My Apple Mouse apparently has a fine hair or something in it as it will not scroll DOWN. Scrolling up works normally.

In the past, I have remedied this problem by taking a lightly moist sponge and carefully brushing it over and over on the scroll button. Eventually, this has removed the offending obstruction and the mouse resumes normal operation. This time, no luck! I have temporarily replaced this mouse with clunky Logitech mouse that was sitting in a drawer. It works, of course, but has no appeal to me.

Is there a way to more thoroughly clean the Apple Mouse?

For the curious, I am pretty sure of the source of the hair particles - - - as I have a cat that lives to sit in front of my keyboard as I type.
