i did this with an old generic soft mousepad i had that was "lumpy".
first i took a blowdryer on low heat and applied it to the underside of the mousepad for like 7 minutes (first i tried 5, didnt get the results i wanted)
then i took some wax paper and put it on the underside (the rubber side) of the mousepad after (i did this because i wanted a smooth flat surface before applying weight)
i took a big flat book (to cover the surface area of the mousepad) i had and added a 25lb round weight on top of that to flatten everything down.
make sure you have a good, hard, flat surface to rest it on.
i let it sit overnight
it was much less lumpy the next day, however not 100% "lump free". you might have better luck with a better quality mousepad like the talent, this thing was like a $5 mousepad with the same thickness of my razer goliathus (which i ended up buying shortly after, im actually looking to buy a talent too).
the talent seems much thicker so im not sure how well this method is going to work, maybe use a heavier weight.
i wouldnt throw it in the washing machine but you do need to apply heat to it somehow so thats why i chose the blowdryer.
looking back on it now i should have just tossed it in the oven real quick to get the whole thing nice and toasty..not sure i would do that with a more expensive mousepad.
