|self-healing mat soaking in a tub of tepid water|
It was recommended that the mat be flat, but my large mat did not fit in the tub, so I was cautious to keep both edges in the water and carefully removed the mat from the tepid water after about fifteen minutes.
Once out of the tub, I gave the mat a good scrub with Murphy's Oil soap, as explained in the following response that I found on the OLFA site.

Other maintenance is recommended for the mats:
Will I soak my mats again? Yes, probably a couple of times a year just for preventative maintenance, especially since I live in a dry climate.
What maintenance do you do on your self-healing mats?
