Tip & How-To about Home
Usually sink mats get easily stained by tomatoe-based foods or oils, and the removal of those stains and greasiness is quite unpleasant.
Here are some tips to easily get your mats back to shape.
- One option is cleaning the mats with bleach. This process should remove about 90% of the stains, but will leave the mats a bit stiff. It also should always be done while wearing rubber gloves and in a well ventilated area.
- Another option is soaking the mats for 10 minutes in very hot water and dish soap and then scrubbing them clean.
- Putting them into the dishwasher with anti-stain or anti-grease soaps is also a good solution, and should work almost as well as the previous solution. They can also both be done, making the result even more satisfying.
- In addition to these methods, you can also make a paste of baking soda and white vinegar and use it as "soap" to scrub the stains. You can also let the paste sit on the stain for a bit, it should make it easier to remove the stain after.

I tend to scrub my mat with detergent. Rinse it with warm water and leave it to dry off. You can also leave them to soak overnight with soap and then rinse them off in the morning. For really tough stains, I pour baking soda on top, let it sit for a bit and then scrub the mat. You can try leaving them in the sun, because sun bleaches white things.
