Rescued my laptop portable mouse from death. Mouse diagnosis – corroded battery terminals.

It may not seem a big coup to most, but it is to me for a number of reasons, first of which and most importantly: it is my quest to be part of the non-throw-away-because-it-seems-not-to-work brigade. I knew I could resurrect it with a bit of nouse – oh yeah, and Google, oh yeah that’s right, and Youtube – seems I only had the nouse to go to a search engine L  BUT I did save my mouse and the planet (just a little) through recycling J

Saving the Dead Mouse Recipe

  • A tablespoon of white vinegar
  • A tablespoon of water
  • A couple of Q-tips or cotton swabs
  • Mix water and vinegar, dip Q-tip into the mixture and scrape away at the corrosion on the terminals.
  • Make sure the terminals are dry before inserting batteries and voila - resurrected mouse!
  • PS can be applied to remotes, toys, torches etc.
