Puddles and water spots that accumulate during dishwashing are annoying at best, and extremely problematic at worst. Whether you want to protect granite countertops from water damage and discoloration or are just sick of wiping down splashes nightly, you’re going to want to learn about this clever, unexpectedly helpful tool from Amazon.

The Ternal Sinkmat is one of those finds you didn’t know you needed, but soon becomes indispensable. (Over 850 glowing five-star ratings can’t be wrong.) Made from highly absorbent microfiber in stylish gray or black, it’s designed to wrap around standard-size sink faucets and fit snugly on the counter to protect that area from splashes and suds.

To buy: Ternal Sinkmat, $13 with coupon at

If this sounds basic to you, it is. That’s the beauty of it. It works by thirstily soaking up sink splashes, then dries in place. Small-business Ternal designed the mat to open and close with a snap button enclosure, so installation takes seconds. Plus, it can also be flipped over to accommodate a variety of faucet sizes and sink ledges.

“This was, without a doubt, the best kitchen purchase!” one customer raved, adding that it’s large enough to hold dish and hand soaps, lotion, and a sponge holder without seeming cluttered. It doesn’t just look good, though; the mat is truly efficient at protecting sinks, backsplashes, and as one reviewer discovered, their stainless steel faucet. A washable sink mat also cuts down on single-use paper towels, as another eco-conscious customer noted.

The standard Ternal Sinkmat measures 15 inches long, just over 5 inches wide, and a quarter-inch thick. Will it fit your kitchen sink? Likely, yes — if you have a single faucet (not raised). This graphic is a helpful explainer about which sinks will work with the mat, and which styles don’t. The Ohio-based brand also offers extra-large and mini mats to fit a variety of sink spaces.

One reviewer, an insurance adjuster who recommends the mats to guard against water damage, noted that they should be cleaned or left to hang-dry regularly. Luckily, they’re durable, machine-washable, and dryer-compatible. “We own about three and change them out weekly,” explained one user. Even if you don’t plan on rotating yours regularly, it’s helpful to know these also work great in bathrooms and RVs.

Right now, you can get a single Ternal mat for just $13 with a clickable coupon at Amazon, or snag a two-pack for $22. You’d better hurry, though — some styles are low in stock.
