Why should life be so simple? After years of looking for gadgets and appliances which impressed with their technical advance. Here I am drying laundry on a clothes rack! Not only that I have taught my children that this is tidier and more economical. Even my eldest now at university has asked for a wall-mounted airer. Her flat is so tiny with limited drying space. Instead of running up large laundry bills she knew what would be easy practical and economical. It really came home to me when I checked the energy usage of my tumble dryer. Like many I thought the arrival of the electric tumble dryer was a miracle. Like my mother before me who loved the twin tub washing machine. When the automatic came out she had such difficulty switching.
So often I worry what is happening when I put clothes in a tumble dryer. On holiday I used one to dry towels and holiday clothing. After successive loads the filter was jammed with fibres with different layers of colours like those bottles you often see for sale with different layers of coloured sand. Clothes airers dont remove the fibres from my clothing and household items so they do not lose their shape or their strength. I have noticed that over time continued use of a tumble dryer reduced the useful life of my clothes. Drying racks come in wall mounted floor standing or multiway washing line versions. All drying racks dry clothes naturally or if placed above or next to a household wall heater will have the benefit of secondary heat and warm air drying.
Whether small or large all racks for drying clothes allow you to make best use of available space. If you are only looking for a rack to dry undergarments stockings and socks a simple clothes rack will be just be fine. If you mostly want to dry delicate clothing like baby clothes and sweaters then you may want to go in for a rack with drying shelves. If you want a metal drying rack then you should ensure that they are specially coated to avoid staining your clothes. All these clothes rack are great for apartments dorm rooms and vacation homes. Using an indoor drying rack is easy practical and economical. By using a clothes drying rack you can skip the clothes dryer and also save precious energy.
