Clean the Mighty Mouse's scroll ball with Rid-Ox
Authored by: mrmarkvi on Dec 27, '10 11:04:09AM

I used a similar procedure with a different cleaning solution.

I sprayed a dot of Rid-Ox Contact Protector/Enhancer from TechSpray onto a micro fiber towel - like what car detailers use - very soft and lintless - NOT onto the track ball itself.

Inverted the mouse and vigorously rubbed the trackball around in the wet spot - after making sure it was not soaked, just damp with the cleaner.

Then moved the inverted mouse over to a clean piece of paper and again vigorously rolled it around on the paper. Did not notice any debris.

Repeated the steps again. The mouse was then plugged back in an worked as new. I cleaned 2 mice in about 15 minutes with total success.

I did this after reading about some rather arduous procedures - glad it worked and so quickly, since I'm not ready for such elaborate

disassemblies, etc. Here's hoping it will work for others.
