    I use Allsop screen and surface wipes. I picked them up at Wal-Mart to use on my laptop and they seem to work really well on all my electronic devices!

    A q-tip and alcohol works well.

    Also the "canned" air helps blow out lint.

    Also, don't carry the BB in your pocket. It can pick up lint that way.

    Yeah I did the whole alcohol thing and it worked like a charm. Except that it was really jumpy and kept selecting crap I didn't want to. But after putting it down to let it dry (and suffering mild withdrawls) it was back to normal and my trackball was white and clean. Yay! And licking it will make it worse. It strips the coating on the trackball rendering it useless. (A co-worker learned that the hard way!)
