Try getting an air duster and shooting it in openings around the batter compartment and in between the buttons. I don't think there's really any better way.

I don't know of any way to clean the scroll wheel, if that is what you are refering to. I think canned air would be about the only solution.
Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive. Plus, who wants to arrive to the hereafter in pristine condition wearing a suit and tie?
I want to slide in sideways, worn out, used up, hair a mess, clothes tattered, & screaming, "Whooo! What a ride!"
