PROBLEM – I have a very small kitchen and not a lot of counter space. My family rarely makes enough dishes dirty in one day to run the dishwasher. I actually prefer to wash dishes by hand but there isn’t really room for a drainer. If I do wash dishes by hand I feel frustrated by all the wasted space in the dishwasher.

SOLUTION – Use the dishwasher as the drainer. Wash the dishes by hand let them air dry in the dishwasher.  (I can’t take credit, this was my client’s idea.)

SIDE NOTE – It probably makes sense to keep the door open for a chunk of time so the dishes can dry.  Running the dishwasher every once in a while might be a good idea.  *This idea has  not yet been approved by the dishwasher association.  🙂
