A Compact Efficient Dish Drying Mat For Camping

September 21, 2011 by · 2 Comments 


If you cook when you are camping, then you most likely begrudge washing and drying those dishes. I know that I do. I often find it a hassle to dry the dishes and then deal with the damp kitchen towels. Getting those kitchen towels to dry here in the maritime Pacific Northwest can be a challenge on a cold rainy day by the Pacific Ocean!

Well, just this weekend, I discovered a lightweight, compact, and affordable drying mat that seems to fit the bill for campground cookery. I purchased one on Saturday night and have been using it in my home kitchen, but I now intend to get one for my camper. The Dish Drying Mat is made from absorbent microfiber and easily folds for storage. It is cushiony, absorbent, and fast drying. And, it is machine washable in cold water.

I haven’t washed mine yet, but I have found that the mat is priceless for drying pots, pans, knives, wine glasses, and miscellaneous kitchen items. The mat absorbs the water beautifully and thereby  minimizes the use of kitchen towels. So, if you are looking for an efficient way to dry cookware while camping, seriously consider this lightweight nifty mat for your mobile kitchen.

    Have one for my RV. Washes and dries beautifully. I use it as a dish drain mat, or as a mat under my dish drainer, depending on number of dishes I have to wash. Got it at Bed Bath & Beyond.

    Those micro-fiber mats do work great we used one all last summer and it does great. We even purchased a couple new ones this year to use.
