Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Drying Rack I purchased this drying rack so I could mainly dry wet towels in the warmer weather. It has a decent amount of space and the mesh panel on top was a plus. However, after about a month white pieces from the mesh panel started flaking off which was irritating. Overall, I would recommend this product because it is useful and works. I just think the mesh panel is a little cheap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great capacity with a small footprint Previously I had a small wooden drying rack, but I found that the white paint on the wooden rods was starting to come off on my clothes. My biggest concern about this rack was the size. It DOES fit in my bathtub, which is a standard size tub, and the rack holds a lot of clothes. Very satisfied!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This drying rack is awesome! Not only do you have plenty of room to dry clothes, you also have different ways to hang the clothes to dry; the rack can be used with or without the mesh on top, and it’s the perfect size and sturdy. After using this rack for little over a month, I don’t think I can live without it lol!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't use this outside Lots of space and easy to use. But don't plan on using it in direct sunlight. The edge of the mesh top turns to dust in very short time, getting your freshly washed items dusty and eventually it fails entirely and the frame won't stay in position.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Polder 2-Tier Mesh-Top Clothes Drying Rack I purchased this approximately one year ago. This Drying Rack is fantastic. It is easily opened and after a little practice closes quickly for compact storage. Recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quadrupled my drying space This drying rack allows me to air dry many more clothing items now...gone are the days of hang-drying my sweaters, which usually stretched them out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mine falls apart easily Maybe I purchased a defective model, but this drying rack easily falls apart. The dowel rods don't stick securely into the slots--and I spend more time trying to "balance" the rods just so that they will not fall down once I put clothing on them to dry. It is very lightweight, so be sure not to overload it otherwise the whole unit will topple over. If properly secured, it can hold lots of items at once since it is double tiered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Drying Rack This drying rack is compact when folded so it is easy to store away. The mesh top is great to dry sweaters on so they don't stretch. It is one of the main reasons I chose this drying rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Drying Rack! I already have a wooden drying rack that I bought from Container Store a few years ago. When I saw this metal one on clearance, I nearly knocked someone down to get to it. I like the fact that the rack is easy to open and close. I can store it under my staircase in the basement. I have used it to hang my delicates to dry. Great product, good bargain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone Needs One This replaces a warped wooden drying rack. It stores easily and has plenty of drying space. The mesh cover is great and a welcome addition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This folding dryer has a mesh removable cover on the top which is great for drying clothes that need to be dried flat such as sweaters and many knit items. This dryer holds a number of items but doesn't take up a lot of room. It folds up nicely and can be stored easily when not in use. It's also pretty sturdy and is well made.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Impressive When removed from box one of the crosswires was not attached on one side. I wanted to take it back and get a different one but I can't stop using it. I will try to repair it myself - maybe superglue. It is just what was needed in laundry room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rack! This is a rack that doesn't take up too much space but also has a lot of space for lots of clothes. Love the mesh sweater drier it comes with for the top. Bonus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yeah for dry clothes This dryer works really well I like that it stores very well my only complaint would be I wish they made a bigger one for family use and it could probably be priced a little bit less I think it's a little overpriced. Overall though I'm happy with its performance unhappy with purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes up little space and is sturdy I've had this drying rack for over a year now. It is sturdy and has a good amount of room to dry clothes. I like the mesh top, its great for smaller items and the mesh lets the garments breathe. Its very easy to fold and store away, takes up very little space when folded.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of drying space with a few drawbacks Lots of hanging space for a small space. Also easy to store. Two drawbacks: (1) the mesh is small so it will not fit a larger item like a man's sweater for air drying and (2) if you don't position the bottom arms in the correct way the whole thing collapses easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect I love this product and am using it every week for my laundry. The mesh top is perfect for drying one or two sweaters, about all I wash in a week or for tights or other things you don't want to stretch, etc. The lower lever that locks the rack in place is really secure and the rubber feet also stop it from sliding around. I also like the flexibility of not using the bottom lever to fit perfectly into my bathtub for drippier wash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best drying rack ever. This rack is sturdy and holds a ton of clothes. It cost a lillte bit more, but is well worth it; you don't have to struggle with setting it up or worry about it blowing over on a windy day..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! Has plenty of room for several pieces and is very sturdy. Only drawback is that the mesh piece on top doesn't last very long

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Drying Rack I needed a drying rack for a smaller laundry room. This rack is perfect and can be raised or lowered to different heights to accommodate larger items. It also features a versatile mesh top for drying sweaters and delicate items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Required for Spring The 2-tier mesh-top drying rack was the best option for replacing our old wooden drying rack. The price was right, especially when we knew how much we would use it every spring, summer, fall and even indoors during the winter. This model has plenty of room to dry both small and medium size items and the mesh top is perfect for drying delicate sweaters and blouses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased this drying rack to replace one I'd had for about 10 years and am completely satisfied with it. There is more hanging room than I was expecting based on some of the other reviews. I try to avoid drying most of my clothes and needed a rack that could fit at least at least 1/2 a load of laundry. This one definitely does the job. While the bottom rack does hang somewhat low to the ground as other reviews mention, it's perfect for smaller items like socks, underwear, swimsuit pieces, camisoles, etc. The mesh panel is a great additional feature, as is the fact that the rack folds two ways - either vertical or flat to the ground - for storage. Also, the frame is more sturdy and solid than I expected. This is an overall fantastic product for the price!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solid product, but the mesh net ripped The drying rack is sturdy with plenty of space to dry clothes. It is also very easy to store. The one thing that was pretty disappointing was that the mesh netting which holds the rack in the open position ripped after only the second use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Rack I have owned this rack for many years, and just purchased another for my son. It is sturdy and can hold quite a bit of clothing. It is well made; the welds are clean, I have had no pulling on pantyhose or other fragile garments. I heartily recommend this drying rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I use for my lingerie. I like that it fits in the tub so my lingerie is hidden and out of the way. It also fold flat and I slip it between my fridge and the wall in my kitchen so it's out of the way. I like the mesh panel I use it mainly to dry hats and gloves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for clothes I don't put in the dryer! I use to hang things up to dry all over my bathroom and I hated the way it looked. This drying rack holds a lot of items and contains it all so nicely. It fits in my tub, so it's never in the way. The price isn't bad. I also like that the "feet" are covered in rubber. It's good quality.

Does the "optional mesh panel" come with the rack?

Folding up

The description says this folds to 2". I just received this yesterday and folded, it's still 4" in the middle. Am I doing something wrong? It doesn't "lock" closed or anything. Photo attached.
Asked by: EBinNJ
Oops... I was folding it wrong and now it's more compact. It's not just closing it up the obvious way... need to play around with a little more (maybe could use some instructions for those of us who would just try to push it shut the natural way...) :)

I have a cat who likes to walk up and down my wooden drying rack. I have to replace that rack cause it stains my clothes.

Do you think my kitty will be OK on walking on this drying rack?
Asked by: honeybeem
A couple of considerations should be made in choosing a new rack to make sure it is cat-compatible. One is the material: is the wooden material of your current rack used by the cat for traction? The wooden material can be pierced by your cat's claws; the powder-coated steel tubing of our Polder Rack cannot. The removable mesh-top of our Polder Rack is vulnerable to damage by your cat's claws. Are you able to remove and store the top out of your cat's reach? We made several alternate product recommendations for you to consider below.
