madesmart Drying Stone Sink Station
Product number: 62963
When it comes to corralling all those sink-side essentials like your brush, sponge, soap and washing-up liquid, you ideally want a caddy that does two things: keeps them all neatly in one place, and stops them getting soapy water all over your countertop. Madesmart’s Drying Stone Sink Station does both, brilliantly.
Dedicated space for all your washing-up essentials
The divided deep compartment holds any brushes, and helps keep them standing up straight, while the shallower dish in front will take care of your soap or sponge. Then there’s the flat Drying Stone mat to one side, which is perfect for your bottle of washing-up liquid. And it’s that flat stone mat – and the separate one that sits under the other compartments – that soak up any drips of water or soapy splashes, making them vanish as if by magic…
Mats quickly soak up excess water
The ‘magic’ ingredient in the Drying Stone mats is diatomite, a highly porous natural material that quickly absorbs any liquid that comes into contact with it. Once absorbed, the water rapidly evaporates from the stones, so their surfaces stay dry to the touch rather than getting waterlogged. The speed at which they ‘suck’ water up also helps to eliminate any germs and bacteria, and stops moisture leaking out over your work surfaces.
Easy to clean
The Drying Stones are easy to remove from the non-slip plastic base when they need a clean – there are full instructions on the packaging – and they can either be washed by hand or popped in the dishwasher before being placed outside in the sun to help them dry.
A soft, highly porous rock, mostly made up from the tiny fossils of single-celled algae called diatoms, super-absorbent diatomite has also been used to filter water, beer and wine; as a very mild abrasive in toothpaste and metal polish; an anti-caking agent; a growing medium for potted plants (especially bonsai); in cat litter; and even in dynamite.
