Was my first attempt at successfully cleaning a keyboard in a dishwasher a fluke? Well no, as it turns out.
Today’s candidate? A 2 year old HP branded keyboard. As the photo below shows, it was one grotty keyboard. This time around, I used the “FAST” dishwasher setting. When I took the keyboard out of the dishwasher, about a cupful (250ml) of water drained out. 3 days later, the keyboard was ready to use.
A note about the “FAST” mode
1 wash cycle (at 122ºF / 50ºC)
1 post rinse
1 final rinse (at 122ºF / 50ºC)
And I used 75% less dishwasher powder than I did with the first attempt.
