We hate the grungy dust and grit that builds up inside our beautiful white mouse. It gets kind of gross on top, too. So here's our weekly dust reminder, and we're focusing on the mouse...

We clean our mouse almost every day. We use a soft cloth or a paper towel to rub away any dust and grime. Since it's an optical mouse we check and make sure that there isn't any grit that's interfering with the tracking light.

Back when we used an old-fashioned mouse we regularly took it apart to clean the ball and inner wheels. How does so much dust build up in these things?

Look for a weekly reminder from us on dusting and keeping your computer and other home technology clean and healthy. We want to keep our spaces warm, healthy, and as clean as possible - we'll give you a little nudge every week.

Will you dust off your mouse today, and do you have any tips for keeping your mouse clean?
