Air-drying laundry is a great and easy way to do your part for the environment. But if you live in an apartment or small house, or simply have more clothes than a clothesline can handle, it can prove a challenge trying to find space to hang all those clothes. Here are some creative and compact options for airing out your laundry.
Gaiam has a Wall Shelf Drying Rack that, as the name suggests, mounts on a wall as a wooden shelf, with the dowel drying rack expanding out from beneath accordion-style. The website notes that it can also be used to dry flowers, pasta or herbs.
If you’re looking for something even more compact, neatfreak has a Retractable Clothes Line that can be mounted inside or out. When you’re ready to dry your clothes, simply extend the line up to 15 meters, and then roll it back up once you’re finished.
If you’re really cramped for space, the Laundry Lift allows you to easily hang clothing from the ceiling, which means laundry can also benefit from the fact that warm air rises.
