When I was younger, my mother always told me to never put knives in the sink. She said this would lead to unexpected cuts when reaching into the sink. So, as far back as I can remember, I would leave knives that needed to be washed on the counter by the sink. Until that is, I discovered the coolest colander! To me, it’s more than a colander. I usually don’t wash dishes several times a day. I will let them collect in the sink and wash them after dinner. I just don’t have time to wash dishes several times a day. I collect silverware and knives in this cool colander! It’s much cheaper at Ikea, so if your able to order from the Ikea website or have an Ikea nearby, that is what I suggest! Here is the link to the colander on Amazon here. Of course, this makes for the most amazing colander for rinsing veggies and fruits as well.
