I'm curious how cork is absorbent, but yet it's used to keep wine in a bottle for many, many years

@antares, I also use sandstone coasters, but I unfortunately find that their liquid absorbing capability seems to decrease over time. Probably from too much non-water liquid getting on it through spills or drips down the side, clogging up the pores. I've tried sanding them down with slight-but-not-great success, so I don't bother anymore

Is cork heavy enough to make a good coaster? I prefer sandstone coasters: https://www.amazon.com/Marbco-Sandstone-Coasters-Diameter-coasters/dp/B07JMGR7XJ/

My new thing is old mousepads for coasters. No need for precision. ๐Ÿ˜€
