This stuff is awesome! Perfect for getting those truly hard to reach places. I love this for cleaning a keyboard. I have tried the high pressure air spray but many times it just blows it deeper into the cracks and crevices. This slime would pull all that gunk out with it!

  1. I find that using the vacuum with the crevice attachment does an awesome job, and cheaper, too.

  2. Never use a vacuum on your computer, vacuum has a lot of static electricity that can fry computer components.

  3. They sell this stuff on Amazon. Just type in cleaning gel under HOME AND GARDEN and it will pop-up. It is on sale today for 3.00 plus .99 shipping. I pinned it on my Pinterest account under Cleaning Aids. I also ‘Pinned’ a ‘Youtube’ video on how to make slime under Fun Stuff.

  4. Wow, someone has a case of the “I’m better than everyone.” Geez, she was just trying to help with a very plausible tip. She may not be as ‘smart’ as you, but I bet she’s a heck of a lot nicer…

  5. Thank you for the info, but perhaps you could respond to the woman in a nicer way? She was just trying to be helpful even if she might have been misinformed. I don’t think it is necessary to put her down while pointing out her mistake.

  6. Do not use a vacuum for the inside of your computer as it generates a lot of static electricity that can damage the internal components of your computer. There are specialized vacuum cleaners designed for cleaning out computers and electronic equipment but given the limited amount of use a single user would get from such a purchase it’s not a very wise one—they start at $300+ and can easily break the $1000 price barrier.

  7. Betty, I too am a computer tech. A couple of things you should know. A mini-vacuum is made differently from a regular vacuum. The mini-vac is MADE for computer use. The combination of the much lower vacuum and the type of plastic used minimizes static build up. The regular household vacuum and it’s higher airflow does not, especially using a crevasse tool. In addition using a household vacuum on the internals can risk vacuuming out part of the computer so I would not recommend it. Using it to clean keyboards is fine though. I have heard of people even putting a keyboard in a dishwasher with success though you have to make sure it is total dry afterwards and the dishwasher dry heat is turned off.

  8. Why are people compelled to be mean? All you have to do is let her know that it is ok to use a vacuum on a computer and explain why, if necessary… And let it go.

  9. When I see something on a DIY website – I expect to get a recipe on how to make it myself – not buy it!

  10. you can make this yourself just mix glue and a little water then in another bowl borax and water then put the glue mix in with the borax mix take goo out and there you go google cleaning goo you can make this stuff for like $1

  11. Well we can only share knowledge based off of what we have learned in our past.
    I have heard that vacuums are no good either but since I’m not a tech ill take your word for it. Its Good to know I can use something other than these blunt Q-tips… They never get everything lol

  12. Does not perform as the poster claims. Works, sort of. Professionally, we get better results by vacuuming the keyboard, then turning the unit face down and wiping with a slightly dampened microfiber towel.

    If you really want to try it, pick it up an Best Buy or Radio Shack for under $5.

  13. You can also make it with liquid starch, water and glue. It’s just “GAK”. There are tons of DIY’s out there for it

  14. Yes, I would like to know if it re-useable (biodegradable) ? and also if this company tests on animals, I do not buy products that do.

  15. First of all….how much does it cost for a professional cleaning? Some people are on very limited incomes and even an extra forty dollars makes a big difference. Second…..not everyone can get to the stores that you mentioned to buy this product and that’s why people check the DIY sites…..sometimes they use ingredients that people already have in their home…..saving them a trip to a store that is inconvenient to get to.

  16. The purchase and wearing of an anti static wrist strap will solve any problems of static damage while working or cleaning inside your computer.

  17. Order from Hong Kong and Thailand – pay for international taxes – no thanks – looks like a good product though

  18. If you read the reviews on the product on the amazon site, someone posted in the reviews how to make it. =)

  19. I make a slime for my nephew I bottle of elmer like glue fill It with water mix in seperate bowl mix 1tsp borax I cup of water til desolved then mix with glue keep mixing till solid there will be water left but take the solid out and there’s your slime

  20. That’s good to know about the keyboard and the dishwasher – during a party, a very stick drink was spilled on the keyboard and now about half the keys stick – no vacuum is going to get that out. :-) And if it doesn’t work – I can pick up a cheap one for $10 at Frys. Worth a try!

  21. Any vacuum cleaner that has a reverse airflow option can work just fine. Basically “Blow” all the cobwebs and dust out of your computer. Just be sure it is turned off and unplugged. No static issue. Problem solved. Now play nice and quit being mean to everyone.

  22. 1 tablespoons of white (Elmers) glue. Add about 1 spoon full of water. Mix. Then in another cup put 2 tablespoons of borax and 2 tablespoons of water. Pour the glue solution and the borax solution together and you get slime. Add some food color to the glue first if you want a cool color.

  23. Another way to clean a keyboard is by taking it apart.. I spilled a soda on mine.. keys were sticky so I took it apart.. 14 screws on the bottom ( im sure different keyboards have a different amount of screws ) .. wiped the board with a damp cloth.. rinsed the keys with warm water.. let it dry and put it back together..looks and types like it is new again.. there was ALOT of dust and who knows what else on the board inside when I took it apart…

  24. Thank you :).

    I use the pick side of a floss-pick to clean out my keyboard. In most cases it’s just wide enough to fit between the keys. I then drag the dust, etc. to a corner and tip the keyboard.

    I also bought a keyboard vac at the dollar store so all is not lost.

    If it actually needs a wet cleaning Q-Tips and rubbing alcohol (for the quicker drying time) work great too.

  25. They are wrong anyways. Using a Vacuum on a computer or keyboard will fo nothing even if there is static. There is no way for enough charge to be made to hurt a computer. Clearly someone young who has never wipes a computer screen and heard the static wipe away while cleaning off the monitor.

  26. I don’t know if they would sell it where you are but here is a simple recipe if you can find the ingredients.

    1 tablespoons of white glue. Add about 1 spoon full of water. Mix.
    Then in another cup put 2 tablespoons of borax and 2 tablespoons of water.
    Pour the glue solution and the borax solution together mix together until they are damp, not dripping wet anymore. and you get slime. You can add some food color to the glue mixture if you want a color.

  27. Sandy, I’ve done the same thing many times with no bad results. Now that I see so many professionals on here telling me not to, then I’ll stop. I have a Rainbow vacuum cleaner and it has a very small attachment that I used. Sandy, Merry Christmas. Happy New Year and may you always have good luck in all your endeavors whatever they may be. :) :3 <3 :) :3 <3

  28. Debbie, it’s stated that it’s reusable. How would you recommend storing it and does it quit working after you have used it? Is it obvious that I need to replace it? Thank you and Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  29. Putting your keyboard in the dishwasher works!! Our school district goes through all the computer labs in each building, and cleans them that way. Just make sure they are totally dry. :-)

  30. Borax is biodegradable, and cheap. I live about 5 miles from the mine, it can be used for all kinds of things. Its in our water supply, my clothes come our cleaner than any soap has ever done. And my skin looks better than when I wad younger. You can find it in the laundry soap isle at most stores.

  31. Who was mean? Did I miss something..I just see a useful response, nothing nasty about it. Unless a comment was deleted all I see is a warning it may not be a good idea to vaccum.. You cannot always read connotation in a simple text statement, why is everyone all in an uproar? I must have missed something somewhere.

    Anyway, thanks for all the tips!

  32. I don’t think you were rude or out of line at all! You were actually being informative and helpful.just because you didnt sugar coat anything and got straight to the point does not mean you were in anyway “rude”. Thank you for your knowledgable advice, it is appreciated here!

  33. You can by borax in the laundry store isle of any grocery store. I have made this with my cubbies and it is pretty cool.

  34. For fun my scouts put glow in the dark paint in the slime they made. It turned out pretty cool, And yes even the homemade stuff will attract a bunch of dirt.

  35. You’ll Need:
    2 tablespoons of white School glue (such as Elmers)
    1 Tbs water

    4 Tbs Borax
    4 Tbs Water

    In a small dish combine the school glue and 1 Tbs of water, mixing well. In another small bowl

    combine 4 Tbs Borax and 4 Tbs Water, mixing well until the borax dissolves.

    Combine the ingredients from both bowls and immediately stir well, creating awesome cleaning

    slime. If you want Colored slime, you can add a drop or two of food coloring to the water in the

    “glue” dish prior to mixing.

    Play with the slime until it’s no longer wet, You don’t want it to be dripping, you want it to just

    feel “damp”. This process is great for the kids, let them handle it with clean dry hands, until it no

    longer feels gritty and is nice and smooth and very lightly damp. At this point, if you place it on a

    piece of paper for about 10 seconds, it won’t leave a spot or residue.

    To use, apply it to your keyboard or vents, then gently pull off.
