Use & Care – ZOID™ Cutting Mats
Here are some key tips to help care for your mat and to help extend the life of your mat:
Never roll or fold your mat, as this can warp the mat, which is extremely difficult, if not impossible to get back to a flat surface. Avoid storing the mat in direct sunlight (including in a car on a sunny day!) or against a hot surface. Don’t iron or put hot food or drinks on your mat. When cutting, try to cut on different sections of the mat, as regular use of one line will create grooves and, eventually, will leave marks on your mat. Never pierce the surface of the mat with pins, utility or art knives, as this can cause damage.
It’s important to care for your mat in order to extend its self-healing properties. From time to time, ensure that you remove the loose threads or lint pieces that can stick to the mat when you make a cut. Using a soft eraser or a soft brush will help lift and remove this fuzz from the cuts. Use a gentle scrubbing motion to loosen the threads; scrubbing too hard can damage the mat.
If you do spill something onto your mat, a mix of gentle liquid soap and cool water with a soft non-abrasive cloth should clean up the mess. Ensure you never use alcohol or other harsh chemicals, which can damage the surface of your mat.
Moisturizing your mat will help extend its life as well. To moisturize the mat, place it flat in a container (a bathtub can work for larger mats). Use a ¼ cup of vinegar to each gallon of cool water (always use cool water – warm or hot water can warp your mat!) and ensure the mat is submerged in the solution (this could take up to 4-5 gallons of cool water). Submerge the mat for 20 minutes. With a soft brush and some gentle liquid soap, you can brush some of the more stained spots or stuck threads as well. Allow your mat to air-dry, ensuring that it remains flat while drying.
