So its a beautiful day outside and your children beg to eat lunch ‘picnic style’.  Great!  You send them out to the backyard with a Mountain Mat, a pile of sandwiches, and they set up.  Of course Leo the cat and Ruff the stuffed dog are invited to the picnic.  Leo even gets a bowl of cat food to munch on.

While munching away on the tasty sandwiches, your children come to the realization that they are thirsty.

And your children, thoughtful little humans that they are, decide not to bother you to get them drinks.

So they go bring their favorite juice to the picnic.

Grape Juice.

They could have chosen juice boxes, but they went for the entire bottle of grape juice.

What could possibly go wrong.

Against all odds, juice isn’t spilled while pouring!

But within moments of the first sip, the youngest child knocks her juice over.  Of course.

Honestly, grape juice should only be sold in juice boxes.

Now – if this spill were on any other picnic blanket — we’d be dealing with a serious stain issue.

But not for a Mountain Mat!  Wet Spills (even grape juice) are no match for MOUNTAIN MAT! (please read that last part with super-hero voice)


STEP 1: Call for Mom.

STEP 2: Get a hose and rinse that spill right off!

Ta-Da!  Clean!

Now, just lay out the mat to air dry and its good as new!

So easy – you could even skip STEP 1.
