Product Review: Naturals VoxBox - The Original Dish Drying Mat

copyright Durhamonthecheap - my great The Original Dish Drying Matin my kitchen, out since the VoxBox arrived!
Through my Naturals VoxBox I was lucky enough to have The Original Dish Drying Mat included in my box. I was so happy with the mat, it was the first item that got unpacked and put to use. I did this even before I made the video showing how I opened the box and described the remaining contents of the VoxBox. As you can see from the image above, I use a simple metal dish rack to dry my dishes. I never use my dishwasher, believing that doing dishes by hand is much easier in the environment because I collect the soapy water to water my veggies (keeps the bugs away) and my flower garden (also works against the bugs on my roses). So the waste is much smaller than with the dishwasher.

The picture above shows the various uses of The Original Dish Drying Mat  and while I use it with a dishrack, I have to say that I would not hesitate to put my glasses or expensive stemware on the mat because it is so thick that nothing will get damaged. I can also attest to how quickly it dries the dishes. I used to have paper towel under my dishrack that I changed at least once a week because they got so dirty from being always wet. But since I am using the mat, the counter is always dry, the dishes dry without leaving ugly stains on the counter and the mat still looks brand new. Even if I eventually get some residue from juice (such as grape juice) on the mat, it can be wash in the laundry and air dried.

In conclusion, I am still as ecstatic about The Original Dish Drying Mat as on the day that I found it in my Naturals VoxBox. It does a fantastic job helping in drying the dishes and is great for the environment. I can highly recommend The Original Dish Drying Mat to use instead of relying on a dishwasher to wash and dry your dishes.To find out more about this great kitchen tool, visit their company website here.
