Hi, new age moms! If you know a small trick on how to stop your kid eating in front of the computer, let me know, because I’m still debating this problem. Honestly, I’m tired in cleaning breadcrumbs and food scraps around the computer, but the worst part comes when I have to clean the keyboard.
When filth gathers between the keyboards or any other tiny crevice that you can’t reach, well, that’s a real cleaning challenge. I tried vacuuming the keyboard and cleaning it with rubbing alcohol and cotton buds, but filth won’t remove so easily.
However, after some failed cleaning hacks, I succeeded in removing breadcrumbs and dirt between the keyboards with a super-easy to prepare cleaning slime. Dust particles and dirt will get stuck on the slime, instead of falling back in place.
Of course, you can find cleaning slime or putty in stores, but you can prepare it at home, without leaving your electronics covered in sticky gloop.
- 2 tablespoons of white School glue (such as Elmers)
- 1 tablespoon water
- 4 tablespoons Borax
- 4 tablespoons Water
How To Prepare This Awesome Dirt Remover:
- In a small dish combine the school glue and 1 Tbs of water, mixing well. In another small bowl combine 4 Tbs Borax and 4 Tbs Water, mixing well until the borax dissolves.
- Combine the ingredients from both bowls and immediately stir well, creating awesome cleaning slime. If you want Colored slime, you can add a drop or two of food coloring to the water in the “glue” dish prior to mixing.
- Play with the slime until it’s no longer wet, You don’t want it to be dripping, you want it to just feel “damp”. This process is great for the kids, let them handle it with clean dry hands, until it no longer feels gritty and is nice and smooth and very lightly damp. At this point, if you place it on a piece of paper for about 10 seconds, it won’t leave a spot or residue.
How To Use:
Apply this cleaning slime on those hard-to-reach areas and pull gently. You’ll see how dirt will get stuck on it. Repeat this procedure until all dirt is removed.
