Description:

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

These disposable drain board liners (as shown in FIG. 3) will be used to cover and protect the bottom portion (as shown if FIG. 2) of the drain-board (the part that sits on the counter-top which has been created for water drainage). These disposable liners will also help to prevent calcium and lime build-up as well as mildew (which harvest germs & bacteria) from sticking to the bottom piece of the drain-board. I find that this build-up accumulates very fast, even after the drain-board has been washed. In addition, the calcium and lime deposits can prove very difficult to remove from this plastic household item after a while. This does not promote a sight of cleanliness and health.

The use of the disposable drain-board liner can help lessen these problems by simply disposing of it when it can be used no longer and then replacing it with a fresh one. In today's busy society, we want to spend less time doing chores and more time enjoying our families, friends and life in general. In addition, the liners will extend the life of the drain-board.
