How to clean a gaming mouse.

I have a Tt-eSports Theron gaming mouse and I love it. I could say it is my favorite so far. However, last night my sister spilled cola all over it accidentally and right now its all sticky and it doesn't feel as comfortable to click as it used to be. I tried to clean it with tissues and etc. but none of them got the job done well enough. I don't know if I want to disassemble it to clean it as I have never done such a thing to a mouse before. I'm afraid I might not be able to put it back together properly.

Any ideas on what to clean all the cola in it?

To clean the dried gunk inside of it, you have to take it apart.

Hmmm perhaps I'll have to do that, do you know of any guides on how to disassemble and reassemble this particular mouse?

There are a few screws underneath the feet. Youll have to order new ones :(  Or if you're lucky the mouse came with extra feet.

I don't think it came with any extra stuff. Am I obliged to order a new pair? I live in Turkey, thus it would take a rather long time and perhaps I'll have to pay a hefty price for the delivery.

Some mice, you can gently pry the feet off and then reglue them on.
The screws are underneath.

Alright, I'll try it out and see if it works.

I've been able to clean it, it was quite hard but I've been able to do it. Gladly I didn't have to renew the feet. This mouse turns out to be incredibly well built, I'm beyond happy. Thank you and if there is anyone considering to buy a gaming mouse, I certainly recommend it - perhaps the newer versions would be as good. :)
