    I own a large goliathus mousemat, can i just throw it into the washing machine to clean it? Or must i send it for dry cleaning?

    Lmao. You WISH the Goliathus was machine washable. I think they'd put one of those care instructions tags on it, don't you? Haha.

    Just hand wash it. Mild detergent, dish soap, whatever you have with hot water. Scrub it with a cloth or a sponge. Rinse and hang it to dry.

    I would not trust dry clean chemicals or machine washing - the cloth surface is held to the foam underneath by adhesive that might break down if you're rough with it. If you really want to machine wash it, use the hand-wash cycle.

  4. Hmmm maybe it has cleaning instructions on the box? if you machine wash it or vigorously wash it with a brush it might loosen the fibers of the mouse

    Just dampen the mousemat and use soap or dish wash soap to clean it. I am pretty sure your mousemat surface would deteriorate if you machine wash it. Happened to my QCK so dont take any chances.

    What about a thin mousemat? I just bought a Kabuto and I'm afraid to wear it out

    Yeah this applies to thin mousepads more than thicker ones. Dont machine wash them, specially if they dont have stitched edges. The surface will not only deteriorate but the mat might fray too.

    I just put mine in the laundry machine and let the machine do the cleaning and prays that it wont rip my pad into pieces.

    If it were to be rip into piece well its a good excuse to buy a new one. But if I were to put it into the washing machine and the mosuepad would fray that would be a problem. A bit of an unsightly problem

    Well luckily the goliathus is a durable mousepad coz I've washed mine twice with that method and I don't see any fray on it. BUT I highly don't recommend my methods it's too risky lol

    There's no way that works, feeling the side where it is whipstiched together. That will absolutely tear. Not saying that once will do it for sure, but if you do it a few times, I'm sure it would. What is on it that needs washing so bad? I've had the extended and have never thought about washing it once.

    If your mouse mat just has dust, I'd just wipe it off with a microfiber cloth. DO NOT machine wash your mouse mat, it will mess up the surface.
