You know those times when you have LOTS and LOTS of dishes and you really want to get them all done? But the dishwasher and the dish drainer are both full so the only option left is a couple of towels on the counter? I’ve been doing that a lot lately, and while it’s not a bad option, I discovered a better one.
I was wandering through Wal-mart the other day and came across a dish drying mat. I’d heard of them but hadn’t ever seen one. I was intrigued so I bought one. And it’s amazing!
When I put dishes on the towel, I have to tip them a little so the inside can dry. Not necessary on the drying mat. The towels also get pretty wet and that makes the counter wet. Not so with the drying mat. And when the dishes are dry or dried and put away, the towels go in the washer. The drying mat just gets folded up and put in the drawer. And when it’s dirty, you just toss it in the washing machine.
I got my drying mat at Wal-mart for $5.97. I got the large size which is 24×18. I wasn’t sure if I was wasting my money or not, but now that I’ve used it several times, I’m sold! This is a great alternative to a towel. You could even use it instead of a dish drainer.
Have you ever used a drying mat? What do you think?
