I am sure the answer to this question is on here somewhere but i really don't have a whole lot of time to read through all of the cricut forums.

how do you get the sticky stuff off of the regular mats that you buy for the regular cricuts? i was going to purchase one of the cake mats but the shipping costs more than the mats.

thanks in advance

You can buy the regular cake mats at most craft stores that sell cricut products - no need to purchase online. I wouldn't recommend using a chemical solvent on something you are going to prepare food products on.

soak the mat in some hot soapy water, regular dish detergent should take the stick off.

IF that doesn't work for you, you can try some goo be gone that will work.

I read somewhere that they used their finger to "rub" it off.... then washed with hot water to get the remaining out...

I used Dawn Power Dissolver on mine. Sprayed on, let sit a few minutes and then scrubbed it with a scrub brush. All gone icon_smile.gif And since it is made for dishes, it is safe to use to clean the mats.

Here's a link for the product (Walmart carries it):

Hope that helps!

Just got my cricut cake today in the mail and had to try it out (with a little help from my 7 and 9 year olds) and I already cut the mat and fondant. Finally got it to work fine on low ... with no shortening ... yeah! Do you think I will be ok using a mat that has been cut into - or do I need to now buy a new one?
