There’s a cleaning product that every kitchen needs. You might overlook them, but kitchen dish drainers are the workhorses of the kitchen. Kitchen dish drainers help you keep your dishes chip-free as they dry.
While it’s great to be able to pass off a wet dish to a dishwashing partner, when you wash dishes by yourself it’s not a viable option. That’s why a kitchen dish drainer can be so helpful. And even if you have a built-in dishwasher, a countertop drainer is a great solution when you don’t want to run the dishwasher for a small batch of dirty dishes.
Plus, it’s eco-friendly. There are lots of other uses for kitchen dish drainers. You can use them to dry rinsed out plastic baggies, and then the baggies can be reused. This is perfect when the baggies have only held dry goods, like pretzels or trail mix. It’s so easy to rinse and reuse, and it saves you money because you don’t have to go to the store to buy snack bags. A dish rack also comes in handy for drying hand washed delicates. They’re the perfect size to hold a washed sweater, and since the rack elevates the fabric, your clothes will dry faster and more easily than if they were laid flat.
And don’t feel as if you have to get a countertop kitchen dish drainer – an over-the-sink model is a perfect choice for smaller kitchens with limited counter space. There are all sorts of kitchen dish drainers: from colorful plastic models, to chromed stainless steel. There’s a great new trend of bamboo kitchen dish drainers, which is an environmentally responsible choice that complements any kitchen decor. With all the choices and uses for a kitchen dish drainer, you may find yourself wondering how you ever got along without one! I know that since I’ve added one to my kitchen, it’s the one thing in my kitchen I use everyday, without fail.
