i've got a fulldesk mousepad, its been unmoved for atleast 4 years and its getting a bit sticky/grimy, is there any good way to deepclean it without moving all my speakers PC monitor etc etc? 
could soaking it and vacuuming it work?

Mild dish soap and a microfiber rag will do the trick.

Dishwasher works as well, though some fare better than others, and require you to remove the mousepad from your desk.

For more sticky situations, I've also used Simple Green to good success. Seems to work a little better than soap/water, and smells great to boot!

Without moving, use one of those tape-rollers which you use to take off dust and hair from clothes. But for actual deep cleaning, soap and water.

Soap, Stiff Brush, and massive amounts of water and patience. And an electric drier of some sort is better, but its not like god haven't made one already for you.

I usually take a lint roller to ours, spray a lite coat of ZEP Foaming Glass Cleaner,  and wipe it down with a cloth.

Not sure whats in the ZEP Glass Cleaner but it actually works pretty well.

i took a fresh dishcloth (one of those weird foam ones that are stiff as a board until they get wet) and some multiclean kitchen cleaner and swabbed away, seemed to have worked.

Vacuuming is definitely an option, but you'll have to get some soap/water on it to get all the deep dirt and grime out. I usually use an abrasive sponge, but that's probably not the best for the material of the mat.

I left this here just to annoy people.

It’s really effective, a dishwasher is relatively gentle for cleaning things, I’ve cleaned many computer parts with a dishwasher in the past.

it’s great for motherboards coated in grime

Dishsoap, warm water and a tooth brush. Dry it on paper towel after. Not sure about RGB ones, might be more pain in the ass.
