Protect Your Keyboard

Protect Your Keyboard

I know it’s only Wednesday, but so far this week, I’ve gotten several calls and e-mails from all of you regarding the letters on your keyboards. Most of you are telling me that certain letters are starting to wear off and therefore, you’re having a hard time getting your typing done. The majority of you have told me that only a few of your letters are starting to disappear, but that still makes it difficult for you to get your work done, doesn’t it?

So, is there anything you can do? Well, I searched and searched for a quick fix for this, but short of you writing the letters back on yourself, there just doesn’t seem to be a remedy for this type of thing. The best thing I came up with is to get a protective covering for your keyboard. With that, your fingers won’t be rubbing on the letters so much and your keyboard will last a lot longer. Most keyboard covers are made out of plastic and they are designed to fit all the contours of your specific keyboard.

Now, while this is the perfect fix for any of you who have just gotten a new keyboard, it can work wonders for those of you who have an older keyboard as well. If you’re missing letters on your keyboard, you can write the letters on the actual cover. That way, you know where all the keys are and you’re protecting the others from rubbing off too. Keyboard covers are also perfect for keeping food and drink particles from gumming up your keys. These covers can be found at any regular computer store or you can buy them online. Just do a search for them with your favorite search engine. Once you get yours, there will be no more keyboard mishaps for you!
