Hi all,
I have a large American Crafts Cutup Self-healing mat - I've only used it a few weekends to scrap - and leave it out on my desk to protect it when I craft.
I get adhesive from my "permanent" adhesive roller things (tombow brand, etc.) on them when I scrap and it's left sticky grey gunk all over the mat.

Does anyone know how to get this stuff off - and not ruin the mat in the process?

Thanks in advance.

I start with a baby wipe and if that doesn't completely remove the gunk, I bring out the Undu.

Love me some Un-do. It works great to clean a mat.

Hand sanitizer or a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser does the trick for me!

I use a baby wipe first and if that fails, rubbing alcohol.

I think Goo-gone is similar. I would vote for the rubbing alcohol. I picked up a box of little first aid packets (at Dollarama) and use an individual one to wipe down my mat. I do start with a baby wipe.

I do rubbing alcohol and then break out the UN-DO.
