However, we’re on the case, and we know how to make your office desk pad brand new!

The Solution

CASE 1: THE EVERYDAY HASSLE

Let’s start this off with an easy fix for your desk pad - the lint roller method.

Step 2: Grab the lint roller and fiddle with it pretending it’s a microphone for the next few minutes.

Step 4: Get back to singing, superstar!

CASE 2: WHEN THE COFFEE SPILLS

The second method is used when you can see some staining on your desk pad. No need to worry your favorite computer desk pad is in good hands.

Step 1: Get yourself and your desk pad to your shower, bath, or even outside. Things are about to get messy.

Step 2: Realize this is gonna require physical work and get into an internal debate with yourself if this is all even worth it.

Step 3: Apply cold water, and get to scrubbing GENTLY with some mild soap. Don’t forget to rinse!
