This Game-Changing Dish Caddy Cleared Up My Kitchen Counter in Seconds
If you know me, you know that I like to keep my home neat and tidy. Sure, maybe obsessing over the best ways to organize the inside of my fridge or wrangle my beat-up boxes of plastic wrap into something (somewhat) aesthetically pleasing is only fueling my ultimate psychological need for control, but I’d argue that maintaining an orderly home makes any daily task 100 times easier — especially when it comes to spending time in the kitchen. That’s why I’m always on the lookout for stellar products that make the space more efficient and keep it in tip-top shape.
One of the brands I turn to most often for attractive and effective kitchen essentials is Full Circle. These organized kitchen geniuses never stop coming up with solutions to cooking and cleaning problems I didn’t even know I had. Take a look around my space and you’ll find a paper towel alternative that saves me tons of moolah, a dish soap dispenser that finally banished my trusty bottle of Dawn from the countertop, and a cast iron brush that eliminates the (elbow) grease while cleaning any pan — and that’s just naming a few! Recently, however, I stumbled across my favorite Full Circle invention of all: STASH, their handsome little sink caddy.
Seemingly simple, this unbelievably useful caddy has totally cleaned up my sink-side counter space. The find is complete with two pieces: a versatile rectangular dish and a cleaning tool holder, which nestles perfectly inside if desired. It’s sleek, slim, and sturdy, and the plate can be utilized in a variety of ways. (I use mine to hold dish soap and one of my favorite mini scrub brushes.) The tool holder has three compartments, and can house much more than you’d expect just by looking at the thing. The holder’s design is also a prime example of what makes Full Circle such a brilliant brand. Its compartments are separated by a plastic insert with a perforated bottom, so your sponge will dry out after every use and your fingers will never be subjected to that awful, moldy sponge smell ever again.
I find that its matte, ceramic construction has enough weight to support multiple cleaning brushes in one of the three compartments, a sponge in another, and a cast iron chain-mail scrubber in the third. Before finding the STASH, I tried in-sink organizers (which always overcrowded my scrubbing space), stuffing said cleaning helpers into jars (a gross pool of debris-filled water would pool at the bottom, yuck!), or laying them on the counter (always a bad idea). It looked like a perpetual dishwashing crime scene!
Well, disaster no more, thanks to this simple solution. Plus, because the handy organizer is crafted with such high-quality materials, I’ve found it doesn’t age, scratch, or chip (believe me, I’ve had mine for over a year now and I am an absolute klutz). And, the entire set up is a total breeze to clean. The majority of the time, I’ll run the pieces under some hot water to rid them of the dried soap droplets and leftover foods bits that may have accumulated; however, on rare occasions, the thing requires a deep clean, so I just pop it in the dishwasher and boom! It’s as good as new.
Whether you spend loads of time in your kitchen or find that you’re only at the sink cleaning up after takeout, snagging yourself a STASH will not only streamline your cleanup procedure, it’ll also give your entire kitchen a new lease on life. Trust me, having an organized dishwashing space will beautify your entire space!
