    I use monitor wipe and my nails (to get in the cracks). It will remove everything, I swear!

    PS: Use a microfiber cloth after the monitor wipe.

    Using something like a knife (butter knife) will work as well.

    Compresed air. I allways have some sprays to use under my desk for fast air clean. If this wont take out everything some vaccum or paper works. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Vacuum, air compressor combo depending on where I'm cleaning and how precise it needs to be.

    DO NOT VACUUM ELECTRONICS!!

    It creates static, and can damage your device. This is true of all electronics, including your computer.

    If you want to use airflow to clean your device, use canned air, or the OUTPUT of a shopvac or something to blow the dust/debris away.

    For crap that's caked on, en electric toothbrush works wonders. You can get them for like $4.00

    When an electric toothbrush is no longer suitable to brush your teeth, instead of throwing it away, throw it in your toolbox - they are super handy for this kind of thing.

    Is it necessary to be electric toothbrush? Why can't we use normal one? ^^

    Any brush will work. Electric ones just work better - the vibrations they cause do a really good job loosening gunk, and you can clean a small area by just pressing the brush against it, where normal brushes need to be moved back and forth, which requires more space.

    For how cheap electric brushes have become, there's not a whole lot of reason not to use those over the regular ones though - the difference is a couple bucks.

    That goes for you mouth as well as your electronics. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Yeah but it`s dangerous only when the pipe is long like in the air compressors.

    i use a toothpick/the pick end of a floss to get in the cracks and get out that gross skin.

    and fluff up the end of a Q-Tip and gently clean the lasers.

    then take my handy dandy microfibre cloth and give er a good ol' wipe down.

    do it to all my gear, least once a week.

    I won`t give number cause i don`t know them, but few months back i have run into this subject somewhere in the interwebz and someone said that it is true but that`s because the air is moving through long pipe that`s why canned air is safe to use.
    Pro tip: If you use canned compressed air and it`ll get cold, put it away, it works better warm.

    Last thing i want to say is if Linus can use compressor to clean his case there is nothing to be afraid of. (just take it slow)


    This article explains why you should never vacuum your gear. Though it`s about cleaning cases and not mices the only way i personally am using vacuum is holding it in the air while blowing air with the compressor into the case and catching the dust mid air with vacuum.
    It`s still up to individuals how they clean they gear.

    Compressed air and microfiber cloth works for me.

    Of course, I'm a lefty who uses his right hand for mousing, so I don't have food getting into my mouse. Your mileage may vary.
