Chances are if you’ve owned a dishwasher for a few years, there are spots where the plastic has worn through and the metal rack is rusting. Products like ReRack and Uber Goop are designed to fix this damage before it becomes more of an eyesore or even a danger to your dishes. You can also use these products on shower racks or other bathroom racks that are showing signs of rust.
Available in white and gray, ReRack is a flexible synthetic rubber that sticks well to most pre-coated vinyl racks and is heat and water resistant. What exactly Uber Goop is made of is a mystery, but it too can be used to coat any metal product except sheet metal and wires. Uber Goop also comes with vinyl caps to cover tines rather than re-coat them, which may or may not be more durable. It’s sold in white, light blue, and gray.
Uber Goop comes in more colors, but looks like it’s only sold at Amazon, whereas you might actually find ReRack at your local hardware store. ReRack runs about $6 a bottle and Uber Goop with 25 caps runs about the same price.
