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.

Before aka Furry Keys

After aka Clean Keys.

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.
