back to life

I rescued this Fiskars self-healing cutting mat from a dumpster (it was at the top). Armed with baking soda, vinegar, dish soap, green scrubby, elbow grease and 20 minutes time, I brought it mostly back to its' former glory. This 23 x 35" self-healing cutting mat new is between $36-$45!!!
Whoever owned it before used it more as a dropcloth for paint, gluing, and cutting. I'm sure it was well-loved. I think they just didn't think the stains would come out. I was able to bring it bring it back to life. Yeah!!!
I can't wait to use this for upcoming projects with fabric and as a table cover for messy projects with the boys.
