) just water and melamine sponge
It works for removing the small tiny bits and also the hard to reach corners like the edge etc..however, I doubt it's strong enough to remove the whole surface's sticky material.

2) sponge with the hand sanitizer (should be IPA)
It didn't melt like what some bro mentioned, but the effect seems slightly better than using plain water..but really only slightly better...

still trying to find the super efficient solution that can spray and remove the material by normal tissue...dunno if this exist...any chemical researcher or scientist here ??

For razer DA, you can change the top cover to plastic. Just ordered mine from ebay, with starcraft 2 logo. Going to mod when it arrives!

The rubber on Razer mice is really er xin after long use. Someone should try commach's recommendation and tell us if it works.

The worst thing is, if you start rubbing out the matte and the surface becomes MORE sticky (or gets more sticky more easily) than before previously.

Too bad it doesn't seem like anyone is selling replacement keys for the diamondback. It's such a waste, mouse works fine but the surface is just too disgusting to use..

What I did was to use an eraser and rub on the surface.
After that, just use a clean cloth with some water to clear off the dirt.
Works for me and a cheaper solution.

Next time, give them to me instead.

I threw some practically decent mice recently that have had this problem

Do not use Axe oil or similar kind as it may contain acid which dissolve and oxidize your metal parts. Done this before and work fine at the beginning but after sometime the metal get reacted to form oxide or the metal salts.

In some situation cooking oil is very useful especially glue but I do not think it can be done here as it will be come even more sticky and oily unless you are able to use another medium to remove it such as soap and water.

Do not use Acetone as it will damage any plastic surface as it will become a stain after sometime.

Did any one try turpentine or paint remover?

Note: It will affect rubber after prolonged contact and some plastic. Harmful by inhalation, in contact with skin and if swallowed

just get isopropyl alcohol or denatured alcohol from guardian and use it to remove the rubber coating. It dissolves the rubber like nothing.
I used it to remove the rubber coating on my old razer DA
