How do I wash my mat?
The hose off method is the easiest way + it's fun, so the kids might even do the washing for you.
The 'hose off' method
Simply place your mat on the grass, spray with the hose, add a small amount of dishwashing liquid or mild detergent and then hose off
The dishwashing liquid is a degreaser, so is particularly good at removing any food residue. If your mat has a few food marks, we recommend working the dishwashing liquid into these areas.
Don't forget to dry your mat in the shade and store when completely dry.
Our mats prefer the hose off method, however they are machine washable on a cold hand-wash cycle only with a mild detergent. Ensure the spin function on your machine is off & double check the hand wash or delicate cycle is set to cold. Hot water and a spin cycle may damage your mat.
Extra Protection - Scotch Guarding
To get even more longevity out of your mat and to save you washing it as frequently. You can apply scotch guard fabric + upholstery protector to your mat.
All mats purchased after May 2021 have a waterproof top layer so scotch guarding is not necessary.
Storing your mat
Please ensure your mat is completely dry before storing. When you get back from the beach, simply shake your mat and hang in the shade to dry before packing away. If there are food spills from your picnic, ensure the area has been wiped clean prior to storing.
