Well to clean them use a paper towel and some hand sanitizer. Put the sanitizer on your block and clean with a paper towel. When it looks clean put It under the water to wash off the hand sanitizer. And WALLA you have a clean block.
You can also use this technique to clean your craft mat.

Meet the love of my life

Hi everyone, I wanted to introduce my husband Vern., the love of my life. I met Vern on a blind date that 2 of my friends set up for me and we hit it off, so much so that six months after we started dating Vern asked me to marry him. Of course I said yes and fifteen happy years later here we are. He is the kindest, gentlest loving man i have ever known.he is a hard worker (but sloppy at time), my husband is the best husband ever.
Love you honey!
