When you’ve got so many things on your mind, why lose even more of that precious time by drying your dishes? You may very well let nature do its way and go ahead a use a dish-drying rack. Not only you’re going to save yourself from the trouble of drying the dishes, but you’re going to have a better organized, cluster-free kitchen too.
Yes, air drying may cause some water spots on your dishes or glassware, but you get actually cleaner dishes since you’re not handling them that much as you’re not hand drying them anymore. Your cupboards are also going to be a lot cleaner like this too.
What to do if your kitchen is kind of small?
If you’re struggling with space in your kitchen and you’re remodeling as well, you may very well add a plate rack. It just need to have slats in the bottom so that there’s efficient ventilation and drainage. Last thing you want is to end up with some mildew in the kitchen.
Create a translucent panel in your kitchen so that you may conceal the drying rack. You may get some custom wire racks set over the sink so that both your dishes and glassware drain safely.
Keep in mind that you need to use a rack when drying dishes behind closed doors. Stay away from stacking wet dishes in a dark environment as it traps moisture and may cause growth of dangerous bacteria. Install a drip tray that is easy to slide out for easy emptying.
Another option to try is to hide the rack with a removable tray inside your kitchen’s cupboard.
The drying rack inserts that may be mounted on the edges of your sink are another great choice when fighting with space. You’re going to have more room for more of your dirty dishes underneath as well.
If your sink doesn’t come with one from the manufacturer, you may get an adjustable rack that works great especially for drying cups and wineglasses.
Don’t forget about the glass rack that is easy to use. It dries your glasses in a jiffy and you don’t need to stress about the space either.
If you’d rather go for the rustic feel in your kitchen, you may also find rustic indoor racks that not only solve your dish drying problem but also make a nice décor for your rustic kitchen.
