The plastic coating on dishwasher racks can wear off over time. To extend the life of your dishwasher rack:

  1. Snip off the end of the rusted tines with wire cutting pliers.
  2. Lightly sand the metal to remove any rust.
  3. Apply dishwasher rack coating (available at appliance stores) to the bare ends. To speed the process, turn the rack upside down, and dip each tine in the bottle of coating.
  4. Allow the plastic coating to dry at least 24 hours before using the dishwasher.
