Clean off any stains and marks that won’t come off the mouse’s bottom surface pads. Pay close attention to the four-foot sections at the corners of the bottom surface. These spots gather up dirt as they pass over the mouse pad’s surface.

A cotton swab should be lightly dampened with the cleaning solution. Use it to clear the area around the laser or LED of dust. When cleaning the laser or LED, use caution.

  • Avoid using the swab to directly clean the laser or LED. Don’t push against it either. It might be moved by you.
  • To gently clean the region around the mouse’s LED or laser pointer, use a cotton swab.
  • Wipe the region close to the laser or LED with a dry cotton swab. Do not touch the LED or laser.
  • Before using the mouse, let it fully dry.
  • Alcohol should not be used because it can fade a mouse’s color. Mild dish detergent is advised by Logitech.
