Use Salad Spinner for Wringing Delicate Hand Wash Items

Do you often hand wash delicate items such as hosiery or bras? For an easier way to wring out the water, keep a spare salad spinner under your sink! People with painful arthritic hands, or those recovering from surgery, may find it especially difficult to squeeze items dry. The center push-button or battery operated type spinners make the job very easy. Even the inexpensive crank ones work, in about a dozen turns and will hold two or three items.

I tried it and it works! I hook my bras to avoid catching on edges. Thanks for the tip, Mary!
