GelPro Review & Giveaway, CLOSED!

CONTEST CLOSED!


A couple of weeks ago, I received a wonderful new product from GelPro -- makers of the World's original gel-filled anti-fatigue floor mat.

I was the lucky recipient of GelPro's new Spot Mat -- an 18" X 24"
portable mat for everyday / anywhere use! It's very easy to move around to any location where it's needed (it weighs approximately 6 lbs).



I chose to receive the red Flora design spot mat.

Rose is a light, majestic red with deep red overtones. Its enticing, cheerful tint is inviting, providing the perfect accent for any color scheme. From a distance the raised surface of the Flora pattern appears to be a series of full-bodied roses. The closer you get the more eye-catching and intricate the pattern becomes.


The difference this gel mat makes when you've got to stand (or kneel) in one place is amazing. I hate to do dishes -- always have -- and still don't have an electric dishwater. So, my feet do hurt standing on these tiles floors.

Well, not anymore.

GelPro Mats are made of a shock absorbing 1/2" gel core that greatly reduces pressure on your feet and back. The top surface is a durable synthetic leather that is stain-resistant and easy to clean (with mild soap and water). The non-slip vinyl bottom includes an anti-microbial additive to prevent mold and mildew. Every texture in our ever-expanding line up is made of the same synthetic material (despite their different textures).


I can stand and do my dishes and not have the tired, aching feeling in my feet and calves. Trust me, it makes a HUGE difference in my attitude! The GelPro mat provides a depth of comfort I've not experienced with the flimsy, thin mats you find at discount stores.

GelPro Mats are now available in larger Designer Sizes with widths of 28" and 36" and lengths up to 12 feet! There is a mat for every room and every need in your home or garage.

The folks at GelPro want you to to get involved in choosing a mat perfect for your home. Just visit their Interactive Kitchen to choose your style, colour, and size!
