Saturday, we were at a friends house with my portable kegerator:


As you can see, it doesn't yet have a drip tray.

My friend came out with a folded tablecloth, which he placed in the "drip area". Instant "drip rag", no tray needed!

Now, I am thinking of getting "fancy" with the idea. Do they make the thin "kitchen sponge" material in large sheets? That could be cut into sections that would work great at catching drips and spills. It could have a secondary function of acting as a sponge to clean up the kegerator after a party.

But a "sham-rag" might be the ticket!

Good call!

Bought a box of the Sham's ... work great in the brewery. Cleans out the last bits of water from the keggles.

oddly I find him the most interesting pitch-man on the tv.

Haha, love this post, made me laugh. Sham-rag should do the trick but be sure to wash it often. I've been guilty of ignoring my drip tray for a few days and mold acts fast. Which makes me remember I had an overpour this weekend, I'll need to clean my drip tray when I get home...

Not sure how cheap they are, but what bout those rubber bar mats? We had them at the restaurant I used to work at under the tea urn spigots to catch drips. Theyre rubber, so you just wash them and let them dry when done.

quick google search: http://www.google.com/products?q=rub...ed=0CCIQrQQwAA

A use a hybrid drip-rag/drip-dog setup. The hard part is keeping the drip-rag from become a beer flavored chewtoy for the drip-dog

Hah. I was going to make a joke about using a potty patch since it claims to hold a gallon.

Drip-dog is multi-purpose...cleans up racking spills also. Although he has been known to create his own clean up needs...when I have left my beer unattended on the coffee table.
