Stemware Saver: Tethers Protect Wine Glasses in Washers

It is tempting to put champagne flutes and brandy snifters in the dishwasher but daunting as well – broken glass, swirled around by soapy water, is no fun at all to try and clean up … nor is the prospect of swallowing some should you mess a shard or two.

Thus, this simple tether by Gary Rose, available at Quirky. A flexible synthetic tube slots down onto a prong in your standard dish-washing machine, then snaps gently around the stem of your glass.

And voila: no more worrying whether your stemware will survive the next wash and rinse cycle. Not a bad gadget for frequent hosts.
