Play Mat

Caring for your play mat

Before placing your mat on the floor, clean and dry the area completely. Be sure to clean your Little Nomad Play Mat before first use.

To clean your play mat, use a sponge or cloth with mild soap and water and dry the mat completely. We ask that you refrain from using abrasive cleaning solutions like window cleaner, floor cleaner, acetone or alcohol. Using such cleaners may cause permanent damage to your play mat.

For smaller spills, wipe them up as they happen with a dry cloth. While most spills can wipe up easily with our cleaning instructions, cases of extreme dirt, paint spills and other heavily pigmented items may stain your mat and should be avoided. Please do not clean your mat with a power vacuum.

We know our play mats look a lot like rugs, but they’re not! Please refrain from soaking play mat tiles or using large amounts of water or cleaning solution on your mat. And always be sure to dry your mat completely after cleaning so you don’t allow any moisture to get trapped underneath.

How to best use your Mat

Use your play mat in any room you play! Our play mats make a great alternative to rugs in any space you need extra comfort and padding.

We recommend setting up your play mat on hard flooring or low-pile carpet. You can anchor the play mat against a wall or with a heavy toy basket, but heavy furniture can leave indentations in the mat and should be avoided. If you prefer to use the mat in the center of the room, we suggest a standard size (4x6 or 6x8) non-slip rug pad.

Standing Mat

Caring for your Standing Mat

Before placing your mat on the floor, clean and dry the area completely.

To clean your Nama Standing Mat, use a sponge or cloth with one of the recommended cleaning solutions below and dry the mat completely. The best way to keep your mat looking new is to clean your mat regularly and avoid using abrasive cleaning solutions like window cleaner, floor cleaner, acetone or alcohol. Power vacuums should also not be used to clean your standing mat as they can damage the surface & edges.

For smaller spills, wipe them up as they happen with a dry cloth (the longer a spill sits, the more likely it is to stain!) While most spills can wipe up easily with our cleaning instructions, cases of extreme dirt, paint spills and heavily pigmented food or drink items may stain the fabric layer of your mat and should be avoided.

Here are a few cleaners we recommend!

  1. Dish soap & water, 1% solution (1/2 teaspoon per cup of water)
  2. Unscented castile soap & water, 15% solution (2.5 tablespoon per cup of water)
  3. White vinegar & water, 8% solution (1.5 tablespoons per cup of water)
  4. All-purpose cleaner, use in moderation

After unpacking your mat, you may notice small wrinkles on the outside edges/top surface of the mat. These are normal and should disappear within 48 hours of placing the mat on a flat surface.

How to best use your Mat

Use your Nama Standing Mat in the spaces you stand most, like the kitchen sink, stove, in the laundry room, or at your standing desk! While it may be tempting to put one in literally every room of your house, standing mats should not be used in the bathroom as they become slippery when wet.

To keep your mat in place, we recommend anchoring your mat against a wall, cabinet or island. If you find your mat is moving around on slick flooring, you can affix additional rug gripper stickers to the back of your mat (apply to each corner). These can be found online or at many local home-goods stores.

Tumbling Mat

Caring for your Tumbling Mat

Before placing your mat on the floor, clean and dry the area completely. Be sure to clean your tumbling mat before first use.

To clean your tumbling mat, use a sponge or cloth with mild soap and water and dry the mat completely before using or stowing away. The best way to keep your mat looking new is to clean it using only the products recommended below. We ask that you refrain from using abrasive cleaning solutions like window cleaner, floor cleaner, acetone or alcohol. Using such cleaners may cause permanent damage to the printed cover of the mat.

For smaller spills, wipe them up as they happen with a dry cloth. While most spills can wipe up easily with our cleaning instructions, cases of extreme dirt, paint spills and other heavily pigmented items (like kids paints, crayons or brightly colored food and drinks) may stain your mat and should be avoided. Please do not clean your mat with a power vacuum.

Here are a few cleaners we recommend!

  1. Dish soap & water, 1% solution (1/2 teaspoon per cup of water)
  2. Unscented castile soap & water, 15% solution (2.5 tablespoon per cup of water)
  3. White vinegar & water, 8% solution (1.5 tablespoons per cup of water)
  4. All-purpose cleaner, use in moderation

The water-resistant faux leather cover is designed to withstand all kinds of messes, but we do not recommend removing the foam insert as it can be difficult to replace. Please do not machine wash your tumbling mat or tumbling mat cover.

How to best use your Mat

Unfold and have fun! You can use your tumbling mat wherever your kids are most active. Our tumbling mats are super portable, and designed with a memory foam layer on top of a sturdy base foam layer to cushion all of their big moves. We recommend layering our tumbling mats with our play mats for extra padded – and extra comfy – playtime.

Tumbling mats are 4’x6’ while laid flat, and can be folded into 4’x1.5’ to be tucked away with ease. To keep your mat in place, you can anchor it against a wall or piece of furniture. If you find your mat is moving around on slick flooring, we suggest a small non-slip rug pad.
