    There have been a few posts on here about how to clean the pearl. I don't have the link on hand but if you do a search you'll most likely find it.
    I'll see if I can find it and post it here.

    You can do the easy but not as effective way of just taking a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol and then rubbing (with the q-tip) some alcohol on the pearl and moving it around and you should get a cleaner pearl.

    If thats not clean enough or isn't working very well then you can do the extreme and remove the whole trackball. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to remove the trackball:

    Be careful when doing this as you may mess it up or lose some of the small pieces. I did it with little trouble and my pearl still works great so if you try it out just be careful,

    Hope this helps,

    I don't have a trackball, yet. However I thought the title of this thread was classic!
