far sgocciolare i piatti

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the expression far sgocciolare i piatti, which means to let the dishes (drip) dry. Literally, the expression means to let the dishes drip. 

See the expression used below:

Quando abitavo in Italia, mi mancava non avere la lavastoviglie; ogni sera dopo cena dovevo lavare i piatti e farli sgocciolare su uno scolapiatti.

When I used to live in Italy, I missed not having a dishwasher; every night after dinner I had to wash the dishes and let them dry on the dish rack.
