A dishwasher hack has been making the rounds online

The dishwasher, one of life’s greatest inventions!  If only they could find a way to have the machines dry as well as a wash!



A grandmother named Babs posts life hacks on TikTok.  And she showed people an easy way to dry their dishes after running them in the dishwasher.



Just drape a dry, terrycloth dish towel over the door and close it.  Then wait five minutes.  That’s it.

The towel is supposed to absorb all the moisture, so your dishes end up dry.  But we’ve seen a few people online who claim it doesn’t actually do much.



Other people pointed out that you can also just leave the door open a little without a towel, and that works too.
