Any one have any ideas for cleaning basting spray off of the cutting mat?  My 6-year old grandson saw me spray basting a placemat and decided to help me out...he grabbed some fabric scraps and started basting them with the spray on my cutting mat.  I've tried nylon scrubbies with mild detergent and even used some 409 type cleaner, but the stickiness just isn't going away.

You might try an acetone based substance but do it on a small spot first -- finger nailpolish remover.  I don't know what the mats are made of, and the acetone may damage the surface, but acetone cuts most glues.

They do make a spray to remove overspray from the basting spray.   Also you might try some WD40.  It removes petroleum based products and sticky "stuff".

Karla, Goof Off will take most anything off, it leaves a greasy substance behind but it is easily cleaned with soap and water. I would try it on the back in a corner first just in case but I've never had it ruin anything.
