Having aquired a lovely new stainless steel sink I decided to ditch the grotty plastic bowl and get a sink mat. I chose this version as it looked easy to cut to fit ( it was) and it is brilliant at stopping large pots and pans grating on the bottom of the sink during the washing up. I do not leave it in the sink 24/7 (it lives in the cupboard below and comes out when needed) but I have never had a problem cleaning it and I can't understand how anyone would expect something lying in the bottom of a sink in the washing up water not to need cleaning after the washing up is finished. I find that any residue of grease or whatever remaining on the mat and sink comes off when I stick the plug back in, add a quick squirt of washing up liquid and clean both sides of the mat and then the sink with my kitchen sponge. Would definately buy again when this one wears out.
