Anti-Fatigue Kitchen Mats Are Perfect When Doing Dishes!

Posted on: April 23rd, 2014 by

Anti Fatigue Kitchen Mats Ideal When Standing For Long Periods Of Time!I will be moving into a new apartment in the next week or so and now I am trying to figure out all the items and accessories that I’ll be needing to make my new space a functional one. Of courses you have your priorities; things like a refrigerator, utensils and general seating arrangements. No one wants to sit on the floor against the wall to watch their unnecessarily large flat-screen television, now do they? That would just be ridiculous. So it would seem that I have some very cost effective shopping in my very near future.

With that in mind, I will also need a few things that will make my home life, shall we say…more conducive.  I will be moving in with my friend; of whom I have known him for 25 plus years. Now in that time I have found out many things about this guy and I do know that doing dishes, is absolutely not something that he is capable of. Not physically mind you, no. Contextually, he just simply does not do them.

So with that inevitable detail being considered it leads me to another purchase that I will inevitably be stocking up on and that is a kitchen mat. Ideally a gel mat or anti-fatigue kitchen mats of some sort. As I foresee long hours spent over my new sink dealing with the unavoidable mountain of dishes and utensils. So wish me luck on the move, and in my dish riddled adventures before me.


Pet Products That Will Make Your Cat Or Dog Happy!

Posted on: May 9th, 2013 by

Pet Products That Show How Much You Love Your Pet!I am sure that most of us have had a family pet as a child. I know that I certainly had a series of them. From hamsters to cats, dogs and a few birds scattered here and there – no not literally scattered, and no the cats did not eat them.  So over the past 7 to 8 years my life had been missing something, some special little place deep in the reaches of my soul longed for a little fury thing to add to my little realm of experience and life. So! My roommate and I bought a cat.

Now being as though I was a born again pet owner, and that the last time I was I would not exactly call myself aware of the world or responsibilities. So to my surprise, there are quite a few little and not so little things that one must procure and have done to these little buggers upon purchase. It’s like hidden fees when you buy a car. But I couldn’t say no, so take my money I said. There are just so many different types of pet products.  Get that little fur-ball his shots and throw in those adorable pet beds that inevitably they won’t use because the anti fatigue kitchen mats or papers that I actually need on the kitchen table will be undoubtedly more enticing.  But tack it on, because we need that cat bed.

Then of course you need something for the little guy to eat from. As we all know cats are very finicky and picky when it comes to things like that, and no cat of mine shall be denied. So let’s pick up on that little water and food bowl set shall we. But wait…we don’t want to have kitty food all over the place so definitely going to need a pet placemat to keep it all neat and tidy.

So armed with vaccinations, enough pet furniture to fill the back of my truck and an adorable little fluff of kitten; I finally own an animal after all these years.


Heated Floor Mats Will Maintain The Heat In Your Relationship!

Posted on: March 21st, 2013 by

Have you ever noticed that a woman rarely asks for those things that she needs? She may say, “I’m thirsty.” But much like the character in “White Men Can’t Jump”, you can bet that she doesn’t want you to bring her a glass of water . . . unless she does.

I’m lucky that my wife of 23 years is so straightforward. If she wants a glass of water, she’ll say, “Next time you get up, would you bring me a glass of water?” (of course what she really means is “I’m thirsty and if you wish to sleep in safety tonight , you’d best get up and fetch me a glass of ice water with a lemon wedge and 2 freshly plucked mint leaves and sooner rather than later.”)

So when my darling better half mentioned that the floor in the kitchen was cold in the morning, I knew immediately that for the sake of my continued health, I would need to seek a remedy. I thought about buying long kitchen mats or some type of anti fatigue kitchen mats that would keep her feet from touching the cold floor and be comfortable. Nope, we already had one and it didn’t warm her feet enough when she stepped off the mat onto the floor.  I bought her extra thick socks. Nope, they made her feet sweat when not in the kitchen. I raised the temperature on the thermostat. Nope, she needs it to be frigid at night so she can put her ice cold feet in the middle of my back (something about my garbled muttering under my breath must lull her to sleep).

I was about to buy a cat and glue it to her slippers when it hit me.  There has GOT to be something on the internet to solve this. Brushing aside the heated subfloor section I noticed heated floor mats complete with adjustable Hi-Lo – Off switch. It comes in two sizes and is perfect for that ever so cold kitchen or bathroom floor.  I decided to get a heated footrest in our home office too.  The lord and protector of the manor triumphs again.

Now I just have to decipher her apocryphal musings about what a dreamboat Hugh Jackman is. (Wonder if I should strap on Ginsu knives and leap around in tights.)


Non-Slip Mat And Drainage Mat Make Kitchens Safe!

Posted on: December 14th, 2012 by

The hardest thing I deal with, working in sales, is selling people stuff! I loathe nothing more than somebody trying to talk me into something. When you do that, it makes me feel like you’re just trying to make a buck. Every once in a while I see an opportunity where I really want to help someone, but the only way to do that is to sell them one of our products and I don’t know how to bring it up. This is my current dilemma :

 My best friend is a Pastry Chef and she’s complaining about her feet and back and also almost tripping at work. I immediately am thinking, oh she needs anti fatigue kitchen mats.  Turns out they have carpet runners all over the kitchen, which is horrible! Not even basic anti fatigue mats?  I grew up in the restaurant industry and I know how wet slippery and gross the kitchen floors can get, so I understand why they have runners everywhere (Technically all employees should have ‘non-slip’ shoes, but realistically they don’t).  If you’re a chef and you’re on your feet, in the same spot, for 8-12 hours a day, you need more support than just a ¼” piece of carpet.  Plus carpet just soaks up gook and I’m sure smell like grease.   Â

 I really want to hook up my friend’s restaurant with a good drainage mat, which will not only reduce slipping hazards but will also help the joints of all people involved but I don’t know how to bring it up! Especially since she’s not the deciding party. Matsmatsmats offers a large selection of quality anti-fatigue mats.  I have no doubt that we have the right non-slip floor mats that best suits her needs and her bosses budget. What I should really do is gift her one and hopefully her bosses will see it, like it, ask her where she got it, and call me themselves. Yay product placement!
