Your post (below) came at the right moment. I am about to begin building
another K2 and wondered whether my anti-static pad, now more than five years
and ten Elecraft kits old, needs some sort of cleaning to maintain its
properties; and, if so, what to clean it with – or maybe to replace it.
I have looked and found no brand name on it anywhere, though maybe there was
one that disappeared when I cut the mat to fit my workspace. I believe it was
one of those recommended by Elecraft, but I have no record of it.
Is there a generic cleaner, or would it be safer to begin with a new one?
Forgive my asking this on the reflector rather than by private e-mail; but I
suspect there may be some other old mats like me out there . . .

. . . Testing a mat requires specialized equipment, so we recommend that you
choose an anti-static mat
that comes with published resistance specifications and clean it as
recommended by the manufacturer. . . .
