As summer winds down and we gear up to head back to school, back to work, and shift toward some semblance of our normal daily routines, one routine that isn’t changing any time soon is doing the dishes. When it comes to meal prep, planning out weeknight dinners, and packing healthy lunches, the reality is that these tasks also create more dishes to wash. Staying on top of your pile in the sink is a major priority to keep your kitchen neat, sanitary, and organized.

Made from rustproof aluminum that won’t oxidize over time, these two new dish racks are designed to withstand daily wear and tear. The foldable dish rack is ideal for smaller kitchens and offers a flexible solution for doing dishes by hand. The frame has a double-layer design that holds dishes of all sizes, and a removable utensil cup can be placed on either side of the rack. It folds completely flat, making it ideal for use as a drying board for smaller daily dish loads.

We also love the OXO Good Grips Water Bottle Drying Rack to keep our water bottles, canteens, reusable straws, and travel mugs clean and dry. This rack’s innovative design holds four water bottles and four lids, and the unique straw holders keep up to four reusable straws elevated for sanitary and efficient drying (as if you needed another reason to make the switch from plastic straws to reusable options).

Both racks are budget-friendly, with the foldable dish rack priced under $40 and the water bottle drying rack priced at under $20. Doing those dishes just got so much easier.
