But I just use clear tape and rubb it across the ball then take some Windex or face astringent normally.
Wont the vaseline reduce the friction between the trackball and the magnetic rollers. I know that if dirt gets between them the trackball stops working in one or more directions. I am thinking that vaseline will have a similar effect. Have you noticed this?
