It’s time to learn about getting a Cricut mat clean, and cleaning a Cricut. If you have a Cricut machine and you use it pretty frequently, you probably have the same problem a lot of Cricut users face: that cutting mat gets dirty, fast! Maybe yours is covered with fabric bits and tiny paper scraps. Maybe the kids used it as a placemat. Maybe you tend to eat crackers and craft at the same time. No matter the cause of the grime, cleaning your Cricut mat doesn’t have to be a big chore. Here are some cleaning tips that will help you clean it up before your next project.
1. What You’ll Need
Whether your Cricut mat is the light grip, strong grip, fabric grip, or standard grip variety, you will only need one simple tool to get it clean: a lint roller. But if you don’t have one of those handy, you can use some packing tape wrapped around your fingers. With a lint roller, you might go through a couple of them, depending how many sheets there are and how dirty your mat is.
