Solved the "wet counter" problem!

Sometimes, it's the little things that count, especially when they're annoying. LOL

In our Airstream, we have been using different tactics to try to keep the water from pooling up behind our kitchen sink. None of them really worked. And no matter how careful you are, grabbing the faucet handle or the soap means dripping water from your hands onto the counter.

We stumbled on this little mat and solved our problem once and for all! It can be trimmed to fit different sizes of sinks and faucets, but it was a perfect fit right out of the box for our Airstream (2022 30-foot Flying Cloud).

The Sink Splash Guard is available at Amazon here: https://amzn.to/46DV1KD

Looks like a great addition to the kitchen sink. Thanks for sharing the idea.

What is the dimension from the centerline of the faucet opening to the front edge of the silicone? I want to make sure it will fit our Globetrotter.

Thanks!

Looks like 2-1/8 inches from edge of opening to edge of mat.

To centerline of opening would be 2-3/4 inches. (Website says its 5-1/2 inches deep total.)

Sink Spash Guard

Weíve had ours for several years and love it so much that we also bought them for our home.

I theory its should be fine. In practice the suggestion above is correct. But this just trades one concern for another.

I wanted to get one of those silicone Splash Guards but it would not fit our GT. Then I was looking at Etsy and found a person who makes custom splash guards. She calls them "drip catchers". In fact I also bought several for the sinks in our house. They are well made, very reasonably priced with quick shipment. Here is a link to the website. She will make custom sizes if you send her a sketch of what you would like. Or I can send you her email address if you PM me.

https://www.etsy.com/listing/1660627...search_click=1

PS I have no vested interest with the exception of supporting a small business.
