    Think you just wash in warm soapy water rinse and allow to dry. Could be wrong though.

    Agree with Sandra although there are several video's on Youtube showing how to clean and re-tack your mat

    I make sure all old bits of paper are off the matt.
    Wipe the matt with a baby wipe.
    Let dry 8 hours.
    Re-stick with ZIGG 2 way liquid glue (the one with the thick tip).
    Let dry 8 hours.
    Be sure to re-cover with the blue cover from the original.

    Hello. I cleaned my mat again washing with washing up liquid and scrapped it a sink drainer.
    Well the gunge that came off the mat was amazing.Allowed to dry over night. Then cellotape the edges with slow tack tape.Then applied
    the Zigg 2 way using the thick applicator. Then left over night to dry. Have a new mat.
