The Grass is Always Greener with Boon’s Drying Rack

Boon GrassBoon Grass

You love your baby, but you could live without the cluttered kitchen counter that seemed to arrive around the same time as your precious bundle.  Before baby there were maybe a few dirty plates here and there, but the counter surface was still basically visible to the naked eye. 

Now bottles, nipples, plastic forks and spoons, sippy cups and divided plates take up every inch of space.  To top it all off, many of these items have narrow openings so they are difficult to dry after washing, meaning you have to leave them inverted on the counter to dry.  So the clean ones are out with the dirty ones, making a never ending cycle of clutter!

Fortunately the innovative people at Boon have come up with another helpful product for parents.  Their new drying rack is appropriately called ‘Grass’, as it looks like someone cut out a section of your front lawn.  The BpA, Phthalate and PVC-free item consists of two parts for easy cleaning – a tray and the chunk of ‘grass’.  The blades of grass will easily hold numerous bottles, bottle accessories, pacifiers and plastic utensils all in one small space.

Unlike your front lawn, this grass can be run through the dishwasher and is always soft to the touch.  It looks quirky and will keep the baby accessory clutter somewhat contained.  If it is ever not in use you could also toss it on the floor to give baby a new touch sensation. (Buy here.)

For baby items only?

I'm constantly on the prowl looking for new kitchen items. This looks like a good replacement for years of bad design! Right now, I have a chrome rack (which is supposed to be 100% stainless steel, but all the rust beg to say otherwise).
I will try to see if I could take a look and find this in store. I want to paint my kitchen walls this type of green, I think it would look fun and also would prevent me from having too much dishes on the counter.
Thanks for the tip!

You're welcome! 

You're welcome!  I don't know if it would hold heavier items like plates and glasses, but if you can track one down to have a look at or ask a seller online that would be great.  I think it would look fantastic in a kitchen that is painted in that color!
