I am kinda a clean freak when it comes to controllers / keyboards / mice and as i use my g700 it does get sweaty over time. I was planning on just cleaning it with rubbing alcohol, but now I'm wondering if that would degrade the texture on the side of the mouse? What is a good way to clean sweat from the G700?

I personally just use baby wipes as the soapy agent is safe enough for a babies skin then it won't hurt my mouse. I used to use rubbing alcohol (99%) but stopped as the rubber started to dry out.

You can just use a little dry hand towel to pat it dry. If you want to kill the germs on it, just mist the towel with a very light coat of alcohol. You just want to make the towel a bit damp, don't go overboard and soak it. Also, do not apply heavy pressure (hard scrubbing) when cleaning with a liquid, as this will help erode the material over time. You just want to pat it down.
This is also one of the reasons why I returned this mouse. I'm currently in cold weather here and whenever the heat in the house kicks on my hand would start to sweat during gaming sessions. The material is already a bit slippery when it's dry and adding sweat to it just makes it worse. I can't even begin to imagine how terrible this problem would be in the summer when it's constantly hot out.

That's some nice false-equivilancey logic you've got there, AluminumHaste. Next, you'll be telling us that you clean your baby with LCD wipes, becasue if an LCD wipe is good enough for delicate electronics, why it must bve safe for your baby, right?
Oh, and won't somebody please think of the children?
