Anyone else experienced similar problem? I washed it after a year of use since the dirt or skin build up was becoming visible.

I followed the wash instructions properly but decided to air dry it for like 16+ hours. It came out brand new looking perfectly clean and smelling fresh.

At first it felt fine since i had a fresh mouse pad i thought, but over the past 2 weeks its clear this shit is turtle slow, the friction is unreal and just general movement feels forced. More importantly then it being much slower then before its terribly inconsistent which i think is the real problem.

Any suggestions? I ordered a QCK because i dont trust Razer but i would still like to see if i can salvage this pad as a spare.

Could Air drying really have left undesired substance?
