I actually never noticed the grime until I was getting ready to sell the machine, so check yours and see if it needs a cleaning. (Check the blade and mat while you are at it) It's evidently a common issue--even if we are unaware!

A funny little story: When I was starting this blog post, I saw a post with the same title started by a former design team member. (It was left unfinished because she needed photos; she's since left to write a book. Yay for Chelsea!) This let me know that others have the same issue and so I hope the video was helpful to YOU!
Here's what she had written:
Good Morning ScraPerfect Friends! Chelsea here to share a quick and easy clean up of my electronic cutting machine.
Over time, your electronic cutting machine begins to have a build up of sticky residue, dirt and grime. Due to the sticky residue if you were to wipe it with a paper towel your paper towel would just stick to the built up residue and not remove the mess.
To begin, grab your Best Cleaner Ever. What a surprise! If you don't know by now, I will always grab this cleaner first before I attempt any other cleaning product. Why? Because I know for a fact, it will do the job, and do it well. Spray a couple of sprays over the entire area. Let it sit for 2 minutes.
Take a dry piece of paper towel. Begin to rub the area in a circular motion. Right away you can see how the sticky residue and dirt is being lifted instantly.
Don't forget, the Best Cleaner Ever works wonderfully on cleaning your electronic cutting mats for you to re-stick with the Best Glue Ever.
Thanks for stopping by. Let us know what you use the Best Cleaner Ever on over at our facebook page!
