    Question My mouse is squeaking!

    Seriously, my mouse has been squeaking all day every time I move it!

    Do they need oiling or something??

    get an optical one, or try cleaning out the one you have if it has a ball in the bottom of it. you might want to open it to do that.

    the little wheel things get dust and fluff and general desk crap on them, give em a scrub with your nails that normally does the trick for me

    Erkk no, I'm not scrubbing anything with these gorgeous nails!

    Might use a cotton bud if I can find one though.

    A cotton bud won't do it. You need something with an edge.
