How to clean Apple Mighty Mouse video

No, do not use WD40. There is a spray solvent that leaves no oily residue, it's perfect for this job. You can buy a spray can of "PCB Cleaner," also called by various names like Circuit Board Degreaser, etc. I bought a spray can at Radio Shack for about $12. It has a little tube so you can squirt it right down the roller ball, roll the ball around, and most of the gunk will be dissolved and cleared by the spray pressure.
I think you should always have a can of Circuit Board Cleaner around for emergencies. It's a solvent that leaves no residue, so it's good for driving out water spills and other liquids. I spilled coffee (with sugar) into my keyboard, usually that's fatal, sugar gunks up everything. I sprayed the keyboard hard with PCB Cleaner to drive out the coffee, problem solved.
