Version 1.5 of the Magnetic Fly Bench utilizes a new printable substrate for the magnet label. This substrate is gloss polyester and stands up to spills quite well. Tests have show that water leaves no trace. Dark liquids like coffee, beer, soft drinks, etc. can leave a stain but, the label will remain intact once dry.
Should you spill a drink or other liquid we recommend that you blot the spill and then simply let the surface dry. Wiping the spill, especially with a dark liquid, runs the risk of spreading a stain.
We recommend that you use a soft dry cloth for cleaning.
The Magnetic Fly Bench IS NOT a cutting mat. Cutting on the surface will cause permanent damage.
