Clean out that mouse!

Listen to this MP3 tip Listen to this Tip

When was the last time you cleaned out your mouse? What, you say you didn’t even know your mouse could be cleaned? Cleaning out your mouse is a must if you want smooth, easy scrolling. Here’s all you have to do: Turn your mouse over and you’ll notice a little ring with arrows around the ball in the center. Turn that ring in direction of the arrows until it unlocks, allowing you to remove the ball. Inside you’ll notice two little rods and they will probably be extremely dirty. Use your fingernail to scratch all the crud off those rods, blow it all out, and then replace the ball. Put the ring back on and turn it opposite the direction of the arrows. Turn your mouse over and try it now. Ahhh. Nothing like a clean mouse to scroll yourself all over the place.
