I was making party hats for my lil one's birthday (in my pajamas, of course), and discovered that my Cricut mat was filthy and had lost it's will to stick! Boo. My local crafting establishment isn't open at 1:00 am (go figure), and I was in a bind!
But, you know what they say....
"Necessity is the mother of invention."
To my surprise, my little technique worked like a charm! And as a bonus, my Cricut mat stayed out of the land fill. A win win win! For you, your pocketbook, and the environment.:)
Nasty, Dirty Cricut Mat
Handy dish scrubby thing and dish soap
Wet your mat....
Give it a good scrub to get all the gunk off
Let it air dry
That's all there is to it! You can see this mat and I have spent a lot of time together- and it is just as sticky as ever!
