How to Clean a KaterGames Mousepad

Our KaterGames Gaming Mousepads are easy to clean. On this page, we want to introduce two methods to help you restore your KaterGames Gaming Mousepad to its maximum brightness.

Washing Machine

Yes, we're serious. The easiest way to clean our mousepads is by putting them in the washing machine.

  • 30°C washing program
  • Preferably use a gentle cycle with low or no spinning
  • Regular laundry detergent
  • Hang on a clothesline to dry

That's it. Once the mousepad is dry again, it will shine like new. Even the water-repellent coating should remain intact.

Hand Wash

The slightly more labor-intensive option is hand washing. Due to the size of our gaming mousepads, it's best to use the bathtub. Fill it with about 30-40°C warm water until the mousepad is well covered. Add some laundry detergent to the water and mix it around a bit.

Now, simply rub the surface of the pad thoroughly with your hands. Please do not use kitchen sponges or brushes, as they will unfortunately remove the water-repellent coating.

Rinse the pad thoroughly afterward to avoid unsightly detergent marks.


For drying your mousepad, the easiest way is to use a clothesline. As a precaution, you might want to place a towel underneath to catch any water dripping from the mousepad.

IMPORTANT When hanging the pad to dry, be sure not to hang it in too tight curves or with folds. This will affect its lying properties later. The easiest way is to hang it on the clothesline across 3-4 bars simultaneously or lay it flat on the clothesline.

Why Is It Important to Regularly Clean Your Gaming Mousepad?

1. Improved Performance:

A clean mousepad can help your mouse respond more precisely and quickly. Dirt and dust can affect the mouse's glide and lead to delays or inaccurate movements.

2. Extended Lifespan:

Regularly cleaning your mousepad can contribute to its longevity. Dirt and dust can accumulate over time and damage the material.

3. Hygiene:

A clean mousepad is more hygienic than a dirty one. Bacteria and germs can proliferate more easily on dirty surfaces and spread to other surfaces.

4. Aesthetics:

A clean mousepad looks better than a dirty one. If you want to enhance your gaming setup, cleaning your mousepad is a good starting point.

5. Better Health:

A clean mousepad can help you stay healthier. If you suffer from allergies or asthma, removing dust and dirt from your gaming mousepad can reduce your symptoms.

To ensure that your gaming mousepad performs optimally, you should clean it at least once a month. Use a mild cleaning agent and warm water to remove dirt and dust. Let the mousepad fully dry before using it again.
