Skip Drying Your Pots By Hanging A Pot Rack Directly Over Your Sink

Drying pots and pans is never fun, but Reddit user truckthunders discovered a dead-simple way to skip the process entirely. By placing a pot rack directly above the sink, the pots can air-dry and drip without ruining everything.

It's a really simple idea, but it takes away one of the most annoying parts of washing dishes. It's especially handy if you don't have room for a big drying rack or something similar. If you give this method a shot, be sure to hang it high enough that you don't bang your head on the pots and pans.

    Drying is the easiest part of washing dishes. Far from the most annoying part.

    Also, get a dishrack, leave your dishes in it for 30 minutes after washing. put them away. problem solved. There'd be a really small number of kitchens that don't have room for a dishrack.

    HOT rinse water is also key. (I find a lot of people are pro drying because of soap left on dishes. That's what rinsing is for!)

    Won't the pots in the above photo have a pool of water in them, water can't defy gravity after all

    When washing dishes the dirt remains in the suds ( the bubbles) so make sure you always rinse before leaving to dry
