Default help with cricut issue

I am having trouble with the mat not being sticky and it is tearing my paper, but the mat hasnt been used very much. Has anyone tried to use adhesive spray that is removable on the mat???? Or anything else people have tried. Any suggestions are appreciated.

In the forums section, under "Tool and Product Talk", there is a Cricut FAQ and you can find suggestions there. Good luck

I use a quilt basting spray with excellent results. One can has lasted 4 years so far!

There are several things you can do; but yes, removable spray adhesive does work. Just be sure to mask off the edges and wait for the glue to dry completely before using it. I can usually "re-sticky" my mat 4 or 5 times before I finally have to retire it.

I've heard of people using spray adhesive. I'm too lazy most of the time and I just tape the edges of my paper so that it doesnt come up once my mat has lost its stick. When it is something really detailed i just use more tape lol.
