This 18x24" superabsorbent, thick dishdrying mat is a much better alternative to placing just-washed dishes on a kitchen towel on the counter. The thick mat cushions dishware to prevent chips and protect surfaces, dries quickly and stores in a limited amount of space. Absorbs up to 4 times its weight in water and radiates moisture to help keep countertops dry. Machine wash with liquid detergent in cold water. Tumble dry low. Do not iron. Do not bleach. Color - black.
