Mouse seems to clog up more than it used to.
Any suggestions for cleaning the roller bars inside.....apart from chucking the mat into the bath.

Mananin (thanks in advance)

Get an optical mouse. No more cleaning, no need for a mouse mat, ...

Cocktail sticks.

The good old fashioned - finger nail - works a treat.

I take my mouse apart to give it a thorough clean, good job i know how it fits back together.

scrape the rollers with a matchstick or fingernail,remove with damp kitchen paper.wash the ball in sopy water and dry well.

Tried all those except stripping it, but thanks.
Maybe I'll add VoG's to my Wishlist.

Try not to put your pie on the mouse mat between bites.

I'm a fingernail kinda guy myself.

If you look on the bottom of your mouse you should see two small screws. If you un-do these you can take all three rollers out and clean them. Please take note of how the mouse is set-up inside before taking the rollers out. Just wipe them and the ball with a damp cloth. I have found this is the only sure way of having the rollers clean.

samsung Optical Mouse @ a tenner. Different branches have different offers but a couple of quid isn't much for the ease of use.
