Keep Top-Rack Dishes in their Place with this Easy TrickPosted by MeckMom on Sep 28, 2010 in Popular Posts: Parenting Hacks | 5 comments
If you’ve got little kids, chances are you’ve got a lot of plastic dishes, sippy cups and bottles. As cute and handy as they are, they have this annoying little habit…they love to flip over in the dishwasher. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve pulled out my top-rack to find a bunch of cups and bowls that look like this.
Gross. I hate getting splashed with the dirty dishwater that hangs out in flipped cups. Don’t you? Thankfully, one Cook’s Illustrated (one of my favorite magazines) reader had a great solution. It’s a simple trick that works like a charm.
Next time you have a top rack full of flip-able plasticware just toss a cooling rack on the top. It’s heavy enough to keep the cups and bowls in position yet open enough to let the soap and water work their magic.
It’s an easy trick that will make your next dishwasher unloading a whole lot easier. Just thought I’d pass it on.
