Hand wash stemware, then set it on this absorbent mat

Continue reading below

When you are looking at a tableful of stemware to hand wash, and the drain rack is already crowded, you probably need Prepara’s DryDock mat ($14.99-$15.99). The 14-by-21 inch rectangle allows delicate dinnerware to dry quickly and hygienically. The textured microfiber surface has been treated with an antibacterial formula, and the material lets air flow under dishes and glassware. The company claims the mat is five times more absorbent than a cotton towel and will not get musty. It folds for easy storage. Ideal for small kitchens.
