I know what you're talking about. I use mine in the keyboard drawer of a computer desk which I push in when not in use and it still gets really dusty. Every few months I run a lint-removing roller over it and gently wash it with some soap and water and a microfiber cloth too. It doesn't really quite feel the same as it was now but I don't have a brand new one to be sure.
It really sucks because Artisan mousepads are so damned expensive because of the yen-dollar exchange rate.
At any rate, I'll probably get the raiden anyways. I already have my perfect mouse and keyboard and am out of useless knick knacks to buy
