Garment Rack / July 31, 2018 / Terttu Laukkanen.
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.
These types of racks do not hold or display as many clothes at one time but are by far less messy looking. In most applications used for retail outlets the clothing racks are made of metal. This is the favored material because of its durability. In The Home In the home you will see these racks as storage options for clothing. They can be installed inside the closet but in some spaces they are stand alone systems. They are perfect for small spaces or for spaces that lack closet space and they are also perfect as closet organizers. In the home these racks can be made from either metal or plastic or a combination of the two materials.
Clothes dry naturally without the rough and tumble of being enclosed in a rotating metal drum. Eco-drying systems are energy free unlike the tumble dryer that gobbles up energy at maximum power all the time. Retractable washing lines come in multiway designs. Five washing lines extending to 4 metres give almost 70 feet of washing line on which to hang the laundry. Although often installed outdoors on two facing parallel walls they are also completely ideal for use indoors for example over the bath drying. Specially designed with the bath in mind floor standing mini clothes dryers serve as portable clothes horses. They are absolutely ideal for drying outside on sunny days either on a patio or anywhere in a garden. On wet or stormy days they can be used indoors in a conservatory or anywhere that is convenient. The heavy-duty versions are often used in commercial and industrial areas where towels are frequently used or in schools universities canteens or restaurants. The applications are endless. For me there are several key reasons for using one of the airers. Not only do I save energy I become carbon neutral and extend the life of my designer sweaters into the bargain.
They are moreover not practical for suburban backyards or the city apartments. And if you have pollen allergies you may want to consider using an indoor drying rack instead of the outdoor clothesline and still be able to dry your clothes. Drying racks offer a simple solution to drying clothes indoors without them remaining damp for a long time. They are usually portable take up little space and can be folded away when not in use. You can load these racks with clothes and easily move them to a convenient place. Racks for drying clothes are available in many designs and sizes to meet your specific drying needs. They range from expandable folding and flat drying racks to the ones with the traditional bars for drying.
