Default Dirty Gaming Gears

I don't know why but my gaming peripherals always end up in a bad shape. My keyboard loses all alphabet markings after a few months. My Beats headphone has its muffs completely eroded by sweat and the wires down to the spinal level. My mouse and gamepads always collect gunk after hours of use. My 3DS collects dust like a vacuum.

It's a pain to clean mouse and gamepad because the gunk always slide into small openings. But how do I prevent all this from happening in the first place? Why must it always end up like this?

if you invest in a keyboard with laser-etched keycaps, you can solve at least your first problem

I still have a white-yellowish keyboard. 15 years old and it works perfectly and have all alphabet markings.

Mechanical keyboard for indestructable switches (and laser etched for the characters), any Logitech mouse for indestructable pointing device, and any hard mousepad for indestructable mousepad (just clean it once every month or so)

Problems: solved

How do I clean my current ones though? I think I'm prone to sweaty palms during intense gaming session, so my X360/PS4 controllers are always victims.

Clean keyboard by removing all caps (or just use an air compressor and blow a shitload of air through it to get all the garbage out), for mouse you can just remove the dust and it'll be a lot better, for mousepad (what I do at least because I have a hard mousepad) just put it under the sink and clean it off with water, easy

My old mouse has a lot of dust inside of the place where the scrollwheel is, so the scrolling was kinda fucked, I could've cleaned it by opening the mouse up but I was too lazy so I bought a new one

Hmm, every single mousepad I've used are torn apart in weeks, so I don't think soaking them in the water will work.

Also the same thing happened to my previous mouse, but it also affected mouse 1 because the dust got under it.


Are there any reliable gamer gear cleaner tool set purchasable online?
