General Questions

Great question! Dorai is pronounced DOR - eye. From the Japanese word for dry, it symbolizes a natural, moisture free home.

Diatomaceous earth, or grass of the sea, is a naturally occurring mineral that is made from the fossilized remains of tiny aquatic organisms. You can learn more about our instant-drying technology on the How it Works page.

Diatomaceous earth is antimicrobial by its physical properties not through the use of any chemicals or toxins. In its raw state the material attracts and binds bacteria and parasites, causing them to dry out and die.

When compressed into boards it still rapidly evaporates to help prevent mold, but doesn't hold the same antimicrobial properties as the raw material.

Our line of bath mats, dish racks, dog bowls, coasters, sink caddies, and dish pads are 100% safe to use in your home. They do not contain asbestos or other substances of very high concern defined by the European Chemicals Agency and the Office of Environmental Health and Hazardous Assessment. Dorai products have passed Prop-65 which holds even more rigorous standards than the EPA.

Our ceramic dog bowls are lead-free and have passed Prop-65 and are FDA compliant.

Product Care FAQs

In the event that your mat gets stained, it can be cleaned in two ways. For light stains or scuffs, use the included sand paper to gently rub off any marks. We recommend doing this in a well ventilated area. For more extreme stains, small amounts of bleach or hydrogen peroxide will do the trick. You can view our full Care and Cleaning guide here.

We elect not to add dyes or additional substances to the Diatomaceous Earth compound and instead embrace the natural color. Given the lighter tone of the material, there is a risk of staining with dirt or darker liquids.

If you spill on it, first, try to dab up any excess liquid before it’s absorbed. For mild stains or scuffs, get your product damp and use sandpaper (150 grit or similar) to gently ‘wet sand’ off any marks. We recommend doing this in a well ventilated area. For more extreme stains, applying small amounts of diluted bleach or hydrogen peroxide should do the trick.

Diatomaceous Earth is a white algae substance that is broken down into small pieces, so white spots occur naturally in the production process. Some larger pieces remain during this process. We hope you appreciate the natural substances and understand that some white algae pieces will remain visible on the dark surface.

We're glad you asked, we hope this is the last bath mat you ever need to buy. Dorai Bath Stones are meant to be durable, but on rare occasions, they can break with enough force or weight. To prevent this we advise always having the foam pad in place between the floor and the mat.

This is to be placed under your Dorai Bath Stone to provide a non-slip base, and to help disperse the weight evenly when stepping on the mat. Place it evenly between the floor and your Bath Stone.

1. Lay the rubber, non-slip base on the ground with the knobs and Dorai logo facing up.

2. Snap the firm plastic connectors into the cutout sections of the rubber base to hold the pieces together.

3. Place your Bath Stone™ tile on top of each base piece, making sure the knobs of the base align with the holes on the back of each Bath Stone™ tile.

Watch our assembly tutorial.

We offer a 90-day product guarantee that covers standard household use. This includes using the Bath Stone inside your house on flat surfaces (i.e. floors, counters, etc).

If your Bath Stone breaks from common, everyday use, please go to our return portal and follow the prompts to "Item was damaged or lost" to submit a claim for the first 60 days after delivery.

If your stone breaks after the return window has closed, please email us at info@doraihome.com and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours, Monday through Friday.
