Step 1: Rinse
Rinsing with warm water helps get off the loose dirt and grime. Imagine you’re doing the dishes essentially.
Step 2: Soap
Use dish soap and lather up your mat. Something like Dawn, that is advertised to cut through grease, is recommended for the best results.
Step 3: Scrub
We like to rub the mat together to scrub on the really dirty spots. Brushes and the like can wear out the mat faster, but they do a better job at removing the built up oils and solvents.
Step 4: Rinse (Again)
Get all the soap off. This can be a time consuming process but it is important so the mat does not have a greasy feel to it.
Step 5: Dry
Hang dry or lay the mat out flat until it's dry. Avoid direct sunlight as this will cause the image to fade over time. A cool dry place will do the job, it should only take a night for the mat to dry out.
