These mats are the best! I have used mine over and over and over. I have washed it in mild detergent, rinsed and let it drip dry and it's ready to work for you again.
Pazzles makes so many wonderful products. I love my Pazzles Inspiration electronic cutting machine. I sold my Cricut because I could do so much more with the Pazzles Inspiration.
I highly recommend this mat. You have to sensitive the adhesive prior to first use or your paper will not leave the mat without stripping the glue off it!! Sensitizing the mat can be done by using your palm first instead of paper.
