The covering film makes the cardboard mats easy to clean and they can be used many times. Cut a piece that is about 5 cm larger than the box on all directions. The film can be difficult to get on smoothly. It requires a lot of patience and more than one pair of hands. The self adhesive covering film will crease, but a few small creases is okey. Fold the excess plastic over and stick it to the back.
