Cleaning a Silhouette Sticky Mat is an essential part of maintaining the longevity of your cutting mat. When properly cared for, a Silhouette Sticky Mat can last up to two years or longer! Keeping a clean mat is essential in order to get accurate and consistent cuts with your Silhouette machine.
The first step in cleaning a Silhouette Sticky Mat is to remove any large pieces of debris or adhesive residue that has built up on the mat surface. To do this, you can use tweezers to carefully pluck out any large pieces of paper or adhesive that are stuck on the mat. It’s important to be gentle when doing this, as you don’t want to damage the surface of the mat.
Once all of the large debris has been removed, you can use a lint roller or sticky lint roller sheets to remove any smaller pieces of debris that may have been left behind. Be sure to roll the lint roller over the entire surface area of the mat until it has been completely covered and all small bits of debris have been removed.
After all visible debris has been removed from the mat surface, it’s time to move on to deep-cleaning it using an adhesive remover spray. Spray an even layer of adhesive remover onto one side of the mat and let it sit for several minutes before wiping away with a dry cloth or paper towel. You may need to repeat this process several times in order for all residue and buildup to be removed from both sides of your cutting mat.
Cleaning your Silhouette Sticky Mat is essential in order to keep it performing optimally and ensure accurate cuts with your machine. With just a few simple steps – removing large debris, using a lint roller, and deep-cleaning with an adhesive remover spray – you can easily clean and maintain your Silhouette Sticky Mat so it will last you for years!
