  1. Anyone knows how to clean a sticky mouse? I already tried microfiber cloth with isopropyl alcohol.

      What kind of mechanism is it?  I’m a fan of optical mice or trackballs.
      If it is an optical ball mechanism then there will likely be 3 little nubs in the ball cavity that need to be cleaned as well.  I usually use a cotton swab to dislodge the gunk that accumulates around the nubs and makes the ball stick.  Alcohol optional.  

      Try not to get anything on the laser/sensor window.  If that gets fogged or blurred/smudged by debris then it can cause the ball to mis-track as well.  I once made the mistake of “cleaning” the window on my trackball mouse with a swab contaminated by the nub gunk.  I wound up smudging it instead and it took a bit of work to clean it enough for it to track well again.  The window is usually hidden behind the ball and well protected from dust etc. so usually I leave it alone.  99 times out if 100 just cleaning the ball with a cloth and the nubs with a swab (or even just your finger) is all it takes.
