Quick Tip Tuesday

Good morning everyone!   I just wanted to take a few minutes and talk about the Cricut tools.  For me the number one tool is the spatula. I use this tool more than all the other tools combined.  My spatula gets pretty sticky from the mat residue.  So my tip today is to use a product called Goo Gone! It is fabulous and removes the stickiness with very little effort.  I also put a dab on a paper towel and clean the mat roller wheels in the machine.  Hope this helps! Happy Crafting Pam

  1. I, too, find that the Goo Gone takes care of all the gummed-up tools I have, from the spatula, to the scissors I use to split adhesive tape into even-thinner widths. Thank you for the tip on running it through the roller wheels--who would've thought?! LOL

  2. Thank you for the info on using Goo Gone to clean the Cricut rollers--who knew?! I use Goo Gone for cleaning a gooey accumulations on my scissors, too, which tend to stick after cutting through tape adhesive, etc.
