    Maybe use a wetnap? The little wipes that are folded up into a little square until you take it out and its soaked in good smelly stuff?

    Or you could use a q-tip and rub alcohol onto it and that should clean it.

    Hope this helps,

    What about the moisture from the q-tip or the wet cloth. Anyone have any problems with that affecting this Pearl. With the alcohol it should try quickly, right. Just wondering before i try it. Thanks.

    ive used the qtip and alcohol numerous times and no problems. i use the qtip to clean the trackball and the keypad. don't 'drench' the qtip...just tip it once into the alcohol...

    I too can confirm using a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol. a little bit on the tip does the trick.
    There is the right way, the wong way, and there is My Way !

    the silver ring that surrounds the pearl comes off. you can pull it off with your fingernail. then the pearl comes out and you can give it a good alcohol bath (couldn't we all use one of those from time to time). be careful and gentle when taking the silver part off... try the q-tip meathod first if you're unsure about doing this...
    The above commentary is for entertainment purposes only. If this was actual joke the tone you just heard would have been followed by emergency response information. It's supposed to be fun people.

    Just to let you guys know the ball does get stained from all the dirt and oils on your hands. Never really comes off and super white again.

    See, now you guys got me noticing. Even after just a few weeks, it's far too dirty for my liking. I'll have to bust out the wet naps.
