Most of us that quilt or sew frequently know to take care of our quilting/sewing machines and many long time quilters know when to change the blade on their rotary cutters, take your scissors to be sharpened, etc..
very few of us probably recognize the need to give our cutting mats a
warm bath once in awhile. That is correct, I said to give our cutting
mats a bath, as in place it into the bath tub.
