Which is cleaner, your keyboard or your toilet seat? Let's hope your keyboard, but just in case, we'll show you how to safely clean and disinfect your keyboard.
Disconnect your keyboard from the computer. If you have wireless it is very easy to just turn off the unit.
You can use a aerosol can of compressed air to blow the dirt off, or a new dry paint brush to brush any crumbs. Its a good idea to turn the keyboard upside down and shake it to work the crumbs out of the inside.
I use a dampened sponge with diluted Simple Green on it to lightly rub the keys off. A dampened new paint brush can work between the keys. Be careful of using too much water as that will short it out..
Plug the keyboard back into the computer or turn the wireless power back on.

Here is a web search I did about Hydrogen Peroxide cleaners killing the new virus. It is very similar to the cat virus:
Here is a news report about the norovirus:
Dr Mercola says
The norovirus can live on hard surfaces for weeks. Hand sanitizers do not work with this, so wash your hands constantly. Drink lots of water.

There have been some cleaning recipes for cleaning showers. This is my version
1 part Dawn dish detergent *
1 part Water
2 parts Vinegar
Mix into a spray bottle.
Add some Hydrogen Peroxide if you would like to kill germs
( Add the Soap last so the bubbles don't fill the bottle first.)
* - or use Dr Bronners Soap - available at Target

This is O'Keefe's Working Hands for Dry hands.
It seems to work the best for my extremely dry hands damaged from cleaning so much. I found it at a True Value Store for about $8.00.
It seems to not be greasy.
Not all cloths are equal
The light blue cloth I bought at BJ's. It is 80% polyester and has an excellent what I call "drag" or grabbing when used wet. You can also find these at Walmart in the car section, though not as cheap. Walmart is about 5 for $5.00, BJ's is 25 for a pack of 25, (last time I checked).
The dark blue cloth is 100% polyester that I found at a dollar store. It is only useful for dusting, no "grab" at all!!
Do not you dryer sheets, softener, or bleach on any of these.
