Mom spends a ton of time in her kitchen cooking for the neighbors. So there is lots of standing and her legs and back get tired. She found these Gel-Pro mats from Bed, Bath and Beyond to ease the situation. Can I just say how great they feel on your feet? For the love....I will go out of my way through the kitchen just so I am standing on them...they are cool in temperature and so nice on your feet....I could stand there all day and hand wash dishes....awesome!
