Tips to clean sink mats

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.

Can i get a customized sink mat?

If by customized you mean size-wise, most plastic and vinyl sink mats allow you to cut them both on the outside and inside, to adjust them to your sink. You can make them smaller, cut a hole in the middle to open the drain, and cut any shape you like.
This mat for example, shaped as a cluster of pebbles, can be cut with regular scissors to remove unwanted "pebbles" and adjust the size of its drain-hole:

Same thing for this flower mat:

If, instead, you would like to create your own mat, customized in color, shape and style, you can contact a 3D print service and ask them to print your special mat, or to design and print one for you.
Here is an example of a 3D print service website:

My sink mat got all moldy so I threw it out and just bought a new one. How do I prevent my new mat from getting moldy like the old one?

The most important thing is to always place it standing up against the wall after you finish using it. This way it will dry properly which will prevent the mold from growing.

I have a white rubber sink mat. How do I clean off the coffee and tomato sauce stains?

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.

My Laptop overheats and shuts off randomly. Mainly when I'm watching a video online or even a movie. WHATS WRONG WITH MY ACER 4730Z?

your heat sinks and fans need cleaning, you have to open up your laptop and clean it out. Or you can get a cooling mat that will also help.
