Last week, I was asked to check out a leather desk pad from Piboshi. Measuring 33 inches by 13 inches, the pad goes under your laptop, keyboard or other devices to protect your desk from getting scratches. Its reversible, with both sides being anti-skid, and can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth.
Like many, I’ve had to make the switch from commuting to the office 5 days a week to working remotely from home due to COVID. It’s been quite the change, though has saved me a ton in gas. The biggest victim in all of this is my poor kitchen table which has really taken a beating. My work laptop itself doesn’t leave scratches, but the cooling stand that it’s on does. I thought this mat might be the perfect to keep from gouging the table any worse.
The mat arrived rolled up with a reusable band. It rolled out almost perfectly flat on the first go and didn’t need long to fully settle out, just a few minutes. It completely protects the top of my table. I can slide the laptop around now as needed, plus the mat itself stays put and doesn’t move. The mouse works really well on it too, so I don’t need a mouse pad now.
Overall, this is an excellent desk pad and is a must have if you are currently working from home. It’s also great for kids who are remote learning as well. I plan on ordering a second mat that my daughter can use when she does online classes at the table. The desk pad is available on Amazon for $8.99 (+ tax/shipping).
