Windows 7: Mouse that doesn't get dirty?

Mouse that doesn't get dirty?

Hey guys,

I've been using my Microsoft Wireless Mouse 5000 (and the Microsoft Wireless Comfort Keyboard 5000) for nearly a year, and I love them both. I use it for everything, including gaming.

My mouse is sort of getting annoying... It likes to get dirty. Lots of dust and debris on the underside, and some junk near the wheel area.

Does anyone know of a mouse that doesn't get dirty? Just annoying seeing how sort of nasty it looks.

Hello there, besweeet.

Every mouse in the whole world is going to get dirty because our hands are greasy. You could clean your mouse with a soft cloth to get the grease out, and the mouse pad, clean it with a little brush to remove the dust and stuff.

Other than that, pretty impossible to find a mouse that doesn't get dirty.

Sorry about that.

Aside from regular/occasional cleaning - all mice get dirty to some degree.

I had a friend whose keyboard was dirty. He put it in the dishwasher. I swear, true story. He then went out and bought a new keyboard.

bigmck,
I hope it took it out of the dishwasher!
Why didn't he put it in the clothes dryer and get it extra dry?

If you are concerned about the underside get a Logitech Trackman ball mouse. Really comfortable and accurate to use but it doesn't need to move.
Very occasionally you have to take the ball out and remove plaque.
This seems to be the latest version: Logitech Wireless Trackball M570: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories
