We love our pups and their enthusiasm but sometimes that energy leads to messes that are a pain to constantly clean up.
Does your dog have a tendency to messily lap up water at its bowl, causing wet, dirty floors around it?
If so, you’re actually in luck because there’s an innovation that not only helps prevent this but is a lot more stylish than typical unattractive dog bowls. Let’s check it out!
Introducing: Dog Bowls + Stone Base by Dorai Home
Most dog parents know the struggle of keeping the floor around their pups’ bowls clean and dry.
Now there’s a way to do it with Dorai Dog Bowls + Stone Base, which is made with diatomaceous earth that’s designed to instantly remove spilled water and prevent mold and dirty, slippery floors.
Dog parents can finally benefit from a drinking and feeding station that not only cleans up after your furry friends but also complements the design of your home.
Dorai Dog Bowls + Stone Base doesn’t just work well, it looks great too! This chic gray feeding station easily blends into modern decor and doesn’t stand out in a bad way.
What Comes With It?
The Dorai Dog Bowl + Stone Base comes with dishwasher and microwave-safe ceramic pieces. Each ceramic bowl can hold up to four cups.
The bowls are FDA-tested and approved so you don’t need to worry about the safety of your dog as they eat and drink.
As for the base, it features two debossed dog bowl holders for stability, and an extra water gutter to take care of any overflow. It also has a non-slip base that grips the floor and prevents the setup from moving wildly around while your dog drinks and eats.
What Is Diatomaceous Earth?
These bowls are made with diatomaceous earth which plays a key role in water removal.
Diatomaceous earth is composed of the fossilized remains of diatoms.
What are diatoms?
Diatoms are algae, and they are a pretty big deal because they make up nearly half of the organic material found in the oceans (sometimes covering the ocean floor under layers that are half a mile deep), where they absorb up to 6.7 billion metric tons of silicon each year. They also generate about 20%-50% of the oxygen which the planet produces each year, making them a critical part of the global ecosystem.
Because diatoms are such a big deal, you can say diatomaceous earth is also a big deal. In fact, here’s a fun fact: Winds from the Sahara blow millions of tons of diatomaceous earth over to the Amazon where they act as fertilizer for the entire Amazon basin.
So, what does this have to do with dog bowls? Here’s the feature that makes this material so interesting to you as a pup parent. Apart from providing oxygen for the planet, diatomaceous earth is great at drainage.
In fact, this is one of the reasons why it’s so popular with gardeners (apart from the fact that it’s also a non-toxic pesticide).
Diatomaceous earth can hold up to 150% of its weight in water, and therefore can act as an effective drain or sponge for all of those drops your dog leaves around its water bowl.
This is just one more innovative use for diatomaceous earth, which is already used in wastewater treatment, cat litter, toothpaste, and as an activator in blood clotting studies.
The fact that it removes water makes it effective at deterring mold which thrives on moisture – one less thing to worry about when you have a dog!
