Can you look at this picture and see where I’m going with this post?
Dr. Pepper does not belong in a keyboard! But this morning, somehow, it ended up in my keyboard. I would blame it on the cat but I don’t have a cat!
Since I’ve gotten to be a pro at removing Dr. Pepper from a keyboard, I’ll share a little tutorial on how to do it . . and do it so well that your husband never knows it happened (unless he reads your blog!):
1. Grab a paper towel (or two . . depending on how much spilled). Sop up as much as you can.
2. Grab a clean paper towel and tear it to little shreds. Poke those down between the keys. Poke hard . . they don’t want to go down there. (If you could see the crumbs in my keyboard, you wouldn’t want to go down there either!).
3. Use a straight pin to move the shreds of paper around under the keys. Don’t be surprised at what else comes out from under those keys!
4. Use the pointed edge of the pins or a seam ripper to get the shreds of paper out of the keyboard.
5. Spritz a little water down in the cracks. I use the little Mist It mister.
6. Tear more little shreds of paper and repeat Steps 3 and 4.
7. Wipe down the keys with a damp paper towel to remove the sticky.
8. Promise yourself to never have another Dr. Pepper near your keyboard again.
