Question: What dish rack do you use?
Answer: Natural materials! Whenever possible I try to stick with natural materials in my home. That means unpainted, uncoated – and usually undecorated. For a dish rack, I think wood is good option!
I have also had stainless steel ones in the past. If they are marked and labeled and sold as stainless steel then they are generally going to be safe/ lead-free, and a good choice for a non-toxic kitchen.

Here’s a wooden one that is similar to the one I have used in my home. I also use the top of my stove (more often than not) to pile clean dishes on (until the kids dry them and put them away) … and my husband’s favorite drying rack is our dishwasher! He hates using it for washing dishes, but washes dishes by hand and loads them up to dry on the dishwasher racks.
Not a complex answer… but there you go!
Here are some links to these products on Amazon:
- Bamboo Dish Rack
- Stainless Steel Dish Rack
- Ikea also has some nice, simple, non-toxic/ safe choices!
As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
