    What up razer warriors, just have a quick question for you all...What mouse pad do you all have and when and how often do you guys clean/wash your mousepad?/do you even clean it at all?

    Might sound stupid, but I use regular clear office tape to remove any crumbs/dust/lint/dirt/etc... If you vacuum it you risk scratching the pad with the vacuum tip, so don't do that.
    For water stains from my cup of water I just use a damp cloth and wipe it gently so it doesn't scratch it. Just whatever you do, don't soak the mouse-pad in a bath/sink as this will almost certainly ruin it completely (the rubber will separate from the surface, learned this the hard way)
    I hope that helped, good luck! :D

    What if you just wash it under water? and not soak it? and when i mean soak i mean like drown it in water.

    I would not risk it to wash your mouse pad. could get wrong.
    I have the Firefly and the positive thing in hard mousepads is that yoiu can easily clean them.
    I mean i'm picky with my things and they don't get dirty so fast but i can easily celan it with a dust cloth.

    When mice start acting weird, I rub gently it with moist towel few times.
     
  6. Give it a bath. This sounds ridiculous, but it really works (and makes your mousepad smell good too!)

    Step 1: Put it in your sink or bathtub.
    Step 2: Put any kind of soap or shampoo over it, make sure you rub it in (you can use a sponge if you wish).
    Step 3: Wash out the soap with water.
    Step 4: Let it Dry.
    Why it works: It's like taking a shower. It gets rid of dead skin and particles you don't want on yourself (but in this case the mousepad).

    Watch this video if you would like a better description.

    I used Golathius CE, I usually throw them anywhere so the dust will fly too. Sounds funny but it works LOL.

    Don't put it in water... it might make your mousepad wrinkly
    Try wiping with a lightly wet cloth (no tissue paper or you will ruin your pad with lint)

    Well, it's been a few days i already washed it like last week i ran it under a tap water and poured normal hand soap on it and let it out in the sun to sunbathe. Still works perfectly confirmed.

    Just so you know mine is a Goliathus control edition
     
  14. I have the Razer Destructor 2. I usually have to clean it once a day because my cat like to roll in the dirt outside and then roll on my mouse pad... I just use a damp glass cloth and wipe it. Sometime I just use electrical wipe. My mousepad is still perfectly fine after 2-3 years of owning it and cleaning it almost everyday.

    It just feels like you're trying to explain that soaking the firefly is bad (lol sorry)

    I clean it when its dirty, you will see spots and filth on it.

    How I clean it is to soak it in soapy water like any other cloth object I want to clean then I air dry it with my mom's hair dryer and leave it in some natural light until fully dry.

    For me, I have 2 that I use, the Firefly, and a QcK Steelseries one. The cloth QcK one I just use small amount of soap and scrub it lightly with a brush on parts that needs some seriously cleaning, the rest I just wash it with water and let it dry on its own, it dries really fast under 30 min in a nice warm spot. I washed it twice now, nothing wrong with it, the mat still soft as new and nothing is tear or lifted from the rubber padding on the bottom. As for the Firefly or other plastic materials, I just use small amount of water, enough to scrub with small amount of soap, not too much that it would spill everywhere and damage the Firefly, and scrub enough to get rid of the sticky or dark spottings left by the mouse. It should be very easy and fast. Works flawlessly for me so far.

    In most cases you should clean your mousepad with a damp cloth as different soap products my bleach out some the colours or ruin the mousepad.

    Hmmm... Good to know that. Thanks for the tips! Btw I'm using Goliathus control edition as well.
