If needed, soak mat in a wash solution before cleaning.
If mat retains any odor after cleaning, hang outdoors in the sun, this is the traditional method used in Europe.

Work well. A little difficult to clean .
Very pleased with this mat. Looks way more durable than other products, yet priced the same. Drains very well when air-drying cheese.
The reed mat is actually for sushi rolling but works well-letting air get to the bottom of my farmhouse cheddar. Multi-tasking products are awesome.
