At that point the cloth was still fine. On my QCK pads, I only threw those away because the rubber base changed and got depressions and wasn't flat anymore, but the cloth surface had no issues.
Yes, I have washed all of my mousepads before. I should have clarified earlier, though. The only mousepads I have are the Razer Goliathus and my current one, which I thought
was a Roccat Sense until I found out that it was a complete fake. Surprisingly, even this $5 fake is better than the Goliathus I have. I found the tracking on the Goliathus absolutely terrible. Because of the weave, the mouse would even glide left to right faster than it did up and down. T_T
