Why Do Mouse Pads Have Odors?

During the production process of mouse pads, chemical products such as foam and adhesives are used, which quickly generate odors. The foam rubber at the bottom of the mouse pad provides anti-slip and cushioning effects, but due to its numerous micro-pores, it tends to absorb odors.

After production, most mouse pads are directly packaged and have limited air exchange with their surroundings. They are kept in relatively sealed packaging. Players can still smell the odor produced during manufacturing when they open the package.

Generally speaking, some mouse pads have an artificial fragrance-like smell that is slightly aromatic but also spicy. Others may have a scent similar to dried fish – milder but still unacceptable for many people.

Most people do not wash or expose newly purchased mouse pads because these methods can cause irreparable damage.

To be on the safe side, one can use materials with strong adsorption properties towards odors to effectively eliminate them.

Ventilation to Remove Mouse Pad Odor

Some mouse pads may have a slight odor, which can be placed in a calm and ventilated area to dissipate the smell. Be careful not to expose the mouse pad to direct sunlight, as prolonged exposure can cause irreparable damage and significantly reduce lifespan. Additionally, it is best to have some airflow, as this will help eliminate the odor more quickly.

Using Tea Leaves to Remove Mouse Pad Odor

Removing the odor from a mouse pad is quite simple. Take an appropriate amount of tea leaves (about 10g-25g) and wrap them in breathable tissue paper.

Place the tea leaves and the mouse pad together in the packaging. You can use a badminton tube or similar container if the original packaging is damaged or discarded.

After sealing the package, let it sit for about two weeks until the tea leaves absorb most of the odor.

Charcoal and Activated Carbon for Odor Removal

Since tea leaves are natural organic substances that do not cause damage to the mouse pad itself when used for removing odors, if you don’t drink tea regularly, you can purchase some activated carbon or dry charcoal as substitutes for tea leaves to absorb odors.

However, when using charcoal products, ensure they are properly sealed to avoid contamination of the mouse pad. Overall, using tea leaves for odor removal is more reliable.

Removing Mouse Pad Odor with Essential Oil

Place your mouse pad in a well-sealed box and add a few drops of essential oil around it. Close the lid tightly, and after one day, open it again; you should no longer detect any significant odors from your mousepad.

However, be cautious; no,t directly drop essential oil onto your mousepad surface during this process.

Removing Mouse Pad Odor with Perfume

If you don’t have essential oils at home, you can use perfume following similar steps.
Put your mousepad into a box, spray perfume, and close the lid. After a while, the fragrance of the smell will naturally mask any unpleasant odors from your mouse pad.

Removing Mouse Pad Odor with Water

Place your mouse pad in water to remove any rubber smell by boiling it at a high temperature. This method is beneficial for newly purchased mouse pads.

These are six methods for removing odor from a mouse pad. Besides charcoal/activated carbon, which may not be commonly used at home, tea leaves and perfumes are more readily available household items. Even if you don’t have these items on hand, leaving the mouse pad in a well-ventilated area for an extended period will allow the odor to dissipate gradually.

If you cannot remove the odor from your mouse pad, I recommend purchasing a custom mouse pad from Diipoo.
