How to Clean a Mousepad: Cloth & Fabric

This guide is an approved mousepad cleaning method from our product team to keep your gear free of dirt and grime.


If you’ve had any tracking issues when playing games, a dirty mousepad may be the culprit! Her iki durumda da fare altlığınızı ve elektronik ekipmanlarınızı düzenli olarak temizlemek iyi bir şeydir. A clean mousepad is key for your mouse to glide across effectively.

Kauçuk ya da plastik fare altlıkları ıslak mendille/nemli bezle kolayca temizlenebilir ancak, bez ya da fabrik fare altlıklarından her gün ellerimizden bulaşan yağı, tozu ve kiri çıkarmak biraz uğraştırır.

(Not: Bu temizlik yöntemi RGB/kablosu olmayan fare altlıkları içindir. QCK Prizma ya da diğer RGB/kablolu fare altlıklarından birine sahipseniz, RGB ya da Qck Prizma FareAltlığı Nasıl Temizlenir? blog yazısını okuyun.)

Cleaning Supplies

  • Mild dish soap/detergent
  • Temizlik fırçası
  • Microfiber cloths
  • Hair dryer
  • Disinfecting wipes
  • Isopropyl alcohol
  • Soft Brush
  • Havlu

5 Steps to Clean Your Cloth or Fabric Mousepad:

  1. Fare altlığınızı, içinde tercihen ılık su bulunan bir küvete ya da geniş bir leğen tarzı bir şeye (mesela mutfak lavabonuz) koyun. (hatırlatma: kablolu/RGB fare altlığınız varsa bunu yapmayın).

  2. Fare altığına çok az yumuşak bulaşık sabunu damlatın. Unutmayın, az miktarda kullanım yeterlidir.

  3. Fırçayı kullanarak, lekeleri, yağı ve kalıntıları temizlemek için fare altlığının tamamını güzelce ovalayın.

  4. Fare altlığını iyice sıkarak olabildiğince kuruttuğunuzdan emin olun ve bez kısmı yere gelecek şekilde havlunun üstünde kurumaya bırakın.

  5. Birkaç saat sonra, fare altlığı oyun için hazır olacaktır! Gerekirse tekrar edin.

Can You Put a Mousepad in the Washing Machine?

While manufacturers advise against machine washing soft or fabric mousepads to prevent damage and reduce lifespan, it's safe for machine-washable mousepads made of materials like polyester, nylon, rubber, and more. Follow these steps for optimal results:

  1. Remove loose dirt with a soft brush.
  2. Add a dash of mild detergent to the machine.
  3. Use cold water and a low tumble cycle to prevent heat damage.
  4. Avoid using bleach to preserve colors and material integrity.
  5. Air dry the mousepad for 24-36 hours before use to prevent water damage.

If uncertain, consult the manufacturer to ensure your specific mousepad can withstand machine washing. For custom designs or delicate fabrics, hand washing is advisable. Proper care ensures a clean and functional mousepad without risking damage.

Can You Use a Sponge to Clean a Mousepad?

Indeed, a sponge can be useful for cleaning your mousepad, especially if it's a fabric or cloth-like mousepad. Here's a simple process using a sponge to refresh your mousepad:

What you'll need:

  • Mild dishwashing liquid
  • Sponge
  • Clean towel
  • Follow these steps:

1.Place the mousepad in a clean sink or bathtub. Wet it with warm water and apply a small amount of mild dishwashing liquid. 2. Gently rub the soap onto the surface using the sponge. Carefully scrub away stains, ensuring not to scratch any designs or surfaces. 3. Flip the mousepad over, repeat the process on the back, and thoroughly rinse. 4. Lay a clean towel on the floor, place the mousepad on top, and wrap it with the towel. Gently press to absorb excess moisture, aiding the drying process and preventing mold. 5. Allow the mousepad to air dry in a well-ventilated area, avoiding direct sunlight to prevent fading.

This method offers a practical solution for cleaning fabric mousepads, removing built-up dirt and grime for a refreshed and hygienic surface.

Can a Dirty Mouse Affect Gameplay?

A dirty mouse can significantly impact gameplay. Dirt and debris can infiltrate your mouse, leading to various performance issues. For instance, dust accumulation near the optical sensor can hinder responsiveness and accuracy, diminishing your gaming precision. That's one of the reasons why we've created the AquaBarrier™ technology for our Aerox line.

Moreover, gunk under the mouse buttons and scroll wheels can result in lags and unregistered clicks, affecting your gameplay flow and causing frustration. To ensure optimal performance, it's vital to maintain a clean mouse. Regular maintenance, such as wiping down the exterior and using compressed air to remove dust from crevices, will help preserve your mouse's functionality and enhance your gaming experience.
