The Finnish Cleaning Method Will Forever Change the Way You Dry Dishes

 you can bring this space-saving hack to your home.

If we've said it once, we've said it a thousand times: kitchen counter space is valuable real estate. That's why everyone in Finland— and on Amazon, apparently — is obsessed with this genius dish drying method a.k.a. the Finnish cleaning method.

Basically, instead of having shelves inside the cabinets above your sink, there are slotted dish racks. That means you can put wet dishes away and let them drip dry straight into the sink, eliminating the annoying task of drying dishes by hand. In Finland, this contraption is called astiankuivauskaappi, which according to Google Translate, is a compound word for dish (astian), dry (kuivaus) and cabinet (kaappi). This is what one of the Finnish cabinets looks like in action:

This concept is basically made for small kitchens since it eliminates the need for drying racks, ultimately saving tons of precious counter space. Since many American kitchens haven't (yet) adopted this game-changing cabinet construction, there are several over-the-sink options that you can buy right on Amazon — no kitchen remodel necessary.

With nearly 100 reviews and a near-perfect five-star rating on Amazon, the ADBIU dish rack is clearly the best way to give this trend a try. This stainless steel organizer fits perfectly over most double sinks, and comes in double or single shelf options depending on your storage needs. Even better than the Finnish version, this easy-to-assemble drying rack has hooks to hold utensils, pots, and pans along with side pockets sized to fit cutting boards, chopsticks, and even your go-to reusable straws. That means you can dry anything — plates, pots, cups, and so on — in one spot.
