While you’d think your bathroom was the number one source of germs, over the years numerous studies have shown that your handheld electronics probably holds more bacteria than your toilet seat.

Thanks to the new Screen Time feature on iPhones we can all keep track of the hundreds of times we pick up our phone each day, as well as the hours we spend scrolling.

Every time we use an electronic device, whether a work laptop, tablet or phone it gives microorganisms the opportunity to move from your fingers to the device.

Want to know how you can get rid of the bacterial build-up?

You can use gadget-friendly sanitiser wipes to keep your devices clean, but you’ll probably find they won’t reach every nook and cranny. That’s where Cyber Clean’s ‘cleaning gum’ comes in.

The Keyboard Cleaner ColorCoral Cleaning Gel is a revolutionary high-tech, cleaning compound that is not only reusable but can get into cracks and crevices (like in between the keyboard and into USB ports) without leaving any residue behind.

Here's why it's our latest home office must-have.

Why we rate it:

The product, which has over 3,000 ratings on Amazon, cleans your devices and leaves a fresh, citrus scent in its wake.

Although the gel won’t remove stains from your devices, it will remove dust, dirt and most bacteria.

It’s ideal if you’re sharing devices with others or just if you’re bored of finding crumbs all over your space bar.

And it's not just your laptop that it can clean, it can also be used for car interiors, remote controls, desks, printers, cameras, phones - you name it.

Clean-conscious customers have left thousands of glowing reviews on the shopping site, imploring others to buy the affordable product.

What the reviews say:

  • "This product is great for WFH keyboards that are looking a bit tired. Super easy to use and a little addictive once the cleaning results appear. Would recommend a pot of this for your cleaning cupboard."

  • "A very useful product. I use it to clean my phone handsets & remote controls. Gets the dust & dirt out from around the buttons."

  • "A great little item. I've only used it to clean my car dashboard so far, but it worked really well and I'm impressed with it. It got the dust out of the vents and didn't leave any streaks anywhere."

  • "Picks up grime really well though, first time I used it the stuff practically got covered in dust and lint. Nice little tool."
