There's no need to get a new eraser if there's a dirty one around — just rub it on the carpet or a pair of denim jeans to give it back some life. Once your eraser is ready to go, it's ready to buff out the dirt on laptops without using chemicals or applying other products. You can also use it to clean your computer keyboard (for times when an old mascara wand isn't what you're looking for).
The eraser does more than just eliminate dirt on your keyboard: it can be applied to memory cards, game cartridges and more. Unpluggd has a list of several tech objects which you can use your armed trusty eraser on. It's great for light polishing on your gadgets, but if you're looking for more in-depth cleaning of your electronics, check out our recent guide.
