If you’re worried about an imminent comedown after a summer full of celebration, joy and benign national pride, you needn’t be – because an new national event is upon us to ease us into Autumn.

Yes, September is Computer Cleaning Month, an initiative by Durable to draw your attention to the filth magnet that is your computer workstation and the means by which to clean it.

Us office workers bring dirt off the street and public transport and tend to sit straight off at our computers without washing our hands. Nine in ten of us eat lunch at our desks, meaning that keyboards collect crumbs and other food particles, in addition to skin and other bodily bits and pieces. Three-quarters of us have dirty monitors which can cause headaches, nausea and other complications. We leave saliva and lipstick on shared telephones, spreading illness around the office… The list goes on.

The Computer Cleaning Month Website provides advice on how to clean your workstation, including specific tips on cleaning your monitor, keyboard, mouse and telephone. And you can buy your computer cleaning products from your award-winning office supplies dealer, Paperstone.
