How To Dry Glasses Quickly With Chopsticks


If you’re throwing a last minute soiree or unexpected guests may be stopping over, you’re going to want to make sure your drinking glasses are ready for use. Sure, you can clean them and use a dish rag to dry them, but then you risk the chance of scuffs and marks. Luckily, Howcast found an interesting way to dry glasses that’s super fast and efficient.

Simply lay two chopsticks next to each other with a little distance in-between. Then, just place your glass on top of them upside down. This should let the air circulate freely and leave the glass spotless.

This is a clever little trick that gives a new purpose to all those takeout chopsticks you've been stashing. And if you don’t have chopsticks available you can probably use any thin stick or dowel to elevate the glasses.
