Today, I had enough. My cutting mat is covered in little felted clusters of tshirt... dust bunnies. Last time this happened I just flipped my mat over! I figured I would share my little gem on knowledge (after I figured it out what worked best myself)
Olfa.com suggests using a generous amount of room temperature water and a few drops of mild detergent. Use a soft, mild bristle brush such as a toothbrush or mushroom brush to create a lather and gently clean your mat. Rinse with room temperature water and wipe dry with a cotton towel.
So I'm either lazy or just impatient. I don't really want to lug my big mat to the bathroom for a wash down... even though I'm sure it would work. Instead I followed up on another tip I found. Ready for it?
Use your quilting gloves and rub over your cutting mat with circular motions to ball up the debris on your mat. Quick and easy and within arms reach of my work space too!
Do you have this problem too? If you have any craft room clean up tips, please pleeeease share them!
