Grove Co. Dish Drying Mat
"I have two of the 15"x23" that I lay out on my counter beside the sink. They look good. They absorb well. They sit MOSTLY flat: because I store them folded in thirds on the same fold lines they showed up with, each of mine have two little ridges all the way across when I lay them down. Doesn't bother me nor detract from the function of the mats. Heck, once they're loaded up with my handwashed dishes, you can't even see the fold places.
And speaking of handwash... I do NOT put these in the washer; when needed, I just swoosh them around right there in the kitchen sink, rinse, squeeze, and hang to dry. The edge binding on mine has not shrunken.
Anyway. I love having these rather than the dish rack we used to use. The rack always looked... Dirty. And cluttery. Ugh. With these drying mats, because I want ti care for them properly and not let them sit around damp - yuck! - I'm compelled to put away the clean dishes and tidy up. Sure, it's just me tricking myself into doing it... But it works!" — Sara L.
