

    I was so anti-this-video that I commented before I actually watched it. Yes, I sound like a retard, they just misplaced the keys. Having now seen that they manually popped off every individual key, I would argue that the convenience of using a dishwasher in the first place is negated by the care and effort they went through (ziplock bag for the USB plug?!) and the missing keys thing remains hilarious. I could pop the keys off and wipe one of those bad boys with a 409 in the time it takes to wait for the cycle to finish, and the shorter time span means less opportunity to accidentally flick a function key under the stove.
