Depends on the level of grime
Authored by: gglockner on Oct 27, '08 08:27:54AM

Normally, I can clean the MM scrollball by the paper/moistened cloth method. A bit of compressed air can also be helpful. But today, it was so dirty that 10 minutes of cleaning didn't fix it. I found that rolling the ball on some adhesive tape was enough to clean it. Better yet, I remembered that I have some two-sided ("double-stick") tape. I put a small piece on my desk and rolled the mouse along for a few minutes. Voila, now the scrollbar works perfectly.
