If you’re anything like us, your computer is covered with disgusting heaps of lint, dust, dirt, chip crumbles and rainbow sprinkles. You could blow on it or use compressed air — or you could use this gorgeous bristly brush.
The Redecker brush was originally designed in 1992 by a German company that has been making natural bristle brushes since 1937 — but now the Museum of Modern Art will sell you one for 35 bones.
What Is It?
A brush that will wipe crumbs and crud off your computer keyboard and screen.
Who’s it For?
Humans with a normal human tendency to dirty their computers.
Handsome and rugged, just like you and your computer. The oiled beech handle has a soft set of screen-friendly bristles and a stiff tuft for the keyboard and crevices.
Brush your computer. Debris will fly off it, as if compelled by the will of a divine entity.
The Best Part
It works. It’s eco-friendly — compressed air cans are wasteful! It looks classier on a desk than a big, dumb can.
It’d be nice if the tough bristles were even tougher for extra dirt-scrapin’ action.
This Is Weird…
The handle comes with a hole but no strap. Why isn’t there an optional strap made of fine leather so we can hang it from a peg?
Should You Buy It?
If your computer is often in need of a good dry scrubbing, and you want to feel like a 19th century dandy, absolutely. This brush will last longer than your next two laptops.
Available at the MoMA Store this Friday.
