How to Dry the Inside of Narrow Vases

How to Dry the Inside of Vases

So how do you dry the inside of narrow vases? Drying them can be a challenging task due to their limited accessibility, shape or size. There are many articles written by bloggers and editors suggesting methods you can ‘try’. From paper towels to cotton balls, creative solutions are just that: creative. Truth is, they’re also cumbersome and ineffective. Let’s break a few of them down.

Paper towels are one of the most common items used to dry the inside of vases. However, whether they are inserted alone or wrapped around a kitchen utensil, they are an ineffective solution. They are hard to maneuver, don’t reach all of the moisture, and oftentimes get stuck inside.

A longshot effort to rid vases of moisture at the base is to pour rice inside and hope it gets every last drop. Not only will the rice not dry the inside, but it will leave a starchy film behind. Now not only do you have a partially dry vase, but most likely a cloudier (and dirtier) one than when you started.

Another common material that may seem to be effective is cotton in the form of cotton balls or swabs. However, there is just not enough surface area on either form of cotton to dry the interior of a vase. Plus, while cotton is absorbent, it loses its structure and can’t lock moisture in.

The truth is, the only effective solution to dry the interior of narrow vases is DryMeister. The long handle is sturdy yet flexible. The drying heads are reusable yet disposable, and the material wicks, absorbs and locks in moisture, without water dripping back inside when it’s removed from the vase. Even a sponge can’t do that. It’s time to stop trying new methods and use the one that makes drying vases easier: DryMeister.
