How to Clean Your Gaming Mouse Pad

So you've been gaming a lot recently and you're well on your way to becoming a pro gamer. It's all thanks to using the right accessories (and maybe your skills), including the Glorious gaming mouse pads. The premium stitching around the entire perimeter of our pads guarantees that the surface will never fray. However, like any mouse pad or mouse mat, this doesn't stop them from getting dirty, especially after extended use. Grease, sweat, snacks...all can ruin the longevity. Here are two methods how to clean your gaming mouse pad in no time.

How to clean your gaming mouse pad - the DIY method

Basically, there are two ways to make your mouse pad look as good as new. The first one is what we refer to as "DIY labor". Here's what you need to do:

  • Fill sink or bath with warm water and hand / dish soap
  • Toss mousepad in
  • Use a sponge to rub the mousepad surface lightly (apply a bit more pressure if the stains are more stubborn)
  • Rinse the mousepad nicely, making sure there's no soap left
  • Pat the mousepad dry
  • Air dry once done (for optimal results, wait at least 24 hours before use)

That's it! Amazingly simple and a surefire way to restore the Glorious look of your gaming mousepad.

Restoring your mousepad's former glory is very easy.

We do understand, however, that you may sometimes be too lazy to go through the whole DIY procedure. Hence, we feel it's our noble duty to answer the following question:

Can you put a mouse pad in the washing machine?

Fortunately, you can! Our mousepads are machine washable, too. All you need to do is:

  • Toss the mousepad in the washing machine
  • Add a dash of soap / regular detergent
  • Set to cold, low tumble (don't use hot water!)
  • Air dry once done (for optimal results, wait at least 24 hours before use)

Voila! You've just restored your mousepad's former glory. You can choose whichever method you prefer, and the result will be the same - a clean Glorious gaming mousepad that's ready for all the abuse you can throw at it.
