Over the years, I have used many different dish racks. Inevitably they would get a little grimy or rusty or not hold enough dishes. There was never one I loved- until I got rid of the dish rack all together and got dish drying mats! I’ve been using dish drying mats for over a year and I haven’t missed a dish rack for a minute.
You just lay the dish drying mat on the counter against the wall and start playing reverse Jenga as you line up your dishes to dry. The mats are thick, highly absorbent, and cushion your dishes. I have 2 extra dish mats for the days when there are a lot of dishes. I throw them in the wash when they are dirty. Hang them up if they need to dry. Fold them and tuck them away if I don’t need them. They are so simple, inexpensive, and easy to find. They are awesome! I will never go back to a dish rack!
