Not sure if this has been asked before. couldn't find anthing in search about it. My close up pad several creases and bends in it. How can I flatten it out so it will be smooth and flat to the table again?

Proper care of our props is very important to the performing arts. You did not mention who's pad you own, as they are not all the same and their are many suppliers.

I left my large pad rolled in a plastic bag, and over 15 years it fell apart. Time for a new one. So I suggest you always store them flat. I have a 25 year old Johnson products pad, I trimmed to the inside of my breif case and it it still functioning very well. So I would say to store them flat in a case of some kind.

Put the mat under some heavy books to help get it flat again. As for the creases, have you tried ironing them out?

The new foam that is produced today is not nearly as good as the old days. It all just falls apart over time. That is why if you keep your car more then 5 years you have to replace the head liner on the inside and visor material. The foam backing crumbles to nothing.

The same for the close up pads. The foam between the mat and material will not last. As I posted earlier it separated compelely.
