Place Mat to Keep Counter Clean

Bronze Tip Medal for All Time! 64 Tips

The white grout on my kitchen counter top is a nuisance to clean. I now put a plastic place mat on it in the two places I use for food prep - beside the coffeepot, which always drips anyway, and above the dishwasher, where I often pour, mix, etc. In the evening, when I finish other kitchen chores, I just rinse it and lay it on the drain board to dry and it's ready to grab in the AM.


Note: I still use a cutting board when needed.

I don't blame you for doing what you can do to keep your grout from staining. I had white grout once and never again. I would rather have Formica than that. Good thinking though to keep it clean.

Great idea- a real "Why didn't I think of that?"
