As anyone who’s tried to declutter their kitchen knows, even the smallest changes can make huge differences. At Kitchn, we’ve written about plenty of large kitchen organizers to store things such as cookware and cleaning supplies, but we also want to talk about smaller storage finds that you might not realize can make a big impact on your kitchen (like our favorite spoon rests, for instance.). That’s why we’re here to highlight a few of the best sink caddies and organizers that are perfect for corralling your dishwashing tools into one neat and tidy place.

Yup, you can finally say goodbye to your soap bottle sliding all over the place or your sponge staying wet and soggy from being stored in a dish with no drainage. These smart picks include ingenious counter organizers like sponge holders, trays, and caddies, as well as in-sink storage to save you space. The best part? Each pick below is an editor-favorite find. So go ahead and check out these awesome sink organizers — they might actually make you look forward to doing the dishes!

If you're a fan of using a dish brush to scrub off food and grime (check out our favorite pick), then you'll need a smart way to store it. This easy-to-use silicone caddy is customizable to fit around any faucet. Its perforated base also allows for drainage to keep the area dry, and its wide shape means that you can store a kitchen sponge, too.

Simplehuman's rust-proof caddy has room to store both a dish brush and sponge at the same time, with an adjustable base under the brush to accommodate longer handles. Suction cups make it easy to attach to the inside of your sink, so you won't lose any precious counter space. There's also a smaller slim model that holds just a sponge.

Kitchn readers couldn't stop buying this useful silicone sink tray when we first wrote about it two years ago, and we were equally impressed when we tried it out for ourselves! What makes it better than a stainless steel or ceramic option? The grooves prevent water build-up, so the bottoms of your soap bottles and sponges won't get grimy. And because it's heavy duty, it won't slide around when the area around your sink gets wet. It's even dishwasher safe.

Full Circle Home

Some sinkside helpers tend to call attention to themselves, and not in a good way. This two-piece find is not only low-key in appearance, but it's actually quite chic-looking with its solid matte finish and modular design. We also love its versatile build. Specifically, the cube-shaped tool holder has three compartments for all your dishwashing essentials, as well as a perforated bottom. No more soggy, moldy sponges!

One of our editors praised this compact sink caddy for creating much-needed organization in her tiny kitchen, and it even includes a removable soap dispenser. What's more, it's narrow enough to store behind her faucet, making it an even greater space saver.

The Container Store

The makers of one of our readers' favorite dish brushes created this stylish modular sink caddy. It includes a ceramic tray and caddy, plus a sponge insert to keep everything organized. It's large enough to accomodate a bottle of soap, a dish brush, and a sponge, keeping all your cleaning essentials in one spot.

For another caddy that won't take up any counterspace, check out this stainless-steel plate that expands to hover over your sink. You can use it to hold sponges and dish brushes, or turn it into a compact drying rack for bottles and glasses. You can also slide it across the length of your sink and hang towels to dry over the rack.

We've written about roll-up drying racks, which are great space savers but might take up too much sink real estate if you're working with limited room. That's where this corner drying rack comes in handy. The rack is small enough that it won't get in the way, but it's still convenient for holding sponges. Excess water and soap will drip off into the sink, so your sponge will actually dry off (finally!). You can also hang towels over the racks or use them for drying bottles and glasses.
