  • DryMeister Tips & Tricks: How to Dry the Sides of Containers

    Welcome back to the second blog of our Tips & Tricks four-part series. Although drying the sides of containers seems obvious, we are here to share a few best practices to help ensure a completely dry finish. Using DryMeister can take a little bit of getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, it will become second nature. Get in There and Dry The long handle is designed to be strong and flexible, bending just enough when you need to apply more pressure. It adapts to containers of many shapes and sizes: water bottles, baby bottles, vases, carafes, and unique glassware. When it comes to drying the sides of containers, don’t be afraid to push against them with the drying head. This not only ensures thorough drying, but it also leaves a streak-free finish on glass items. Use caution with thin glass and avoid applying excessive force, as it may lead to breakage. Apply Some Pressure When Drying Before we go any further, remember to shake out your container after washing it. DryMeister’s drying heads are made of a material that wicks, absorbs, and locks in water. This means that water won’t drip back down when you take DryMeister out after use. That being said, there are many ways to maneuver the handle and drying head to get all of the water drops. Go ahead and experiment with different angles and amounts of pressure to find the optimal way to dry your containers; each container will require a slightly different drying technique. Dry Up, Down, and All Around To use DryMeister effectively, the recommended motion during use is up and down, not spinning, twisting or rotating. You will notice the arms of the drying head moving in all different directions as you maneuver it inside the container. This is just one design feature that makes DryMeister so functional. One trick is to hold the container upside down with one hand, and use DryMeister with the other. You should be able to see inside after drying to make sure you have uniform drying results.

  • DryMeister Tips & Tricks: How to Insert a Drying Head

    Welcome to the first blog of our Tips & Tricks four-part series, dedicated to helping you get the most out of using your DryMeister. If you've ever struggled to reach the far corners and bases of your favorite water bottles, carafes, and vases, to name a few, DryMeister is here to show you the easiest way to get there. Connecting the Drying Head and Handle: Ensuring a Secure Fit To ensure a positive drying experience, securely connect the handle to the drying head. No one wants a drying head to come off and get stuck inside. To help prevent this rare mishap, give the handle an extra twist to make sure it’s tight. It’s actually easier to hold a drying head in one hand and screw the handle into it with the other hand. Getting into Small Openings: Lead with One Drying Arm How to insert a drying head sounds pretty obvious, but read on. The Standard size drying head is designed for openings 1.25” wide or greater, while the Small size drying head fits into openings 1” wide or greater. These are the absolute smallest size openings each size drying head is designed to go through. If you follow this next step, you should never have a tight fit using the correct size drying head for corresponding openings: Just before inserting a drying head, lead with one drying arm first, and then follow with the rest. Important Note: Mind the Size of the Opening While DryMeister is a versatile tool for various container types, it's crucial to match the drying head size with the container opening. Attempting to insert a Small drying head into an opening less than 1” wide may result in it getting stuck inside your container. If you’re unsure about the opening size, grab a ruler or tape measure to double check. DryMeister will not fit inside an opening that is 7/8" wide or less. Stay tuned for more insightful tips and tricks in our ongoing four-part series! We're committed to making your drying experience with DryMeister a satisfying and enjoyable one. Next time, we'll be exploring techniques for drying the sides of containers. Until then, happy drying!

  • How to Prevent a Cloudy Glass Vase

    Glass vases are a staple in any home's décor, usually on-the-ready for the next floral arrangement to arrive. However, many are cloudy with build-up and scum that has accumulated on the inside over time. Cleaning inside glass vases is important, but what is just as important is drying them to avoid scum and water spots. The Cloudy Vase Cloudiness in glass vases is a common result of hard water deposits and residue from flowers left in the water unchecked over time. Wash and scrub as we may, we still aren’t addressing the root cause of the problem – inadequate drying of the inside after thorough washing. We can’t neglect our glass vases after use if we want them to be clear for the next bunch of flowers. Common Cleaning Techniques for a Vase Common DIY cleaning methods include vinegar, salt, baking soda, and even denture tablets. These techniques often come into play in a pinch when we try to get rid of the scum stuck to the glass. While some poorer quality glass is inherently cloudy, there is a lot of good quality glass that deserves good care. It’s easy to hastily wash a vase and put it away even though it’s not totally clean and dry. Good news! Instead of reactive solutions to this problem, there’s one proactive step you can take to avoid cloudy glass: dry it. The Neglected Step: Drying the Inside One crucial step in the vase cleaning process is the proper drying of the inside. Washing with soap and water, or even carefully placing the vase in the dishwasher, might seem like all you can do to get the vase clean. However, for many vases, even these methods leave moisture trapped inside, creating an environment for scum and cloudy build-up to return. DryMeister was recently invented to allow you to dry the inside of containers like vases. Many odd-shaped, narrow, or tall vases can be very difficult or impossible to reach and dry the inside. After washing them and rinsing them out, add DryMeister to your vase maintenance routine. You’ll love having a clear vase to pull out when you buy, or are given, the next bunch of flowers. How Does DryMeister Work? DryMeister’s flexible handle and patented drying heads absorb and lock in excess moisture, leaving no opportunity for scum to develop on glass. Simply screw the handle onto a drying head and insert DryMeister into the vase. With a little pressure, go up and down the sides, maneuvering the drying head to wick the moisture and dry the surface. For the bottom, pin down a drying arm with the silicone tip and swipe around the base and corners for a lint-free shine from top to bottom.
