If you have a rubber coated gaming mouse for a couple of years, maybe you have experienced sticky mouse surface that sticks to your palm. In this post I will tell you how to get rid of the deteriorating rubber coat on your mouse.
My mouse is Razer Lachesis 4000 dpi. After using it for about 3 years, i noticed that the rubber finish is starting to peel off and became quite sticky. It gets really ugly as it became really easy to be covered by dust.
- First you need to unscrew all of the screws that you can find. (you might have to remove the teflon feets first.)
- Disasseble the mouse untill you get only the top cover of your mouse without nothing attached to it.
- Soak the cover (you might also want to do this to the side buttons aswell) in a relatively strong water detergent solution for about 15 minutes.
- Use an old toothbrush to brush off the rubber coating and wash off the excess detergent.
- Dry it off and voila! You have a nice satin touch finish* on the surface on your mouse.
Try it and tell me how'd you like it.
*Finish result may differ depending on your mouse material.
