Ah I got it now...those rubbers underneath keyboards, mouse and the likes..
it's a layer of latex. not those black anti slip pads.

Go to Guardian and buy Isopropyl Alcohol to clean the surface with a piece of cloth.

IPA is not used to clean away sticky stains. more to remove fungus, clean electrical contacts and for sterilised usage.

right after I posted this thread, I did a google and found a lot of solution suggesting IPA..and I remember I have a bottle of it lying down somewhere (got it from Thomson Medical Centre after my baby gal was deliver, it's actually a hand sanitizer..)

and it works! and got nice smell also..

I think the melamine sponge with the IPA might works like wonder..will go daiso to get the sponge tomorrow and try..cos I was using some thick tissue and still have so unreachable spots..

shall update later...

tried removing failed

now paste plastic sheet over them...keeping in mind not to buy stuff with "latex feel" or coating

stupid Razer/Logitech/Coolermaster all major culprits

can try R.A.T
maybe it won't be turned sticky so fast

I had a old mouse pad those typical normal types which starts to decompose & the whole pad sticks on my table.. I had to scrap it off with sharp object & left with scattered leftovers.. can the above suggestions remove it?
