I was browsing through Amazon.com the other day when I came across the Cyber Clean electronic cleaning putty. This high-tech cleaning compound was designed to clean all sorts of things but is most ideal for electronic devices such as cellphones, laptops, computer keyboards, printers, etc. from dust, dirt, grime and other stuff stuck on those gadgets. I’ve seen it advertised and reviewed on other blogs before but I haven’t had the chance to use it so I decided to get one and try it out for myself. Got it for $7 + free shipping and received the package within two days.
The unit I purchased came in a 145-gram resealable plastic tub/container. It didn’t come with any instruction manual but it does have some basic instructions written on the label. The putty itself is yellow-green colored and has a soft jelly-like texture. I tried it out as soon as I got it and used it to clean my laptop keyboard, USB ports and other peripheral ports.
The Cyber Clean putty was able to take out a lot of the dust and grime with ease. The best way to use the putty is to push it between the nooks and crannies slowly, kneading bit by bit and then slowly removing it. If you take it out quickly the dirt may not stick properly and stay in place. It could also cause small pieces of the putty to break off and get stuck. When that happens, just bring the big piece of putty back to the area, press down to make the small piece stick and lift slowly.
Although it doesn’t remove 100% of the dust, dirt and grime, overall I’m happy and satisfied with the Cyber Clean electronics cleaning putty. It’s fast, simple and easy to use, it’s reusable, biodegradable and doesn’t leave residues and best of all, it eliminates 99.999% of germs. I prefer using it over those canned air dusters because it traps the dirt like a magnet and doesn’t blow it away.
NOTE: Make sure that you keep the Cyber Clean cleaning putty away from direct sunlight or warm temperature. The putty is sensitive and exposing it to warm temperatures could cause it to lose its consistency.
