While dining at a friend's home last week, I got a peek at her creative plastic bag drying solution. She keeps it hidden out of sight behind a curtain in her pantry, but the bags are close enough at hand for a trip to the farmer's market.
Many of us already have these ugly little clothes drying gadgets around the house (or have a mom or grandma who does). Besides drying your dainties, it can do double duty to dry your plastic bags and Ziplocs, rendering this hunk of plastic less junky and more useful. Since counter space in my home is already at a premium, I don't have room for the more common type of plastic bag dryer, so this is perfect.
Stay tuned, I hope to have a DIY version of this using old wooden clothespins in the near future.
