A mouse pad is a small rectangular-shaped surface that we use to control the cursor. It is used in place of a mouse when our desk or workstation surface does not provide enough space for the desired use.
Besides using it as a replacement for a mouse, we can also use it when we need to draw something on the screen with the help of a graphics tablet and digital pen.
If your mouse pad has become dirty after using too much, then it’s time to clean it. In this article, we will discuss how you can clean a Dirty Mouse Pad?
How to Clean a Gaming Mouse Pad?
A mouse pad is a device that is meant to be kept under the mouse to stop the surface on which the mouse is running from being scratched or damaged. The bottom of the mouse pad usually has a layer of felt on it to prevent slippage.
To clean your gaming mouse pad, firstly, you need to pour warm water into a bowl and dip your dirty mouse pad into it for about 15 seconds. Then you need to wring it out and wipe it off with a paper towel. Finally, place your clean mousepad on some flat surface for long enough until dry. Here’s the step-by-step guide.
- Start by turning the mouse pad over and looking for a label or logo on the bottom. This will usually give you some kind of instruction.
- If there is no label or logo on the other side, turn it back to its original position and rub your hand across the top surface to see if anything is stuck to it. If something is stuck, gently use a dishcloth or paper towel with water and dish soap to remove stains and any debris that has built up over time. Be sure not to scrub too hard as this could cause damage to the surface of your mouse pad.
- If there was nothing on top of your mouse pad, take a cotton ball with alcohol on it and rub in circular motions across the surface of your mouse pad until all dirt particles are removed from the surface.

How often should you wash your mousepad?
Mice and keyboards can get dirty and since we use them so much, it’s important to clean them. But what about the mousepad? Well, mice glide effortlessly across a mousepad so it won’t get filthy like the keyboard or screen.
The mousepad should be cleaned every month. It might not need to be washed as often but it’s still necessary to wipe off any dirt that might accumulate on it. This can be done with a damp cloth and some soap or an antibacterial spray.
