    Mats

    I'm trying to make my mats sticky again and having mixed luck.
    I washed one which cleaned it nicely but didn't restore the stickyness at all.
    I cleaned one with a glue remover then sprayed with restickable glue which is ok, not that sticky but not bad.
    Anybody tried to do this with good results?
    Thanks

    Hi bobble. I only use 3M spray - a bit dearer but worth it. Nothing else works as well.
    Yes - wash the mats, let them dry thoroughly before respraying. Only put a little on - you can always add another spray if you feel it is not enough.

    Thanks.
    I'm hoping that one day they'll invent a cutting machine that won't need sticky mats.

    Don't think that will happen if you're cutting card because all card has got varying amounts of fiber. I used to use spray but I use a Zig jumbo 2 way glue pen/stick now

    Me too, I find zig pens are the best way.

    I know but it's a crazy dream of mine. I used to have one of those little cutters, the name escapes me, but it cut from above and used a glass plate but that was with cartridges.

    Also do you clean the mat before you use the Zig pen? Thanks.
