The pain of not being able to plunk your wine glasses into the dishwasher after indulging in a glass or ten of vino can now be cured with the 'Quirky Tether' stemware saver.

Allowing you to be a little lazy with your cleaning techniques, the Tether is a plastic rod that bends and binds so your glasses won't break. Gary Rose gave Quirky the idea of making these malleable seat belts for your stemware that are sold in a set of four. With a hollow end that slides over a dishwasher rod and a clip on the other end to lock in the glass, you're left without a clinking or cracking care.

Imbibe away drowsy drinkers, and leave the tough work to your washing appliances, because the Quirky Tether will leave your stemware sparkling and still solid for the next cork-popping occasion. Stats for Smart Stemware Stabilizers Trending: Older & Mild
