NEWARK, Calif., Aug. 22 (UPI) -- U.S. computer peripheral maker Logitech says its newest keyboard is a boon for those who suffer spilled coffee accidents, because it's completely washable.

The Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 can stand anything from a light dusting to a rinse in the kitchen sink, the company said in a release Wednesday.

The keyboard can be hand washed repeatedly and can even be submerged -- with the exception of the USB cable -- in up to 11 inches of water, Logitech said.

Drainage holes at the back of the keyboard allow for easy drying while key characters are laser printed and UV coated to ensure the letters don't fade in the wash.

"We've all experienced that moment of distraction -- followed by panic, when a cup of coffee or a soda spills all over your keyboard," Sophie Le Guen, senior director of mice and keyboards at Logitech said.

"Because life and its messes will happen, regardless of how careful you are, Logitech designed the Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 to look and function like new, even over time," she said.

The suggested retail price is $39.99.
