My (ordinary)mouse often will not move to the right. Sometimes will move; sometimes not.

I tried washing the mouse ball with soap; and vacuuming the mouse-pad. This helped a bit;
but it is still not right.

have you cleaned the wheel inside?

after removing the ball you'll notice 2 rollers inside , give those a clean too

I bet « Ravin » is right.

The gunge will usually push off with a match or cocktail stick........When all is clear again try a piece of fine cotton-y material stuck over a cheap mouse mat..... This absorbs the scruff and stops it transferring to the mouse ball and onwards.
