How to clean a mousepad — Fabric or cloth

Before we go into this DIY method, it’s important to clarify that you should not use it on RGB or wired mousepads. Otherwise, you could end up damaging your mousepad and voiding the warranty. This cleaning method is explicitly for cloth and fabric mousepads. For a RGB mouse pad, you can see the method in the end of this article.

Generally our mouse pad is machine-washable, you can just simply add the baking soda, lukewarm soapy water and wash on a gentle cycl before hanging to dry.

For some dirty mouse pads please see the steps:

1.First, fill up a bathtub, sink or a large basin with a few drops of dish soap and baking soda Do not use hot water as this could melt the adhesive between the cloth and pad

2.Submerge your mousepad in the wate

3.Use a brush or sponge to scrub the mousepad. Scrub in circular motions and be careful not to bend the mousepad too much if it has a foam base, or you could risk damaging it. Likewise, don’t scrub too aggressively on the foam side for the same reason. 

4.Once you’re satisfied that the dirt and stains have been removed, you can drain the water and rinse out the mousepad with fresh warm water. If you have a foam base, you can squeeze the mousepad between your fingers to remove excess soap, but don’t wring it or you could damage it. 

5. Now that all of the soap is washed out, you can pat your mousepad dry using towels or a microfiber cloth. Press it flat with whichever you choose on both sides to soak up as much as possible.

6.Then, leave your mousepad out to dry completely, cloth side down, before reusing. It will need a few hours at least, or ideally overnight. 

How to clean an RGB or wired mousepad

Because it’s electronic, an RGB or wired mousepad should not be submerged in water. Instead, follow these steps:

1. Make sure it’s fully unplugged and away from any other electronics. 
2. Soak a fresh microfiber cloth in warm, soapy water, then wring it out as best you can. You want it to be damp, not sodden, but still soapy.  
3. Wipe the damp cloth across your mousepad and along the sides to remove any dirt. Avoid any ports of openings as you do this as well as the electronics box. 
4. Rinse the microfiber cloth with fresh water to remove any soap and wring out fully once more. 
5. Wipe the cloth over the mousepad to remove the residual soap. Keep rinsing and wringing out the cloth and reapplying until all soap is gone.   
6. Leave your mousepad out to dry completely before using it.
