    The fleece or batting is what gets my board! I will be trying these tips.
    Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly

    I use a damp cloth to go over the mat. Then I use very very fine sandpaper and it takes everything up and smooths it all out when I feel knicks in the mat. Otherwise I use the Mr. Clean Erasers and wipe gently over the mat. I have had my mat for a couple years now and there are no gouges in though either. I only press as hard as I need to in order to cut the fabric.

    This board is so great. I had no idea my mat liked water. This week they are going to get a treat or would that be a treatment! Anyway I'm sure they and my blades will be much happier. Thanks for the info.
