The Original Dish Drying Mat REVIEW

The Original™ Dish Drying Mat

Did you know?
Hand washing dishes uses less water than conventional automated dish washers.
Using the dish drying mat also conserves energy by allowing dishes to air dry.

Do you hate messy spills or foul odors from using a towel or other drying mats?
Well i did. My sink is very small and i have limited counter space so doing dishes isn't really fun at all for me.

Before i sampled The Original Dish Drying Mat complimentary of influenster for testing purposes, i would use a dish towel for my extra dishes that wouldn't fit in my dish holder.

 I HATED the smell it would leave in my cups if i laid them upside down to dry.

I've tried a few mats and products and they just didn't cut it for me so i was a bit skeptical.

I instantly fell in love with this drying mat. Its not too big and its machine washable!
The first time i did my dishes the cups and dishes dried very fast and it didn't leave any odors or spills my counter

Here is a picture of my "The Original Dish Drying Mat"

If you need more room don't worry they offer one in an XL size (18" x24", for only 7.99)
original size is only 4.99. Either one is a great deal in my opinion!
