With more and more of us spending more time at our desks, it’s only a matter of time before we funk up our mouse pads with pizza grease, soda, or other mystery stains. As someone who’s scarfed down an entire grilled cheese seconds before a video conference, I get it, sometimes food at the desk happens, which ultimately means food on the desk will happen. Stains are inevitable.

So, here is a list of places you shouldn’t put your mouse pad, if you were thinking of taking it off your desk to clean it:

  • Out in the sun. It’ll fade!
  • The dishwasher. It’s not a cutting board.
  • The washing machine or dryer. Extreme suds and extreme heat? Bad for rubber, bad for plastic.
  • The microwave. Seriously, what?
