I use peel-and-stick vinyl tiles on all of the work surfaces in my home shop, especially cutting areas. The smooth surface makes cleanup so much easier! From sawdust to glass shards, the tiles make cleanup a cinch. — Carol Cordero
Vinyl is also great for cleaning up liquid spills, as it prevents the mess from soaking into the surface. We covered a plywood-topped cart in The Family Handyman workshop, and the adhesive-backed tiles were very easy to work with. Compared to the rough plywood, the tiles make the cart much easier to wipe clean with a dry or wet rag after any project.
