Influenster VoxBox: The Original Dish Drying Mat Review!

Hey guys! Today, I am guest posting over at Let Them Have Polish! So you have to go check it out! 

I have something a little different for you on the blog today.  I have some products to review from my Influenster VoxBox. What is a VoxBox, you ask? Here is an overview of the Influenster program.

The product I'm reviewing today is called the Original Dish Drying Mat.


Introducing The Original™ Dish Drying Mat

The new solution to the age old tradition of placing dish towels on the counter when hand-washing pots, pans, dishes and glassware. Hardworking and super-absorbent, the Dish Drying Mat protects countertops and dishes, dries fast and stores easily. Discover the exciting range of “The Original” products here.

· Holds 4 times its weight in water
· Cushions delicate dishes and stemware
· Machine washable and highly durable
· Folds and stores easily
· Has multiple uses: try it underneath your dish drying rack in place of the plastic drain board. Place it underneath your appliances (mixer, blender, etc.) to protect your counter top from scratches and scuffs

For best results, allow The Original Dish Drying Mat to thoroughly dry between uses. Frequently machine wash, with like colors, in cold water with a liquid detergent , and before first use. Tumble dry low. Do not iron. Do not use bleach, fabric softener or dryer sheets.

The Original Dish Drying Mat should not be used as a pot holder, oven mitt or hot pad.


Where to Buy

The Original Dish Drying Mat is available exclusively at Bed, Bath & Beyond.
Suggested retail price:  $4.99
*Also available in an Extra Large Size 18” x 24” for $7.99!


What I Thought:
 I have a dishwasher but I do have a lot of old dishes that have to be hand washed so I made dinner as usual and went to work on the dishes. 

This morning when I was putting the dishes away, I noticed that they were all dry (instead of the water that remains when usually placed on a towel or in the sink), and the memory foam of the mat was really great! 

If I had seen this product in the store, I probably wouldn't have purchased it because I didn't think I needed it. But after using it, I would say it's definitely a useful tool to have in the kitchen and I will most likely be buying the larger version, too!

Talk to you soon!
