I actually use an old, clean woolly sock, folded, for where the wrist contacts the pad. It isn't elegant- but the same mousepad for many years! Works well enough,- as long as the sock is laundered occasionally. :P

Dawn is used to clean off animals that have gotten caught up in oil spills, so it’s very effective and safe. Some cleaners can leave a residue, but Dawn rinses pretty clean. I just put the mat in a sink with soapy water and scrub it with a rag. Then rinse it, as I said.

When my twins were coming I did a lot of reading, and there were several sites & books that warned not to use dish detergent to wash out baby bottles & such due to them leaving a residue that the baby could potentially have a problem with. So that's where that came from. They didn't mention Dawn specifically that I can recall. I've never noticed a residue problem with Dawn myself either, and have been using that brand since at least the mid-80s. I even use a mixture of Dawn, ammonia, and hot water to clean the inside of my car windows, which would very visibly show any residue. So that & given AB's experience, I'm sure your fine. :)

What is it?

At first blush the name appears fairly descriptive of what we might expect it to do:

Computer:

Spoiler

 

From Webopedia:

A computer is a programmable machine. The two principal characteristics of a computer are: It responds to a specific set of instructions in a well-defined manner and it can execute a prerecorded list of instructions (a program).

 

Repair:

Spoiler

 

From Wiktionary:

The act of repairing something: Verb: To restore to good working order, fix, or improve damaged condition; to mend; to remedy.

 

Simulator:

Spoiler

 

From Wiktionary:

A machine or system that simulates an environment (such as an aircraft cockpit), often for training purposes.

 

Other than that, short on the detail. It looks interesting- but haven't tried. But may someone else has/will. Are you brave enough?
