Fold-Away Drying Rack
Perfect for small spaces
This Fold-Away Drying Rack is a great solution for small laundry rooms like mine. I occasionally use it for clothes that are damp, but what I use it for most is to hang my kidsâ¿¿ clothes on as I pull them out of the dryer so I have less ironing to do! Between this, the Chrome Triple Laundry Bag Stand (pictured below it) & some sunny yellow paint, my tiny laundry room looks nice & is very functional. In fact, our realtor recommended leaving the drying rack extended because it shows prospective home buyers that, despite its small footprint, our laundry room has more workable space than they might expect otherwise.

I installed this drying rack last week and have already gotten quite a bit of use out of it. Once it is installed correctly, it's sturdy and holds quite a bit. I gave it four stars instead of five because the hardware included (wall anchors and screws) did not hold the rack securely to the wall. The screws are too narrow for the anchors so this required the purchase of a couple of different sized screws until I got the right ones. I think they were a size 12 or 14, sorry, I don't remember which. Once I got bigger screws the rack held firmly and I love it.

I did a lot of research prior to purchasing this drying rack. There isn't much floor space in my laundry room, plus I was looking for something that would be out of the way when not in use, but easy to set up quickly. This has definitely fit the bill. I haven't put anything super-heavy on it yet, but it's worked very well for sweaters and lingerie. I also use it for kitchen towels & rags & misc. wet items I want to dry before tossing them into the dirty laundry hamper. It's very inconspicuous when folded away, and I love that it doesn't take up any floor space. I only wish it was a big larger so I could dry more items on it at the same time. But for $35, I'd consider it well worth it. It's made my laundry room much more efficient. If I had the wall space, I'd order a second one!

I installed this in my basement stairwell to dry kitchen towels, rags, etc., so I don't have to trek all the way down to the laundry room every time something gets wet. I love that it folds away so easily, and the rungs are strong enough to hold even sopping wet bath towels (although they appear flimsy at first glance). I do wish the rungs were farther apart, though; it's difficult to get even my tiny hands in-between them. I also wish the back rung was farther away from the wall, since whatever you hang on it inevitably touches the wall.
