While water on the floor might not be a huge deal on a modest scale, it might cause a slipping hazard or hurt that a hardwood flooring if not wiped up immediately. To prevent water from reaching the floor, adjust the water flow emanating from the tap and guard the floor in the front of the sink with a mat.
Preserve Water Off the Floor
Adjust the water flow from the tap to less than full velocity, which causes the water to splash back when it hits the sink or objects inside it, such as a dish drainer. Angle items toward the back of the sink as you wash or rinse them, or even position items within the sink so that the water hitting them does not deflect toward youpersonally. When using less water, then it might take longer to fill a pot or rinse a dish however, the water will not splash nearly as much. If the messiness is caused by how you hand-wash dishes, then roll up a dish towel to put at the front of the sink lip to catch drips. Use a mat or carpet on the floor in the front of the sink to catch errant drips. On a wood floor, pick a carpet or mat designed for a wood floor rather than a mat with rubber backing.
