I absolutely love my Slice hands-free kit. It really does make Slicing that much more enjoyable and with a better end result! When spraying the mat with the repositionable spray adhesive, I’ve found the following tip can help, so I wanted to share it with you today.
I love having a sticky Slice mat but I do not like sticky fingers! So I cover the edges of the mat with masking tape before I spray, and just about ¼ in all the way around on the mat itself (to the thick black line). I know I won’t be cutting right up to that edge, so I know that it’s not going to make a difference to the performance of my Slice. However, where it really saves time is when it comes to cleaning the mat – no sticky on the edges to remove!
This is what the mat looks like with the masking tape:
It can also be helpful to run a fingernail gently in the groove between the edge of the mat and the glass board, just to make sure no spray gets in there.
Then spray your board!
(OK I’ll confess: the person who actually sprays my Slice mat is my husband, whose hands you see in these pictures… J )
Once it’s sprayed, you can remove the tape, then the edges will still be smooth and not sticky, and it means less cleaning next time you need to respray.
