In the kitchen, we have some in every single drawer. It keeps everything from silverware trays to loose spatulas from sliding to the back every time you pull a drawer open.
That’s the obvious one. Here are some of the other ways we’ve come to use it:
• Underneath Cutting Boards - This keeps your cutting board from slipping while you cut.
• To Open Jars - Forget all those fancy jar-opening gadgets. A square of this stuff works every time.
• Under the Mixer - Standing mixers have a tendency to “walk” over the counter while in use. We’ve found that sticky mat underneath helps.
• Under Mixing Bowls and Pans - If we’re using a hand mixer or pouring batter into a pan, a bit of mat underneath keeps it in one place.
• Tightening Faucets and Drawer Handles - When we don’t have a wrench handy, this mat will grip slippery knobs to tighten them up.
• Emergency Drying Rack - When we have an overflow of dishes after a party, we’ve found that a square of non-slip mat on the counter makes a handy spot to let the dishes dry. The mesh lets moisture evaporate from underneath and the sticky keeps glasses from sliding.
Have you found any other ways for using non-slip drawer liners in the kitchen?
