touchpad lubricant (besides talc or cornstarch)

Discussion in 'Laptops' started by Jonathan Westbay, Jul 1, 2004.

  1. My oily skin makes a touchpad very difficult to use. I searched and
    found that some people use either talc or cornstarch to dust their
    finger in. However, these powders sure do make a mess. I also
    thought about graphite but that would be messy too. Any other ideas
    on a better solution to keep the touchpad smooth? I thought it might
    break in on its own, but that is not the case for me. As it is, I
    have thin fingertips and it has difficulty detecting the pressure.

    Palm-type write protectors, cut to size.
