A Quickie to Make Your Mats Re-Sticky

About a year and a half ago (Dec. 2010), I posted a long YouTube video on how to recondition your Cricut mats. I spent hours first prepping my mats: scraping and removing old glue. I tested various products to do this ... and then had to reapply glue to get them re-sticky. That meant I purchased oodles of products and spent lots of time.

No more.  How wise I've become with the help of fellow crafters! 

Today, I'm here to show you in actual time (in 4 minutes!) how to clean and resticky your mat, using just one product and a foam brush (ok, and water).  Here's the video:

I used Aleene's Tack It Over and Over Repositionable Glue.

How cool is that??? I use this glue on my Rubber stamps, but would never even think about to use on the mats. Thank you so much for the Tip.

Love this! I have about 4-5 "old" Cricut mats and I have reconditioned them over and over with zig glue, but this is so much easier. Thanks!
