    The netting for under skirts (can't remember what it's called) works good, but so do those fluffy bath scrubber things... I can't remember what they're called either... :lol: SUPER FINE sandpaper works well on them once in a while. (Can't remember who makes it though... :lol: )

    crinoline netting is tougher than tulle. I think tulle might be too soft. You can buy the crinoline netting for about $1 per yard at Walmart.

    Yes!! Tulle!! (Hang on to your memory as long as you can!! :lol: ) No, not loofah sponges. The ones that look like they're made of colored tulle, (Little girls usually try to get us to buy one of every color each & every trip to the store.... mine do at least... & they're teens!!!) :lol:

    You know what I mean though... I just hope everyone else can figure it out as well as you did!!

    I just know them as mesh shower puffs, but I just read the back of my shower gel, and they use the term "body pouf". Sounds like a highfalootin way to get you to spend more money. :wink:

    I'm fairly suren my rotary was used to make these grim slashes on the mat. I'd been cutting fabric for her all afternoon and the cutter was cutting well. Time to go and she asked me if I'd like to leave everything there overnight. I could tell she was very interested in what I was doing and itched to get her hands on the doing. I asked her if she was going to cut anything that night and she said no. I knew she needed some supervision before cutting. The next morning she told me she had been bad and what had happened. Deep, deep slashes. I've tried all the suggestions you ladies had and nothing touches the problem - the cuts are too deep. Next I'm going to try the Fiskars Co. and I'll let you know the result. Thanks for that suggestion. Not a matter of life or death but I thought it would be nice to remedy this but I'll turn the mat over or buy a newbie. Back later and you kids are the mostest! :)

    Thanks - I've tried everything but the sandpaper so far. I'll give this a good try. I did email the Fiskars Co just now and we shall see if they have a remedy. I'll post it when and if I get one. I do so appreciate all the response. :-) :-) :-)

    marmar,

    Mats can be damaged. I've used mine for years now and it is beginning to catch threads. They are 'self-healing' to a point. Some notions catalogues sell round mat 'buffers' or reconditioners. They are about $9, but the bath scrubbies work well as does a scrubby-backed sponge.

    Mine was called a "lather builder". Wonder who gets paid to think up these names?
