I like "old school" things (betcha woulda never guessed that!) but we do live in the 21st century and occasionally I find something "new-fangled" that I like, especially if it helps me take care of my "old-fangled" treasures. That was the case when I happened upon this very handy Dish Drying Mat at Bed, Bath & Beyond.
When I get home from a productive treasure-hunt, I usually have several pieces of kitchen glassware or china that need a good bath. A dishwasher is very harsh on vintage pieces like colored Pyrex and jelly glasses with printed graphics so I prefer to hand-wash. After washing, I would place them to dry on a dishtowel laid on the kitchen counter.
I've discovered that the Drying Mat works much better than a dishtowel. It soaks up the water so that the counter doesn't get as wet and it also cushions the glassware. The mat drys quickly after use and can even be machine washed if soiled. Mats are available in several sizes and all cost under $10.
By the way, this is a non-solicited recommendation. I really like this product and, in case you haven't seen or used one, I thought you might like a little help in taking care of your own vintage glassware.
Cherish your treasures!
