Cricut Mat Lesson Learned
I have two mats. One is designated for cutting my chipboard and the other is designated to cutting my papers. I needed to clean my chipboard cutting mat, so I did the usual cleaning with warm water and a light scrub. Well, I really wanted to use the mat NOW and not wait on it to dry. So, I decided to use my hair dryer to speed up the drying process. I was a bit concerned what the heat would do to the mat, but I figured it was at least worth the try. I have additional mats, but trying to conserve them the best that I can. I am sure that those of you who are pros at using the cricut, cleaning mats, etc. already know this, but the blow dryer really did make the mat a lot more sticky than just air drying. So, from now on, I will be using the blow dryer not only to speed up the drying process but to also make the mat more sticky.
