The tools we snagged:
- Cotton swabs
- Hair clips
- Bobby pins
The cotton swabs and tweezers are great for cleaning. We use the cotton swabs with a tiny bit of isopropyl alcohol to clean between the keys on the laptop. Tweezers are great for snagging tiny crumbs before they can get into the fan or under the keys. Fine pointed tweezers also work well for getting debris out from underneath the keys without having to remove the key.
The hair clips are very useful when it comes to cable management. We have a few cables that are just a teeny bit too long that like to wander and the clips are perfect for shortening the cable and getting it to stay put. Bobby pins are also handy for simple wire management and we often use them to keep our headphone cable untangled.
What are some unconventional tools you use to keep your laptop and workspace tidy?
