It is recommended that you soak your mat from time to time. Just like our skin our self healing mats love moisture.
To soak it, put your mat in a bathtub or large container (would have to be large so it can lay flat) and soak it for 15-20 minutes in a solution of 1/4 cup white vinegar to every gallon of cool water. Do this every so often to help extend its useful life.
If you can’t soak your mat moisten well with a towel soaked in a solution of water and white vinegar.
Then use a squirt of mild dishwashing soap and clean the mat with a soft brush (such as a mushroom brush). A gentle scouring will remove the fibers that get trapped in the cuts preventing the cuts from “healing” and will also extend the life of your mat.
