I’ve recently gotten my hands on the new Sink Mats from Norwex. They come in a pack of three different sizes. Each mat also has a different design on them. My first thought was, “Oh! These are so CUTE!!!.” But then my next thought was, “Where in the WORLD would I use these things?” I couldn’t initially come up with a real life purpose for them in my mind. However, once I got my hands on them, I kept finding all sorts of uses for them, and now I need more!
I’m going to show you the different ways I’ve been using my sink mats, share ideas from other consultants, and convince you that you need them in your home too!
My Initial Thoughts on the Norwex Sink Mats
My initial thoughts on these mats was that they were too small. I thought they’d be bigger (size specifications mean nothing to me, ha!) That’s one of the reasons why I didn’t think I’d find many uses for them. I honestly thought, ‘What’s the point?’
Large: 10″ x 8″
Medium: 8″ x 6″
Small: 6″ x 4″
I did really like how they felt though – they are very thick, with a dense, EnviroCloth like feel. And I LOVED that they have a silicone dots on the back, to prevent them from slipping around!
Where and When To Use Them
When I started investigating what other consultants were using these Sink Mats for, I was blown away by all the possibilities!
In The Kitchen
You can choose one or all sizes for your kitchen. The size you choose will depend on what you’re going to place on it. These mats give you that one little ‘extra spot’ for things, like:
- Your freshly washed veggies or fruit
- Bottle Brush
- Under dog and cat dishes
- Dish soap and the dishes that hold your scrubbies
- Freshly washed items, like:
- Bottles and nipples
- Breast Pump Parts
- Water bottles and lids
- Tea strainers, spoons and accessories
- Medicine cups, syringes, and bottles
- Wine Glasses
These mats not only keep wet puddles in the kitchen at bay, but they can help you protect your natural stone countertops! Natural stone countertops get deep set water stains in them if water sits on them, since they’re porous. And once those water stains are set in there, it’s a total pain to get them out! So these Sink Mats are the perfect solution for avoiding that problem.
The medium sized mat is just the right size for your toothbrush! So if you don’t want to lay your toothbrush down on your countertop, you can keep one of these in handy. This is especially helpful for when you travel, and you don’t know how much you can trust the bathroom you’re staying in .
And here’s a great idea I heard from other consultants: This mat is just the right size to dry your Menstrual cup! Genius!!! If any of you currently use a menstrual cup, you are jumping up and down, clapping your hands, aren’t you?! It’s so hard to know what to do with it after you’ve rinsed it and need to lay it somewhere to dry! Not anymore!
The medium sized mat is also perfect for laying your freshly washed make-up brushes on, while you wait for them to dry.
Protect your wooden nightstand! Keep one of these mats on your stand for:
- Water glass
- Tea mug
- Breast pump (for those that are nursing!)
I love that these mats are:
- super absorbant
- quick drying
- won’t slip
But there’s a bonus that I love. They contain our BacLock! This means that the micro silver antibacterial agent in the fibers go to work to self-purify and inhibit odors from bacteria, mold and mildew growth within the cloth, within 24 hours, so that it’s ready to use again!
So what are you waiting for!? Grab your own set of these cute Sink Mats, then come on back here and tell me what you’re using them for!
