I am inclined to make a mess when scrapbooking, so I was delighted to find this product. The description stated that everything just wipes right off. I decided to purchase it just to see if it was something that would be beneficial to me. I couldn't be more pleased. It is a nice size and everything truly does just wipe right off. I have not even needed a damp cloth. Glue, paint, pen markings, etc have all just rubbed off when I run my fingers over it. It is truly a table saver! I scrap in a group, so I'll bet everyone of them will end up buying one too!!
