What's the point of washing silverware if it's just going to sit in a pool of dirty water as it dries? That's what happens when you use some of those dish racks with the enclosed cutlery holders. They might prevent water from dripping everywhere, but that also means the water it traps is left to fester with your "clean" silverware creating a breeding ground for bacteria. No thank you.
Those of you with dishwashers might not have to worry about this dishwashing conundrum, but the rest of us do. Or did. Now there's an adorable elephant silverware dryer that solves everything. This little guy holds your just-cleaned silverware next to the sink and cleverly drains the water out of its trunk. No pooled water. No bacteria. And very cute. We don't know about you, but we're sold. (Available for $21 at Monkey Business.)
