First I want to thank everyone who commented and gave advice on my first thread;
( http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-148332-1.htm )
about my stinky skunk smelling cutting mat and my request for help. You guys were wonderful.
This is what I did.
I took 1 pint of peroxide, 1/4 cup of baking soda and 1 teaspoon of Dawn dish detergent. I mixed it up really well and covered the mat with it. I let it dry for 1 hour.
Then I did it all over again and put it on the other side, same process.
Then I put it in the tub and showered it off. Then I put water in the bathtub, enough to cover the mat, put just about 1/4 cup of white vinegar in the water stirred it up.
I put the mat in the tub and let it soak for an hour, then rinsed it off again.
I hung it from my porch overhang and waited till it dried before sticking my nose real close and taking a wiff.
Well I must say a big "Thank You" to everyone because the smell is gone. I hope forever!!!!
I thought after all that the mat would have faded but not at all. It seems as good as new without the stinky skunk smell.
Thanks guys now I can go back to using my big green mat instead of my smaller Wal-Mart cutting mat.
