Logitech announced the new Logitech Washable Keyboard K-310. This is a keyboard that you simply put in the sink, wash under the tab and then leave it to dry, while you are doing something else.

Cleaning your keyboard is an essential activity, when looking at various studies that examined germs within office- and home-peripherals. A recent study found that the average keyboard contains more than 150 times the acceptable limit for bacteria and was five times as filthy as a toilet seat; to make it even worse: some keyboards were even considered a health hazard.

The Washable Keyboard K-310 is suitable for both home and office and is equipped with function keys, a numeric keypad and is compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. This Logitech periphal has twelve keys that provide direct access to media files, volume control, email, internet and other frequently used applications. There is no additional software needed for the K-310, making the Logitech Washable Keyboard easy to install and use.

The K-310 Keyboard is hand washable, can be submerged in up to 28 centimeters (which is approximately 11 inches) of water and drainage holes in the back of the keyboard ensure that this washable keyboard dries quickly after every wash.

The characters on the keyboard are laser-printed and a UV-coating is protecting the keys, to ensure that the characters don’t fade during the washing.
