rubber mat in sink

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I have a rubber mat in my sink that has spaghetti sauce stains on it. Anyone know how to get these out? I usually clean the rubber mat every week in bleach in the sink but its not working on these stains. I don't really want to spend money on a new one. This is a new one.

TIA

Why do you even have a rubber mat? Just curious, I have never known what their purpose is.

In case a glass might fall over in the sink the mat possibly will keep it from breaking.

This is what I was going to ask. I have never understood what they were for.

I don't know what you can use on it other than bleach...I'm afraid you may be stuck with it like that...

I used to have one in my sink so that if I ever dropped a glass while washing it it wouldn't break. It also cuts down on the noise-factor of washing dishes - clanking things around, etc....Those are about the only two reasons I can think of to have one. I liked mine, but it was hard to clean in between the little suction cup thingies on the bottom.

You can try that stuff to remove tomato stains...let me see if I can find the name of it. You can also use it to 'clean' your dishwasher. LOL It's worked for me on spatulas that get stained.

Okay it's Cascade Plastic Booster!

Looks like this:
Cascade Plastic Booster

You can also try just some dishwasher detergent and see if that will lift it.

Don't use bleach to try to clean it...it can damage the plastic.

I have one and love it! Ladies, don't knock it till you try it! I bought mine at the dollar tree so I wouldn't mind just throwing mine out when it gets nasty. I usually scrub it with Dawn and it comes clean. Maybe try soaking it in hot Dawn water for a bit?? Good luck!
