My brother in law was making something at the stove so when I gasped in horror he turned around to see what I was freaking out about. I pointed at my mat and asked him what it was doing on the floor. This was his response:
“It’s a slip-mat… you know, so you don’t SLIP on the floor!!”
I was like… what? No no no no no, dear, it’s a SILPAT. He argued with me for a minute but when actually LOOKED at the word very clearly on the mat he said..”Oh. Well, it LOOKS like it should be a slip mat!!”
It was all sorts of dirty from being in the floor with the dog and the cats and my feet. I washed it in hot hot hot water for a while but it’s just not the same.
What a way to break it in 😦
