Germophobe or not, there's no denying keyboards be cesspools of dirty, dirty, germy, gross grossness. Like, probably if someone asked you if you would rather lick a keyboard or lick a stripper pole, you would say a keyboard, but given how many people use the computer and then use the restroom without washing their hands and then use the computer again, or use the computer and then go...do other stuff without washing their hands and then use the computer again, I doubt there is much difference between the sweaty, crotch-caressed metal cylinders we encounter once or twice a month (if lucky) and the QWERTY surfaces we use every day.

Now I don't know what can be done about the stripper poles, but Logitech has one about-damn-time solution to the keyboard sanitation problem: the K310 Washable Keyboard. They claim its design keeps the laser-printed and UV-coated key characters looking and functioning like new, even after many a dunk in the kitchen sink. And while the keyboard isn't dishwasher-safe, it can be both wiped down with a wet cloth, and hand washed with mild soap in warm water up to 11 inches deep. (The included USB cable, however, should not be submerged.) Drainage holes dispersed throughout make for quicker drip drying too.

The full-size keyboard sports a slim profile and kinda nifty black-and-white design. Its standard layout includes F-keys and a number pad.

Muchas danke to Gadget Review.
