I have been promising you all a way to clean your mats, that is going to leave you standing in awe!
Today I have that video for you and I have to say, –you are going to think I have gone crazy–but, then you are going to try this for yourself–and you are going to want to HUG me!!
It’s okay–I take long distance HUGS!
Also, on another note…I am so excited–because this is my 100th video I have made for you all! It went so fast– and I enjoyed making every single one. If you are newer follower–you can go to my Youtube page to see all of the videos– by clicking on the RED Youtube Heart in the top left corner of my page!
PLEASE NOTE: I am using BRAKE CLEANER not to be confused with BRAKE FLUID
Also, I have been asked a couple of questions– Does your mat smell afterwards? Nope– the smell evaporates from the air, and doesn’t leave any “smell” on your mats.
You might want to tape off the edges of the mat, to keep it from getting sticky on the green parts of the mat. I have to admit, I sometimes do this…and sometimes don’t. :/ I am a pretty good sprayer though–and usually don’t get much on the edges!
And…the spray adhesive I used in the video is something I picked up at CHA– but, you can find the same kind of thing at your local craft store–(I always want something I can go buy–and not have to order and wait for it). Just look for REPOSITIONABLE SPRAY ADHESIVE. 3M/ Scotch makes it, so does Krylon, SLICE and maybe Aleene’s.
***Another question, I have been asked–is does the cleaner leave a residue? It may leave a slick residue, but can easily be wiped off w/ a papertowel. I have sprayed my sticky right on afterwards and been fine. But, for the best result, wipe down w/ dampened papertowel before spraying your adhesive!
