If you want to hang clothes to dry – whether to save money or to hang delicate pieces of clothing – it can be a pain to find the space for a portable laundry line or flat drying rack , especially if you don’t have a dedicated laundry room. Here are some ideas to help.
First, make sure as much water is removed from the clothing first. You might want to do an extra spin dry cycle in the washing machine first or place the items between two towels to remove a bit more water.
Next, think of where you can install an expandable laundry line. The most obvious place is over a bathtub – if you hang it high enough, it shouldn’t even interfere with kid’s bathtime. You can buy them for a few dollars at places like WalMart and Target.
Need to hang something to dry right now? You can also use a shower rod as a laundry line in a pinch too as well as towel racks.
You can also get a foldable flat drying rack, which is basically mesh placed over a wire frame. If you don’t have suitable floor space, place a beach towel on your bed with the flat drying rack on top of it.
