Warning! Don't mix the bacardi with coke!!!
While, technically this would work. There are safer means to clean your trackball. If it doesn't roll in one direction, power the device off, press hard on the trackball and roll in the direction that's giving you trouble. This will clear the debris from under the ball.
Also, this thread is about trackwheel
devices (8700), not trackball
devices like your bold.
