    I find that the green mat Cricut sells today are not as sticky nor do they last as long as the (darker) green mats from a few years ago. I only use my mats for standard cardstock and scrapbooking papers, and I cover them with the clear plastic when I’m not using them. Am I doing something wrong? And — holy cow! — those new mats STINK!!

    I have used my friend’s Cricut, and the mat lost its tackiness right away. But I washed it with liquid dish soap and it came right back. Thanks for the tips.

    You can also mask the edges of your mat with painter’s tape and use a spray
    Repositional adhesive to make it sticky again. Wait until your machine warranty is up, as this will not be covered if there are problems. Just make sure no adhesive is on the sides by the guide wheels.
