They are typically less durable for the home than they are for retail outlets because the expectation is that they will be holding less clothes and will be used less. A clothes rack for the home are easy to install and are usually sold with all the necessary mounting hardware. There are some models that are free standing and have wheels for easy transport from place to place in the room. A clothes rack is one of those items that no one really gives any thought to but they are also one of those items that it is hard to picture being without. How many times have you found that after youve washed your clothes that you have run out of space to hang them up to dry? Almost everyone has come across this problem and if youre cramped for spec its even worse.
1. Space: How much of space do you have at home to accommodate your clothes drying rack(s)? If you dont live in a house generally accommodating a big clothes dryer is a problem. In such an event all you need to do is be smart about your purchase and get the folding portable variety instead. Budget: this is the all important consideration. How much of money are you willing to spare on your clothes rack? The greater amount of laundry you have to handle on a regular basis the greater the investment that you have to make. Volume: The amount of washing and laundry that you need to do are also important considerations as they will help you pick the right kind of dryer. If you have a small volume of washing try getting a mobile clothes airer or even a retractable clothes drying rack. If you have a larger volume of laundry to deal with try the umbrella model.
The washing machine manufacturers called them Tub watchers. Because they loved to handle the clothes to make sure they were properly washed! When my Mum gave in and we bought her an automatic she would sit and watch it go round for ages. When the tumble dryer arrived we didnt realise how it baked our clothes and removed fibres And the bills my goodness how electricity costs pile up. Well frankly I could kick myself with all these years of excess. The clothes airer is such a natural way of drying. It fits beautifully with my day and takes only minutes to fill. Then I simply get on with the rest of my tasks. The strange thing is it gives me more time to do other things. It simply means there is a long gap between hanging laundry and taking it off the rack. Instead of a day filled with washing and drying it becomes an overnight wash followed by a day of drying.
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.
