Don’t you hate having all your counters covered by the just-washed clothing items that say ‘hang to dry’ or ‘dry flat’ in their washing instructions? I use drying racks for clothes instead, and they are so convenient. Some are attached to the wall and fold out or are attached to the ceiling and get pulled down and some are free-standing and can get tucked into a closet when not in use. Now that it’s summer, is there anything better than the smell of air and sun-dried laundry? If you agree but can’t picture yourself with a mouth full of clothespins and a rope across the backyard, the stylish freestanding drying racks can be used outside, weather permitting.
The ‘new clothesline company’ produces two drying solutions. One is called the DUO small item laundry drying accessory.
