Washable Keyboard



Silver Seal Washable Keyboard. Completely waterproof, this plug ‘n’ play keyboard works just like any other desktop keyboard, but thanks to a waterproofing process known as "Seal Shield" it is spill proof and fully washable. And it’s even dishwasher safe.

Quote by~Edgar Allan Poe
"Those who Dream by day are cognizant of
many things which escape those who dream.Only by night."

Facts

A spider's silk is stronger than steel.
The most powerful electric eel is found in the rivers of Brazil, Columbia, Venezuela, and Peru, and produces a shock of 400-650 volts.
No one knows how many people died during the sinking of the Titanic.
The U.S. motto, 'In God We Trust', was not adopted as the national slogan until 1956.

Tips
Lemons
For a mild, stain-free bleach, soak your delicates in a mixture of lemon juice and baking soda for at least half an hour before washing.
You can remove unsightly underarm stains from shirts and blouses simply by scrubbing them with a mixture of equal parts lemon juice (or white vinegar) and water.
To remove rust and mineral discolorations from cotton T-shirts and briefs, pour 1 cup lemon juice into the washer during the wash cycle.
To get rid of mildew on clothes, make a paste of lemon juice and salt and rub it on the affected area, then dry the clothes in sunlight. Repeat the process until the stain is gone. This works well for rust stains on clothes too.
Whiten clothes
Diluted or straight, lemon juice is a safe and effective fabric whitener when added to your wash water. Your clothes will also come out smelling lemon-fresh.

3/4 cup cake flour (not self-rising)

Into a bowl sift together flour, baking powder, and salt and whisk in 2 teaspoons zest. In another bowl with a fork blend butter, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon juice until smooth. With a wooden spoon beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until smooth. Stir butter mixture into flour mixture until batter is combined well. In a small bowl with a fork stir together cream cheese and remaining 1/2 teaspoon zest, 1 tablespoon sugar, and 1 teaspoon juice until lemon cream is smooth. Spoon 3 level tablespoons batter and about 1 tablespoon lemon cream into each paper liner. Spoon remaining batter over lemon cream, smoothing tops.

The local news did a piece about the washable keyboard. It seems to actually hold up after it has been in water!
