In what sounds very much like an idea spawned after a lengthy spell of indoctrination by the How Clean Is Your House ladies, some bright spark has come up with a way of quickly and efficiently removing all the nasty gunk from your PC keyboard. Cyber Clean is a tub of vibrant yellow putty that you push between the keys and that fastens on to the gunk that lies beneath.

It can also be used to give an instant clean to other office items you're likely to have spilled your coffee over or strewn with crumbs. Its makers claim it can get rid of up to 80 percent of germs and is antibacterial.

Available from Firebox for £7.95, Cyber Clean changes colour once it has become too grubby for further use and needs to be replaced.
