I have had this white keyboard for 3 days and it's now virtually grey. I was reading a newspaper and then checked my email. Within seconds, it was a disaster.

I've tried Windex and Fantastic and niether has fully removed the black prints off the white keys. Anyone have advice?!?!

You could try "Goo Gone" it's availbe Canadian Tire, Wal-mart, Safeway and most other big box stores.

The stuff is awesome!

I couldn't stand this so I left to go try something. Mr Clean Magic Eraser is AMAZING!!! Totally solved all fingerprint issues. Maybe BestBuy should pick one up!

That eraser is one of the few products that actually lives up to it's name. It amazed me too.

Get another keyboard...I would think that your life and time is too important to be spent "erasing" your keyboard every few days. :mad:

Or you could just wash your hands after you read the newspaper. I don't think that's asking a whole lot, nor classified as too much work.

I read two newspapers a day and I always wash my hands afterwards. Without thinking (and coming from the black keyboards I've always used,) I checked the email and realized my error afterwards. Never again.

The eraser worked instantly and I doubt that this keyboard will ever get that grey/black again. It's good to know that there's a cheap, easy fix out there.
