Dish drainers are one of the dirtiest items in the kitchen, often collecting harmful mildew and bacteria, so they need cleaning often.

Many racks come with several parts, such as the bottom drip tray to catch excess water and a holder for flatware such as knives, forks and spoons.
The sink should be big enough, as well as full enough, to submerge the whole drainer. For each gallon of water, add one-fourth of a cup of bleach.
Once the drainer is in the bleach water, soak for 20 minutes.

Once the drainer is completely clean, rinse it with clean water thoroughly and let it dry.
