I am the mom-inventor and designer of the Mommy Genius Drying Racks. These kitchen countertop accessories are the perfect place to dry or display just about anything including baby bibs, food-storage bags, bottles, and dish towels. My "Aha" moment occurred in May 2008 when I had two young children who both wore bibs during meals. That meant that I had to deal with 6 to 8 food-covered bibs each day! I tried putting the bibs in the laundry after each meal, but they would get moldy sitting in the laundry basket. I liked rinse-off bibs, but there was never a good place to put them to dry. There were always wet bibs lying all over the countertop, and the lunch bibs were never dry by dinner. I decided that I needed a convenient place next to the kitchen sink to hang the bibs up to dry. Since nothing on the market was right for hanging baby bibs up to dry, I decided to invent the ideal drying rack. I started my business, Mommy Genius, in June 2010.
