What is a Drying Rack

Drying your clothes after you did your laundry can be a challenge. There is, of course, an option of an electric dryer, but some garments just can't take all the heat and tumbling so you'll need to hang them up to air dry. Also, did you know that electric dryer is the second largest appliance when it comes to energy consuming? If you're environmentally conscious and want your delicate clothes to last longer, a drying rack is an excellent alternative to a dryer. The racks come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, and in our guide, we'd like to look at the best ones.

To organize your dirty clothing, you might need a laundry basket. Also, we suggest you check out towel warmers; they are incredibly useful for keeping your towels pleasantly warm.
