Lindy Wet Wipes
Advantages: Good results, simple dispensing and use of the wipes, adeqately damp to remove dirt.
Disadvantages: A little pricey.
I wouldn't say I am OCD when it comes to cleanliness, but I like to keep on top of bacteria and have a working environment that both looks and feels clean. Computer equipment can often be neglected with regards to cleaning, it also holds some real breeding grounds when it comes to germs. If there a few people in your household using the same mouse and the same keyboard then such things can get forgotten about and left for someone else to do. Germs can be left on the keyboard, such as if you forget to wash your hands after using the bathroom, or coughing at the desk can spread germs also.
We have established that computer accessories can harbor bacteria and so giving your keyboard a thorough clean now and again is quite important. I always like to keep some of these Lindy Wet Wipes to hand for an occassional wipe down of the keyboard and mouse. These wet wipes are a general use wet wipe and can be used around the house and not just at the computer desk.
The packaging is quite simple, coming in a cylindrical container with a typical flip lid to access the wipes which are dispensed through a narrow space at the top of the container. The label is also quite basic, offering an image of a computer screen to give you an idea of how the wipes can be used, and the Lindy branding and product name also present.
The wipes themselves are of a reasonable size, but there thickness isn't anything to get excited about. I don't find myself putting my fingers through the wipes whilst using them, but they could be a little thicker and stronger. The container houses 100 wipes and costs around £4, so they are not cheap by any means. I think the price is a little on the high side, but this is to be expected. The wipes are not 'too' moist, but they do allow me to tackle stubborn marks on the laptop or PC screen and the end result is always to a high standard. As the wipes are not dripping wet they give me the confidence to use them on all my computer essentials such as mouse and keyboard, as I know they are not going to damage the internals. These wipes produce their best results on monitors, though, as they leave a sparkly clean and smear-free finish.
I much prefer the Lindy Wet Wipes than using a duster or damp cloth to clean my monitor with. Their versatility stretches to the entire laptop housing and also my workspace (desktop, lamp, printer). Their simplicity lends itself well to my lazy nature, and the end result is a clean workstation that is free from potentially harmful bacteria.
Although there isn't a great deal to say about a wet wipe I feel there are a number of positives to take from the purchase of the Lindy Wet Wipes. Firstly, I will definately continue to use these wipes due to their simple use and adequate dampness. Secondly i think the packaging is well designed, with a sealed lid which prevents unused wipes from drying out. Finally I find that the end results are satisfying and make the purchase of the Lindy Wet Wipes a must, especially for those sharing desks either at home or work.
Summary: On balance a worthwhile product for keeping your workspace clean and germ free.
