For this project, you will need to find a simple way to clean your mousepad so that it looks/works better.
While it is true that doing something as mundane as cleaning your mouse pad comes second only to taking the trash out on your list of things you never want to do.
Don’t Ruin your Game BTW
It’s also true that having a dirty (or grimy) mouse pad can ruin your gaming session or make it frustratingly uncomfortable to use your computer. Although, if you are fed up with using the same one then buy a new one from my mouse pad collection.
Fortunately, you don’t have to spend a lot of time getting your mousepad spick and span. With a minimum amount of time and effort you can return your mousepad to its former glory.
Harmful Instead Of New
Most people think that they need to scrub their mouse pad until it looks like new. When in actuality, this is usually more harmful than helpful and not necessary at all. Taking the extra steps will only lengthen the time it takes and make your mousepad appear dirtier than before.
Use Soap & Water
Most of the time, all you need to clean a mouse pad is some simple soap and water or rubbing alcohol (if it gets really dirty). If your mouse pad has an anti-slip rubber base, then scrubbing will only take off what’s left of the grippers on the bottom.
Try Warm Water to Clean A Mouse Pad
A lot of the times, all you have to do is get some warm water and soak it up with a paper towel. After that just scrub it off while it’s still wet – this should save your mouse pad from more harm then good.
Cotton Balls May Help
If your rubber base on your mousepad is wearing out then try using rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball. It will help rejuvenate the grippers on the bottom and make it feel as good as new again.
Clean Products – But in other Manner
It’s also a good idea to occasionally clean your mousepad with a disinfecting wipe or alcohol or other cleaning products for more thorough removal of surface grime.
In some cases, you may need to use some sort of light abrasive, such as baking soda or toothpaste, to clean off stubborn stains. Just be sure not to scrub too hard – you don’t want to wear your mousepad down so thin that it tears.
Found These Holes
The easiest way that I found is to use dish soap and warm water. This combination will kill the germs and bacteria, as well as get rid of any stains or dirt on your mouse pad. It’s also worth noting that if you do not have time for a full wash cycle, try using some wet wipes.
Test Your Screwdriver
When cleaning the mouse pad, be sure to take it apart. You can do this by using a screwdriver to unscrew the plate portion of your mousepad. Next, you want to put it in some warm water and dish soap for about an hour or so. To get rid of any stains on your mousepad, try giving it a gently scrub using a damp sponge. After you’ve done this, it’s time to reassemble the mousepad and put the plate back onto it.
If your mouse pad is made out of cloth or fabric (such as Razer), be sure that when you clean it, you avoid washing it in hot water and that you only use gentle detergents. Do not put your mouse pad in a regular laundry cycle as this may destroy the fabric and cause the edges to fray.
After you’ve cleaned it, simply let it dry. You can speed up this process by using a hairdryer on low setting or just leaving it out in the sun for a day or two.
