How do I clean a straw place mat?

Straw Placemat Cleaning

Straw placemats are an attractive addition to any place setting. If not cleaned properly however, they can turn a festive table into one that looks dull or messy. A sponge dipped in mild detergent, such as the type you use for washing the dishes, will keep the placements clean and fresh. Another solution is to fill a quart jar with warm water and a cup of salt. Dip a sponge or cloth in the liquid and wipe the placemat clean.

I think a straw placemat would make a dandy after dinner snack. And another thing; why Gee and Haw? Why not just say Left and Right, n'est pas?

Water is not good for the straw mats I have. It made the mat curl up. Don't know what to use for grease on the mats.
