Cleaning Your Mouse

Mice also get dirty. Usually the parts that get dirty are the rollers inside the mouse, which come in contact with the ball. Just as you did with your keyboard, reach for your bottle of alcohol. This time, instead of pouring the alcohol over the ball and rollers, you want to remove the ball and, using a cotton swab soaked with alcohol, clean the rollers of any build-up of dirt and grease, which can accumulate over time. The instructions that came with your mouse can explain how to open it and remove the ball. Usually, it is just a matter of sliding or twisting a panel holding the ball in place. Just make sure that you understand how to replace the ball before you remove it.

Again, just as with your keyboard, don't use common household cleaning products that can damage your mouse.
