I know you can barely contain your excitement. Neither can I. But you must.
As I type this I a trembling with excitement for the extra drying up space I am going to gain. Something I never dreamed that I could have in my lifetime.
Dish drying mats are knocked down to 50p. They are washable so can be re-used.
A similar product is £7.99 at Lakeland:http://www.lakeland.co.uk/23868/Diamond-Drying-Mat
Not red label or anything. Marked up on the SEL. Also metal scouring balls and pads were 35p.
Washing up will never be the same. The future is now. What a time to be alive.
