I love finding new uses for things I already have!
I’m lucky enough to live in New York and have a sizeable kitchen, (no closet space though, I guess you can’t have everything right?), with a double sink to boot. So usually whatever is not going into the dishwasher gets washed and drained on the other side of the sink. But sometimes there are things that don’t fit, or I’m too tired to dry them, or they’re too fragile, or well, we’re being just plain lazy. That’s when I came up with the brilliant idea of using a pan and a cookie rack as a dishdrainer. It’s easy.
Just place a “10 x 15″ cooling rack inside of a 17″ x1 2” baking sheet like this, and voila!
Your glasses, bowls, bottles and jars all drain quite nicely.)
