For many of us, eating at our desks is a regular occurrence. And while it may be very convenient, it can make our computers and other devices kind of gross. Luckily, Real Simple found an easy way to clean a keyboard with a common office supply.

Simply take a Post-It and run it between the keys. We suggest folding the sticky strip in half so it can collect any crumbs and dust that are lingering on both sides.

This is a very simply way to give your electronic a cleaning without taking up much of time. Plus, your co-workers will be totally impressed by this cool trick.
