PostPosted: Mon Feb 21, 2011 4:16 pm    Post subject: mouse pad Reply with quote

I have this synthetic fiber mouse pad and im not sure what it is actually made of. It is old and dirty so before I went out to buy another one I decided I would try and clean it up.

I washed it with a little bit of dishwasher soap, I need to go get more laundry detergent. Then I dried it on a flat surface with a cloth. I didnt feel right twisting it dry.

Then it hit me: why dont I spray polish on it? I only had wood/furniture polish. I sprayed it down and let it dry. Now, I dont remember how it felt before, but I think its pretty slick now. In fact, Im going to spray it again later. I have been using it for a few hours now and the bottom of my mouse looks okay.

With a little detergent and some polish spray, I turned an old busted mousepad into a slick monster headshot gaming mousepad.

I am not recommending this procedure to anyone, I am just reporting my new thing.

chin Hmmm...maybe I should try a mousepad someday. I have a Microsoft laser mouse and just use it right on my wooden pull-out board on my desk. Never had a mousepad for it since I got rid of the roller balls....

well now you got me thinking, the heel of my palm rests on the pad. I noticed a lot of friction between those two points. Its like I can feel every groove on my palm bouncing across the mousepad. Its like nails on a chalk board for me. Even thought the mouse feels like gliding on air. So embarrassingly I confess, I lotion up that part of my hand before I play. But on a noncloth pad, wood, glass, etc., that friction would probably be greatly reduced.

Maybe I could duct-tape the heel of my palm.

I'm a little bit more cheap...

I bought a 3 pack of self-ashesive lino meter squares for £1. I stuck one to the corner of the desk and it's amazing. My mouse moves smooth, I get no grip on my hand and even though I do eventually wear the surface away through over-use, I can resurface it with other tile.

I found this little method out when I wore about 5mm into a wodden desk, actually making a concave about 50 cm in diameter. I literally wore a hole in my desk playing on games. Now that's dedication.

Teflon coated baking sheet FTW. Get a nice flat one and just slap your mouse right on top. You might need some of the non slip stuff to lay under it, but it works like a charm and can be bought cheaply at wallyworld.

You mean the 'Lamprey' model, manufactured by the Nation Lampoon Company of Griswold, NY?

Just put a trojan on your mouse and squirt a little KY jelly on your tabletop before every gaming session and you'll be good to go Fera...
plus the trojan will protect you from virus'... chin or so I've heard.

Just get the ultra sensitive one. Very thin "skinned" I hear.
Or use what DAX uses, the old real ones, made from Lambskin!
