Mat should be boiled, to sterilize, before each use.
After use, rinse in cold water to remove any curd/cheese, then wash with not water and a neutral alkaline cleanser or dairy wash. Commercial detergents are not recommended.
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.
