Cleaning Your Mouse with your Fingernail, the "Handywoman's Secret Weapon"

If duct tape is the “handyman’s secret weapon,” then the fingernail must be the “handywoman’s secret weapon.” I’ve used mine as a screwdriver, tweezers, scraper, and more.
Check out this tech tip… Unlike the previous tip about cleaning “e-dirt” from your computer, this one explains how to clean real dirt from your mouse with a fingernail. But not to worry all you fingernail-less folk, the tip of a small flathead screwdriver or a wooden manicure stick will also work.
I frequently have to do this with our public computers. It’s amazing how much gunk builds up in there.
