I finally went and got The Mat and I love it!! However, I have a stupid question. How (or do you even) wash it after use? Soap and water? Water?
Nothing on the website or in the video.
I don't really think you want to "wash" it. One of the points of use is that it gets "conditioned" with the smear of crisco and repeated use. If you wash it, that defeats the purpose and you start all over with every use.
I only use one piece of The Mat to roll on. I just wipe it down with a paper towel when I'm finished.
I love my Mat. After use, I simply wipe it down with a soft clean paper towel, roll it and store it. I saw a video some time ago where I believe she said you can, if needed, wash it with soap and water---I don't remember how to find it again. She discussed some of the issues that weren't addressed in her first video. Perhaps someone on here can guide you to that video. I'm sure you'll get some replies, as this is a popular topic.
I just wipe it down also.
I found it, the video. This might answer some of your questions.
They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.
