Kashering Sinks

How do you make your sink kosher?

Realistically, get separate plastic tubs that fit in your sink, one for meat and one for dairy. A more lenient approach is to use separate rubber-coated racks, and the dishes can rest on this rack (like hot pots can rest on a trivet on the countertop) as you wash them.

Keep with your color theme here to avoid confusion--for example, red or pink racks and tubs for meat, blue for dairy, yellow for pareve [neither milk nor meat] items.
