Heavy smokers get a nice tar layer, some men dont clean up after themselves when they are 'finished', some people like to eat sticky food when using the computer and don't clean up after themselves. Don't get me wrong, most of the computers come in fairly clean...but some people make it very hard not to hit them in their face. Especially if its a nice computer. We posted a rule that the "computer will be wiped down prior to intake upon request, by the customer" we gave them clorox wipes and tell them to go to town. Some people get so embarrassed they leave with the computer (happens alot if there is a line of people behind them). Who says peer pressure isn't a good thing.

I don't know about that. Antibiotic method of action and denaturation are way too different. There'd need to be a drastic change to create a silver resistant bacteria, just like there's no practical way for ethanol resistance to happen.

Re-reminds me the alternate reasons I keep a bottle of 91% Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol in the cabinet at work. All the nasty laptops get a nice cleaning of their KBs and touchpads beforehand. Also of course there for cleaning TIM off chips on the occasional instances we need to.

Clorox disinfecting wipes are your friend...all my customers used to thank me for how clean they are when returned. I always would say that it is just something we do as a courtesy to them...right to them.


Never had that issue come up. *shudders*

From there you are down to the following:
1) ones you can clean disinfect(which you just use).
2) ones you try to clean but it just smears (*dry heave*) and you wear gloves / designate a USB/PS2 adapter for because they are paying so much money.
3) ones you tell the customer are not repairable because you are not touching it even with a hazmat suit on (or tell them to 'send it in' for repair)

On topic, this is great for tablets and phones. I hope this makes it into everything.


Heh, try working IT in a call center that has been operating for 10 years. Some keyboards/mice have seen dozens of people. Some more clean than others, and others... well, let's just say that I once saw a guy leave the bathroom stall, pick up his bowl of food from the counter, and proceed to eat a spoonful. Notice how I left out the bit where he washed his hands? Yeah, he didn't. Some people are just straight up gross.

Its funny you mention that, I went from computer repair to IT...needless to say...I brought my clorox with me. Deep cleaned by desk/cubicle before I started working the first day (the previous tenant used an absurd amount of lotion on their hands...it needed some rubbing alcohol to get that ground in residue off of it). And if my stuff appears to be used during vacation I clean it again.

On task, if you keep your hands clean these new screens should be sufficient to take care of the rest.
