Soak your self healing cutting mat in the bathtub every once in a while! Self healing mats like moisture.
Here is what you do:
Fill tub or large container with COOL WATER (not too hot or cold) and add 1/4 cup white vinegar to every gallon. Make sure your mat stays flat and leave in for 15 minutes. When done, use a mild soap and gently scrub with a soft toothbrush to remove any trapped fibers. Towel dry and lay flat to finish drying. Do not lay outside to dry, direct sunlight will warp your mat also.
Keeping your mat soft and supple makes it last longer and doesn’t dull your blades.
Remember!!! Your cutting mats NEVER like heat or to be bent. Once they are warped…they are pretty much useless.
Keep those mats Sassy♥
