Does anyone genuinely enjoy doing the dishes? Whether it's the unpleasant sight of crusty food-coated pans, suspicious-looking soapy water, or a jam-packed sink, it's one of those activities that we all put off, but know we eventually will have to get done. But even after hand washing and scrubbing, you still have to get spend the time soaking up all that water with a dish towel, or waste a handful of paper towels to completely dry everything before storing it away. But if you're looking for a convenient and time-saving fix to rest your dishes without soaking your entire counter, or having to spend time manually drying every dish you own, we've found just the item for you. Amazon's bestselling dishmat is only $11, and shoppers say it replaces the need for paper towels.
Measuring 18-inches by 16-inches, this unassuming drying mat is one absorbent little square. It's the bestseller in its category, with a cushioned microfiber build that absorbs up to four times its weight in water, replacing the need for a run-of-the-mill dishrack. It'll soak up every last drop of water from your pots, pans, drinkware, and serveware, while quickly drying your dishes and keeping your countertops dry. But this compact item isn't just for drying dishes — you can place it under blenders, coffee makers, and food processors to protect your counters from scuffs, scratches, and leaks, or opt to place it under a dishrack for maximum absorbency. Plus, it's reversible, foldable, and machine-washable, making it easy to store away and clean.
