Default has any ever recovered a Cut n Press board

I have stained my June Tailor Cut N Press, Have tried to clean it with alcohol, Dawn, dishwashing detergent, Oxyclean, hydrogen peroxide, & probably some others I can't remember. It looks clean then when it dries, the water marks are terrible even after I rinse it in running waters repeatedly. Has anyone tried recovering them, how did you do it, and does it work?

I have not tried to recover one - and I have an ironing board cover looks that way that says "do not wash"

If it is not staining your fabrics as you are trying to press them, I would continue to use it - even though it looks "unappealing" now.

If there is enough fabric along the edge, I would cut a piece of the silver ironing board fabric, iron under the edges to match the size of the cut and press and hand stitch it down. I wouldn't use muslin to put on a new top as the stain may come through it in time.

I recovered one of those for a friend. She pulled the cutting side of it off (it's glued on). We covered it and glued it back down. Good as new!

Wow, think I might try this, have washed & rinsed till I'm blue in the face, it looks good when wet & as soon as it starts to dry it has nasty water marks about 3" on all edges. I've tried drying it fabric side down on a towel, hanging it in the sun, switching which side is up, soaked it in clean, hot water in the sink, last resort is ripping it off the cutting side & recovering it. Worse thing that can happen is I ruin it and have to buy another one, which I will want to do it if this last attempt doesn't work. It's the one I take to quilting guild & retreat & I won't use it the way it is. Thanks.

I put a loose piece of muslin on it and tuck it under. Easy to replace to wash the muslin.

This is what I did. I used the tracing wheel to roll the edges in and it tucked the muslin in tight. I had about 1" overhang to tuck. A friend to me to cover it when it was new and I'm so glad I did.

following up, would not recommend wetting this down, under the top fabric is a layer of foam, stapled & glued to a sheet of 3/8" fiberboard, (it was that that was causing the stain after washing) glued to the cutting map with HEAVY glue that is impossible to get off, tried alcohol, WD40, heat, solvent, scraping, waaay too much work. not to have anything work. Now have the top washed, still have the original stain, haha, the foam is ok, the fiberboard is warped, the cutting mat has a heavy layer of glue. It's all headed to the landfill & I'm looking for a 60% off coupon to Joann's. Thanks everyone for trying.
