Try Goo-Gone [How to clean the Mighty Mouse's scroll ball]
Authored by: ScienceMan on Jul 26, '08 10:49:43AM

I tried the "upside-down rolling on damp cloth method" without results. This worked, however:

Put a few drops of the "Goo-Gone" commercial solvent on a paper towel. Wait for it to spread out a bit. Roll the trackball with the mouse upside down on the damp spot on the towel, pushing hard. This cleared it up perfectly in a few seconds.

Try Goo-Gone [How to clean the Mighty Mouse's scroll ball]

This worked for me. I'd tried using 99% isopropyl alcohol which only made the problem worse. A few drops of Goo Gone on a paper towel followed by rolling the mouse around upside-down on said paper towel, and Bang! I was back in (scrolling) business.
