Eating at desk a dirty habit

READ MORE: Eating at desk a dirty habit
In many of our busy workdays, there's hardly time to take a lunch break leaving many to eat lunch at their desks, but you may think twice after hearing the next story. This keyboard looks and functions like a normal keyboard, but there's one difference, you can put it in the dishwasher. And you may want one when you find out all the germs you're exposed to during a typical workday. Jenna Marcum is like many people. She's got a busy workday, and no time for a lunch break. "I eat at work usually because I don't have time to go out and get anything and it helps me to be efficient and to get my work done quicker cause there's only so much time in the day." However, according to a University of Arizona study, the average computer keyboard harbors 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet seat. In response, a company called Seal Shield invented a $40 keyboard you can throw in the dishwasher. Jenna said she's not sure if she wants to spend the cash on the keyboard, but one thing is for sure, she'll think twice before she eats at her computer. You can view the products seal shield offers on their website at They also came out with a remote control you can throw in the dishwasher too; it will be available in early March.

That study was released in 2002. How about some new news


Try reading the story again. The news is that a company is now selling a keyboard you can wash.

i don't believe that because

i don't believe that because if you even tried putting a keyboard inside of a dishwasher, you will definetly mess that keyboard up for good and have to go out to a store like wal-mart, best buy and kmart to buy a brand new key board.


This keyboard is just like underwater cameras, it is in a waterproof casing.

You can put any keyboard in

You can put any keyboard in the dishwasher as long as you give it several days to dry out.
