Default White Silicone Media Mat Questions

I've ordered one of these mats, not a Waffle Flower mat, but some generic one similar to it and wondered what should not be used on it. I read that a gel plate should not be used as its chemicals interact with the mat and warp it. I also read that some cleaning agents should not be applied - but which type cleaning agents? What would alcohol inks do to the surface? What about alcohol used as a cleaning agent?

I have one from Waffle Flower. I have used alcohol on it to clean it. I often take it to the sink and wash with dish soap. My bright pink ink stained it and the alcohol helped remove a little of it.

I have never used alcohol inks of any kind on mine. I just dabbed it a bit with rubbing alcohol on a piece of cotton over the stain. It didn't damage it in any way, but did lessen the stain.

I think I might not use Stazon inks on it.

Stazon does sound risky. Today I received the mat, and, of course, there are no rules provided as to what medium is a no-no. I guess I will try a sample on the reverse when an issue comes up.

I used Copics today with it, but it was strictly on the paper. I did like how well the cardstock clung to the mat. Now, if only it would keep my markers from running over the lines.

Ugh. I would reach out to them and say no directions came with it and can they tell what mediums/cleaners not to use...

Maybe watch the YTs on the waffle flower version..but it might be a little different...I saw them use a baby wipe on it...

I use my white media mat as much as I need to with a variety of “media” . I am not concerned how stained it gets as long as it doesn’t transfer anything to my next project. My philosophy is to use my media mat unabashedly without worrying about what ink or medium could stain it. Having said that I do clean my stamps well each time I use them. I see that as a different matter.
