Dried up and worthless
by A Stout Brew (1 out of 5 stars)
January 10, 2018

Product was received dried up (dramatic loss of original volume) and thus, worthless. I have used Cyber Clean for years and have purchased the product in several sizes (including this size and type of container). The material should take up most of the volume of the container. See pictures showing small amount contained inside.

See third picture of material next to container. Two points here:
1) This material should not physically stand straight up on its own. This stuff is supposed to ooze its way into small crevasses. The material I received could be bounced off the ground.
2) The "Strength Meter" section of the label is not a volume indicator. The volume of the material does not determine when to replace it - the color does. Where it says "Maximum cleaning capacity" above "Replace Cyber Clean", separated by a dotted line - there is a notch cut out of the label. You are supposed to compared the material inside the container to the dirty-yellow-green square below the notch. When the color of the material reaches the color shown, it is time to replace the material with fresh Cyber Clean.

Cyber Clean is a fantastic material - when it arrives if fresh condition and not evaporated out and shriveled up. Apparently, this vendor does not have an effective quality control system.

Gak is Back!!
by David R. Keller (5 out of 5 stars)
October 3, 2017

It's Gak. If you grew up in the early 90s you'll know what that means. If not, it's basically a slimy ball of goop. This stuff does work though. I don't know if Gak cleaned well but this stuff truly does. It takes a bit of working the blob onto the dirty area, but I used it to clean up my keyboard, a few fan ports and a hard to clean spot in on of my old PC cases. It cleaned up about 5 years worth of neglect in a few seconds. It's like Gak but with cleaner added in and you can really smell it. It has a cleaner/lemony scent. It's recommended that you wash your hands after using and you really should. It slightly irritated the skin on the back of my hand in one very small spot. Which went away immediately after washing my hands. It works great for cleaning fan ports and keyboards. I'm very happy with it. I was just recently thinking to myself that my keyboard was filthy. Glad I bought this.

Cleaned the INSIDE of my computer with it.
by Kindle Customer (2 out of 5 stars)
September 23, 2018

Like everyone else, I used cans and cans of air to clean the inside of my computer tower. I found this stuff and for a few months I used it like a stress ball. LOL (true). One day I got tired of the loud noise my computer was making so I opened it up and used the Cyber Clean on the tower. It sinks into tiny spots and cleaned the heat sinks and fans squeaky clean. The wiring on the inside is clean as well. I opened up the stoppers on the fan and oiled them and put everything back together and guess what... no more annoying noise.

I know you think the fans was my issue but that's not exactly true. You gotta keep the tower clean to keep all the fans c;lean. Anyway, its great stuff. No its not terribly sticky but being stickier would not be helpful.

I just ordered more.

Update: After I ordered my second cup of this cyber Clean, I checked the price of it because a few of my friends wanted to order some and instead of doing their own research, I did it for them. The price had about doubled. I see that it has dropped by a little change but I'm not really liking the business practices of this company. I won't be buying from them again. I like to know that I can tap into a supply and get a favorite product for a price very near what I had previously paid. Yeah. I understand supply and demand but this is more like gouging.

Don't buy Cyber Clean from Gogo Deals
by Paulbo (1 out of 5 stars)
October 24, 2017

This SHOULD be a review of Cyber Clean, which is a great product, but is instead a review of the seller, Gogo Deals. They have apparently had their stock of Cyber Clean on the shelf for several years because when I just opened my package the level of product was well below the "Replace Cyber Clean" mark on the side of the bottle. The weight of product (listed as 5.11 oz on the package) is only 2.0 oz ... and if you include the weight of the package as well, it's still only 3.4 oz.

No questions asked when I called Amazon customer service about getting a refund (no returns to Gogo Deals). So I'll be ordering this again from another vendor.

On to Cyber Clean - it's great stuff, it does exactly what the manufacturer claims. In fact I bought this package of it to replace one I've had for several years that had dried out to the point of being below the "replace" line.

Overpriced silly putty
by Autumnn Garland (1 out of 5 stars)
July 18, 2017

So disappointed in this product. It arrived half full but I disregarded this because I assumed I could still use it on my work keyboard. I bought the product specifically for this purpose. Pressed the product, which was room temperature, onto my keyboard several times in an attempt to get it to adhere and pull the dirt/debris out. It did not at all. I finally resorted to kind of dragging the putty back and forth in the crevices of my keyboard, which helped get a little of the dirt out. I honestly feel I could have got better/equal results using a Swiffer. I ordered this with a few other items and for some reason I thought I paid around $5.00 for it. When I came to write this review was shocked, and very disappointed in myself, that I paid $12.99 for this. Definitely not worth it.

by Glenn Ballenger (3 out of 5 stars)
May 12, 2017

I bought this stuff way before they featured it on GMM, but even then, its only OK at best. It works to clean stuff up out of your keyboard, but sometimes little chunkies can get stuck in your keyboard and it can easily miss most crud on or under your keys. The best way to use it to it's full potential is to remove all your key caps first, and then go in to use it. Might be a pain to remove every key cap, unless you have a remover tool, but after you do, this thing gets another star from I don't like it to ok. The reason is, is that the longevity of it depends on how much you use it and where you store it. Keep it somewhere out of the sun as that will dry it up quickly over time. The more you use it, the more junk is going to be floating inside what was once some nice goo. This one particularly is for cleaning, but it can be fun to play with too... Compressed air still rules the keyboard cleaning game.

The people complaining about this stuff either never bought it ...
by R. Freeman (5 out of 5 stars)
March 17, 2015

The people complaining about this stuff either never bought it or didn't follow the instructions. I have, as most office workers do, a second hand keyboard (I inherited it from whoever IT took it from when they delivered my workstation - it was NOT new). The admin and I had bought every cleaner wipe, swab, and can of cleaning stuff that the local office supply would send us - none of it got this thing clean. Thirty seconds after opening the jar, my keyboard is clean (at least the top half) and the goo is ready for more. No, it doesn't get under the keys - do you expect the wipes to? No, it won't clean off the soda residue. Pressing it in between the keys will make it clean as far as you can press it. That's it. But when you are looking to clear the accumulated gunk off of a keyboard and make it usable and sanitary, this is the stuff for you. Next stop, my laptop keys.

Cleaned up an old synth
by R. Beach (4 out of 5 stars)
October 25, 2014

I have an old analog synthesizer from the 1980's. All of its sliders are knobs are crackly and intermittent due to decades of dust and smoke particulate that got down in where traditional cleaning couldn't reach. Some of the pushbuttons on it would stick or not make contact. I mushed the cyber clean down into all the cracks and crevices and was impressed by how much dirt it pulled out. I was a little nervous about using it on a vintage piece of gear, fearful that some of it may break off down inside, but that did not happen. The synthesizer works much better now. The only drawback is that after only one use, it is the color that indicates it is time to be replaced, but to be fair, there was 30 years worth of grime for it to contend with.

Kind of like Silly Putty but better smelling
by Will O. (4 out of 5 stars)
October 1, 2011

I admit it. I'm a keyboard slob. No matter how well intentioned and careful I think I'm being, one day, I'll look down at my keyboard and realize that it could probably feed a family of 10 (roaches) for at least a month. I spend many hours on my computer at home and at work, and I tend to eat at my desk which of course means that the keyboard gets at least some of the crumbs, ketchup, mustard, etc. Canned air wasn't really doing the job and when I happened across this cleaning compound and read what it does I thought "what a ridiculously overpriced hyped up product" and then promptly bought 2 of them. (I tend to be a bit of a compulsive buyer at times)

My at home keyboard gets less abuse then the one at work so I tried it on the at home keyboard first. It took me a few tries to figure out how much pressure to put on the compound and how to spread it out over an area of the keyboard and kind of knead it in in order to get the best results. It definitely pulled stuff out from between the keys but the narrower the space the harder it is to get the compound into the space so it doesn't get everything. When I was done, the bright yellow had only darkened slightly. The keyboard was shinier and had noticeably less stuff showing between the keys.

I had inherited a keyboard with my desktop computer at work. Prior owner had evidently thought that cleaning keyboards was just a fantasy concept cooked up by fantasy writers because it appeared that there had been no time wasted on that pipe dream. When they gave me the computer and keyboard I took one look at the keyboard and bought a wireless keyboard and mouse off of Amazon and shoved the old keyboard in a drawer.

So, I pulled out the other new container of compound figuring that the old keyboard would be an ideal test of the compounds abilities. A couple of things I noticed. The longer I used the compound the softer it became, presumably from body heat. I had to go over the keyboard several times because the more it pulled out the more other stuff started coming loose and so I'd have to go over areas several times to get things out of it. At one point the compound had softened enough that when I began to pull the compound up from the keyboard it left a few strands behind that I had to use tweezers to pull out. The second thing was that after I cleaned the keyboard (which looked considerably better but still had things stuck under the keys that weren't moving) the compound had turned slightly green. One of my co-workers came in and I was explaining what I was doing and she asked if I wasn't grossed about about handling the compound with all of the hair and other junk it had pulled out. Being a guy, of course not... however, no matter how many times you fold this stuff over it's going to be really obvious what it's pulled out. It took me about 30 minutes on the old keyboard and I don't think the compound is going to last through more than one more cleaning so that's the downside. The upside is that I have a much cleaner keyboard stuffed in a drawer in case I need a spare.

Fantastic for what its meant for; a few tips...
by PinkTheSink (5 out of 5 stars)
December 3, 2010

I use cyberclean to get dirt and "gunk" out of a multitude of things. Its great for cleaning cellphones and the tiny microphones, mesh speakers, 3.5mm audio jack, and usb/connectivity ports they have. I also use it in my car when cleaning. It gets grime out of the leather seams/stitching in the seats. It will last quite a while; the smaller pouch I bought before this one, lasted well over a year.

The trick to getting the most out of it is to push it in to the crevice slowly, knead it a little bit, and remove it slowly. If you pull fast and it's spread in a tight area it will break off. Not much to worry about if it happens, just press a big piece into the area, lift slowly and the rest will come out.

Also, dont use it when its cold. Room temp is fine, but if you leave it in your car on cold night it will be too dense to work with.
