When you open the dishwasher to unload it, do the cups have water puddled on them? And even when you do your best to carefully dump the water out in the dishwasher or sink, the puddle still flings on the other dishes, the floor, or even on you? And even when you’re able to get most of the water off the cup, there are always droplets that leave a ring on the bottom of your cup cabinet?
You are not alone!
Even with the “dry” setting on most dishwashers, there seems to always be water left on top (well, technically the bottom) of cups, glasses, and even plastic containers. Surely one of these days someone will invent a dishwasher that drys all the water. Until then, here’s a little tip to use when unloading your dishwasher.
How to Quickly Remove Puddled Water from Cups and Glasses
Seeing water rings in a kitchen cabinet immediately makes the cabinet look dirty, even when it’s not. So here’s a quick way to remove excess water from cups and prevent water rings on your kitchen cabinets.
Before unloading the dishwasher, pull out a drying mat or dishcloth and place it on the counter between your dishwasher and cup cabinet. As you pull each cup or glass out of the dishwasher, flip it over and run it across the drying mat to remove the excess water, then place in the cabinet.
You may have thought about doing this before but never took the time to implement. Try it today! It takes about 1 extra second per glass when unloading the dishwasher but it’s well worth the time to eliminate the frustration that comes with wet glasses. Plus, it helps you keep your cabinets in tip-top condition!
How do you deal with puddled water left on your cups and glasses when you unload the dishwasher?
