I purchased 2 of these to put on top of small end tables to keep the tops from getting water stains or scratched. These are non slip mats so I knew compared to the regular placemats I was currently using that kept moving around, these would work better. Since the tables have tops that are larger than normal sized placements, I knew these would be oversized so could cut them down (very thin material) to fit the tops exactly, Well, the cutting them down part was true, as they cut easily and fit the tops perfectly. However the part I don't like is that because of the type of material they are made from, they are very difficult to keep clean (very rubbery material that seems to collect dust and stuff). Also if you set a water glass on it that sweats, it will leave a mark. Now, if you take a very damp soapy cloth you can wipe them off, but the water marks still seem to stay. I should say that the end tables in question do get a lot of use. They are in our family room by the chairs my husband and I sit it to watch late movies etc so lots of stuff ends up on them. It is not that you can't clean them off, just seems to me there is probably something that may work better. On the positive side, they do stay in place and keep the table tops from getting wet or damaged so it was not a total loss.
