How can I reuse or recycle … old mouse mats?
They seem to be one of those things that we used to absentmindedly collect, back in the day when everyone thought it was a great idea to give away promotional mousemats or that it was *the* cheap and cheerful present to buy anyone who ever admitted to using a computer.
Given our hoarding nature, we still have a number around the house and as useful as a 2002 Dell-sponsored calendar would be to me on a day to day basis (“hmm, my birthday was a Saturday that year, how interesting”), I have a trackpad mouse now so the mats as a whole are pretty much pointless.
(On the rare occasion when I use a plug-in mouse, it’s an optical one and I use a curled up cat as a mousemat, just for the irony.)
So, we’ve got a few plastic ones and a couple of fuzzy, fabric ones to reuse. Any suggestions?
