Mouse Wheel

Does anyone know how to clean the mouse wheel on a modern mouse. Note - I do not mean the mouse ball underneath the mouse. I mean the scroll wheel on top that lets you avoid using the side bar to navigate through a page. My mouse works great, but now the wheel sticks and causes other pages to open without my consent. I'd blame communism, but I'm pretty sure it's the mouse wheel.

I wouldn't be so sure about that. I just came back from China, and all the scroll wheels were dirty there. Coincidence? Maybe. But I wouldn't be so quick to discount Communism if I were you.

I *knew* it!

I never met a mouse with a wheel. How do they carry it? Or do you mean a mouse who was on wheels? This is confusing.

That's why it's hard to clean, see. Most mice have legs. Mine has a wheel. There must have been some sort of accident before I bought it.
