Simple Tip: Easy Way To Dry Wine Glasses

Drying wine glasses can sometimes be a pain. Towels can leave awful streaks and lint, and sitting them on the counter causes condensation spots to form, and besides the lip is making a perfect seal with the counter meaning there's no air coming in to help out. Just imagine, if only there was a way to get air flowing into the glass... Turns out there is and it's one of those "'Doh! Why didn't I think of that?" tricks. To dry your wine glasses, just set down two chopsticks parallel on top of a dishtowel and place the glass on top! Square shaped chopsticks work best, but as long as you set them far enough apart, the round ones work too.

Even better, use Spot-Not , the glassware dryer. It has a flexible core that fits into any shape glass and a re-usable microfiber sleeve that dries and polishes glasses without risk of breaking it. Find a retailer at

ha ha. i also just ordered a cooling rack on amazon this morning. the reviews were very helpful in finding out which ones are non-stick and which ones will and won't rust.

nice tip! i've just been folding the towel up a little and gingerly resting the wine glass on the 'bump.' that way a little air can get under. but i'm definitely pulling out my chop sticks next time!

LaLa - You jumped the gun! I was actually going to mention that one next! Although, I did a little research and it really depends on the type of drying rack you have. Some of them are not meant to get wet and can rust over time, so if you do a cookie rack, make sure it's one that won't rust.

Smart tip. I'm gonna have to remember this one. Laurie's cookie rack suggestion sounds like a good one, too. Thanks, y'all!
