Cleaning & care

Looking after your Munchkin & Bear play mat is super easy, we're also Mums so know you don't need any extra chores!

On a daily basis we recommend you use water and a microfibre cloth. 

  • There are some brilliant ones on the market which tackle the bacteria worries too without any chemicals going near your little ones such as the e-cloth which is recommended by Allergy UK

Small spills, kitchen roll does the trick. 

You can happily use a gentle detergent mix with warm water if you want to do a deeper clean - a soft bristle brush in circular motion will loosen any dirt dried so you can wipe it off and dry it afterwards. 

A quick brush (or vacuum on lower setting) gets those crumbs and dust up super quickly. 

If you've used a lot of water, don't forget to dry it with a towel to make sure it isn't left damp.  

Do not use cleaners with bleach, alcohol or citrus oils in them as these can cause discolouration / remove the colour or pattern from your mat. 

Please avoid using baby wipes to clean the mats.  Some brands may damage the play mat over time. (It has been suggested that baby wipes are effective enough to remove tar!) 


Quick and simple to fix


Is there anything else we should be careful of? 

If you plan to put heavy furniture on top of your play mat, be aware the memory foam may be affected. Pets - we don't know your animals so you'll need to judge if they might damage the surface with sharp claws, but many of our customers' pets love the play mats.  

Is it okay to have underfloor heating? 

Yes, in fact here at HQ we have unfloor heating so it has been thoroughly tested! 

Can I take my play mat outside? 

Of course, while they are designed to be left down within your home, they can be rolled and moved outside easily - particularly the medium play mat.  Just keep an eye on anything sharp when you put it down so the waterproof surface doesn't get punctured.   Please be aware they shouldn't be left outside or in prolonged sunlight which over time could cause fading. 

Is it easy to roll & move my play mat? 

Your play mat arrives with velcro straps - if you keep them then if you want to roll your mat up and secure it or move it you can do it simply.
