    Angry cleaning the cutting board - ideas?

    Anyone know how to clean up the cutting board of the little cut lines - the grooves where many a piece has been cut on the board? I must have cut dark fabric that left little bits of fabric in the grooves and doesn't seem to clean up.

    I saved a link about the care of Olfa cutting mats since that's what I have. I imagine that applies to other brands, but perhaps others know more. It tells you how to wash it safely and get those fibers out.

    I've heard the Magic Eraser Sponges work. I haven't tried them though, so I can't say for sure.

    I tried the Olfa way in the bathtub but got to say that mat I really cut down hard on - when I was first learning how to quilt and it BROKE in half!!! Of course they are suppose to have some sort of warranty, but who keeps receipts? But, I'm not sure if it was the washing or because of how hard I cut. Be sure it is very dry afterwards before using again and good luck getting those dark fibers out!

    I use a clean used dryer sheet. Just rub across the mat.

    I run my adhesive lint roller brush over it - you can tear off the used sheets and toss until it's as clean as you'd like it to be. I keep a lint roller in my sewing area - if I have to rip anything out I get all the little pieces of ripped out thread with the lint roller, too.

    I keep the lint roller also, if you use it every time you use your cutting mat and after I use the design wall, it keeps up and you really do not have a huge mess to clean. I buy them in bulk at Costco, boy do they come in handy.
