    I think this should help. Not sure, but check it out. All I did was google it. Get some great tips from google. Also try about.com.

    Mine is so old, I finally covered it and used gorilla glue to glue it back, good as new. Love it.

    Mine was in pretty bad shape. I decided there was nothing to lose by trying to wash it. I used a laundry detergent/water solution and sponged it on. Then I scrubbed it with wet terry cloth. For tough stains I used a scrubbing brush. Then I used my hands to squeeze out all the cleaning solution I could, rinsed under running water and squeezed until it ran clear. I thought of using a rolling pin to squeeze out the water but didn't. After that I hung it outside in the sun to dry. I had thought about re-covering but decided to try this first. It actually came out pretty good.

    Ya know...that's really not a half bad idea.

    I think I'm going to try this on one of my really disgusting boards and see what happens.

    Thanks for the thought. :thumbup:
