Cleaning a Cricut Cutting Mat in this blog it shares how to clean that cutting mat used to make your Circut projects.
Cleaning a Cricut Cutting Mat
To clean a Cricut cutting mat, you can follow these steps:
- Remove any excess debris or material from the mat by gently scraping it off with a spatula or scraper.
- Fill a sink or basin with lukewarm water and add a few drops of mild dish soap.
- Submerge the mat in the soapy water and use a soft-bristled brush or sponge to gently scrub it in a circular motion.
- Rinse the mat thoroughly with clean water to remove any soap residue.
- Gently pat the mat dry with a lint-free cloth or allow it to air dry completely before using it again.
Other ways to clean a cutting mat
- Baby wipes: You can use a baby wipe to clean your mat. This method is quick and easy, but you may need to use multiple wipes to remove all the debris.
- Rubbing alcohol: You can apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol to a lint-free cloth and use it to gently wipe down the mat. This method can be effective at removing stubborn debris or adhesive residue, but it may also remove some of the mat’s stickiness.
- Vinegar: You can mix equal parts water and white vinegar in a spray bottle and spritz the mat. Let it sit for a few minutes, then use a soft-bristled brush or sponge to scrub the mat. Rinse it thoroughly with water and let it air dry.
- Magic eraser: A magic eraser can be used to remove tough stains and debris from your mat. Simply dampen the eraser and gently scrub the mat in a circular motion. Rinse the mat with water and let it air dry.
- Goo Gone: Goo Gone is a commercial cleaning product that can help remove adhesive residue from your mat. Apply a small amount to a lint-free cloth and rub the mat gently in a circular motion. Rinse the mat with water and let it air dry.
Here are some things to note:
These method can practically work on any brand cutting mat similar to the Cricut brand.
Avoid using harsh chemicals, abrasive sponges or scrubbers, or high heat to clean your Cricut cutting mat, as these can damage the surface and affect its adhesiveness.
Before using any alternative cleaning method, be sure to test it on a small area of the mat to make sure it doesn’t damage the surface or affect its adhesiveness.
