The amount of dirty dishes that the four of us go through is crazy. I’ve found that the majority of what I’m loading and unloading are drinking glasses, and not because we’re consuming large amounts of liquid, but because no one can remember which glass is theirs, so they get another one, therefore a menagerie of drinking glasses can usually be found at our house.
I tried to think of a few creative ways to avoid the confusion. Coasters of different colors in a special place in the kitchen for each person to park their glass when not using it, but glasses aren’t always left in the kitchen. Plastic cups and tumblers with different designs are always easy to differentiate, but we like to use glass drinking glasses too. For our family, the solution needed to be able to be attachable, and be used with any glass or cup, yet not permanent.
I think I’ve found the solution.
Rubber bands! A 99¢ pack of colored rubber bands. It’s always the simplest things. It seems so obvious now.
So easy. These drinking glass markers work perfectly. Each person can choose whatever color, or colors they like. AND if there’s a large group over for a get-together, the color combinations are endless.
Rubber bands are now kept hanging on the knob of the cabinet door where our drinking glasses are stored.
So far everyone here is gradually catching on to the system, and I’ve already seen a reduction in the dirty dishes. Simple solutions are so cool, aren’t they?
If you’re struggling with drinking glasses taking over your counter, try this one soon.
Have a lovely day!
