    Well, I tried using alchohol, my deathstalker became somewhat sticky
    Same goes through the rubber grips on my deathadder

    Also, How Do I remove the fingerprint oil marks on my deathadder?
    My main concern is How to you clean the Detachable armrest from your VESPULA?

    ~Its my first post here on insider, hurray~
  2. I wipe most of my peripherals (Keyboard and mice) with alcohol swabs then wipe it with a damp cloth and after that a dry cloth.

    You should try and wipe the alcohol off with a wet cloth. It works for me but I'm using a Blackwidow Ultimate. So I don't really know bout the Deathstalker. Works well for my Ferox, Deathadder and Ouroboros too.

    Isopropyl usually just evaporates off and doesn't leave anything behind. So that and a toothbrush and toothpick.

    I pull out all the cap from my BlackWidow and a brush to clean it. The rest of the peripheral I only use face tissue to clean.

    I use a compressed air can to clean out my keyboard.
    Everything else is just with a damp cloth, works like a charm for me.

    Well i use a damp cloth (sometimes with alcohol but not to often!), or dust removal cloth or something like this for my Blackwidow keyboard. I recommend to everyone with mechanic keyboard clean it perfectly manually by removing all keycaps and use then some cloth with alcohol or something like that and then using a vacuum cleaner (dont know exactly the word in english) with a really small performance to not destroy the mechanism.

    For my mouse i use a damp cloth or alcohol for remove really all dust and so on.
    My mamba 2014 mouse is really nice and resistant for all chemical things.
    The dock of the mamba is not so resistant and you can easily see scratches there. so i use special microfiber cloth for this.

    My Kraken Pro headset i clean also with the microfiber cloth.

    My first pro tip is to clean hands often. You find very fast even if you are the cleanest person in the world that oils and sweet form "grime" in the crevices of keyboards and mice. Another contributing fact are those people that eat at their pcs (many do from meals to just snacking away).

    Anyways what I use on my mouse first is a scalpel, this is a nice thin tiny blade which allows me to get into the cracks of the mouse and remove any buildup of grime. Careful not to cut or scratch into the plastic you want to just slide it along so it removes any dirt. I then use things like AF foam cleaner or even a good screen cleaners to give the mouse a good clean all over makes it look like new

    For the keyboard I actually sit for an hour or so and remove every single key and again using a foam cleaner (PC grade foam cleaner) and some big cloths I clean each key individually. I then use some compressed air to blow out the underneath of the key it is amazing how much gathers there crumbs, hairs, finger nails dust OMG its all there. Next I use a cotton swap or similar and normally more foam and just run it it around all the groves etc then using a cloth give it a good rub all over before re attaching all the keys. I am selling a razer mouse and keyboard so have recently done all the above and both products are like new but I would have been disgraced to have sold it with the included grime.
  8. Wet wipe (I don't think this is ideal) and microfiber cloth (I don't think this is ideal either).

    Personally I use compressed air for my blackwidow chroma and for the keys a type of damp cloth or towel.
    My Naga Epic is what concerns me the most about keeping it clean, the side number pad is a cul-de-sac of dead skin cells so I tend to take a really thin needle and drag it between the keys to scrape out the dead skin, and remove the side plating to clean the dead skin from there and wipe it off with a damp towel as well.

    Well, I took my New Razer Blade keys off... Never do that.... Yeah, I broke about six keys. But at least I have a clean laptop... This is more of not what to do...
