Look at this bright idea from one of our recent kitchen tours: Hannah and Nathan, the cooks in this kitchen, hang their dish gloves to dry right over the sink!

I only just noticed this as I was rereading this tour and I laughed out loud at the rather whimsical sight of these gloves dangling from their red yarn.

But it's also a practical, smart tip. This lets the gloves drip dry right into the sink. It looks like Hannah and Nathan rigged a cord from the low ceiling over the sink, and if you also have a low beam or sill over your sink this wouldn't be hard to do.

I could also imagine rigging a similar setup but placing it over a houseplant or herb pot.

What do you think? Would you hang your gloves over the sink? Do you even wear dish gloves? I don't — but I've been wondering if it would be nicer on my hands.
