Having a sink grid in the bottom of your nice shiny stainless steel sink or any other type seems like a nice idea? No one wants to damage or scratch the sink. The grid helps keep dishes and silverware off the bottom of the sink. It helps with rinsing around the dishes.
Having a grid in your sink, makes it easy to forget to remove it, to do regular cleanings of the sink. Under the grid bacteria begins to grow and the sink soon becomes slimy and gross. It doesn’t take long for this to happen.
Kitchen sinks, harbor about 100,000 per square centimeter of bacteria such as E. Coli, campylobacter, and salmonella. The kitchen sink is one of the germiest places in the home.
These grids seem like a great idea, in the long run it is creating more bacteria and more cleaning, and these aren’t easy to clean.
