Pop-Open Sweater Drying Rack


Product Information

Our Pop-Open Sweater Dryer is a space-saving way to quickly and easily air-dry sweaters, hand washed items and lingerie. Sized to fit over or inside the bathtub, it springs open for use and folds flat for storage. A quick-release buckle and strap maintains the arched position, allowing for all-around airflow and faster drying of garments. Ideal for dorms and small apartments. To collapse the dryer for storage, place your hands on either side of the oval as if driving a steering wheel. Then twist one hand forward, the other hand backward. The dryer will compress in on itself. Secure the folded dryer with the snap closure.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from work fairly well, but stained/mildewy right away I've had a few of these... I keep replacing because they get stained and have mildew spots almost right away. I use them over a tub, so plenty of air circulation and never fold them up so they can dry properly. Still, I'm getting creeped out by clothes drying on the moldy spots.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pop-Open Sweater Dryer It was great for drying my sweater but I couldn't close it. There aren't any directions of how to close it. Now I have a problem storing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works well This works great, and I love that it collapses down. This works just like those car window shades. Just be careful when you open it to hold it FAR from your face!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy It is really easy to open but you need to follow the instructions and keep it away from your face because it really pops!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When you haven't a lot of room . . . . . . this helps out when you need to dry something flat. I just put out over the bathtub and lay a "lay flat to dry" item over it. Be careful to lay out your item evenly, especially heavy items so that you don't flip it off the sides of the tub.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard to fold; frame broke 1st time I used it The first time I used it, I found it a bit difficult to arrange the sweater on it because the thing kept rocking every time I touched it. After the sweater dried, I tried to gently fold it, but it wouldn't fold down like it did in the store. I didn't try to force it, just gently twisted, but it wouldn't pop into the folded form. Then I saw that the stiff "frame" around the outside had broken. Now it won't fold down, nor does it have that sort of "potato chip" shape that it did originally. More like an upside down "V" now. Might still be useable, but I can't fold it, which is why I bought it in the first place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Increases drying space I place these on top of a regular folding dryer rack. It increases the space and prevents small items from falling through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, stores easily Pops open easily, and you can cinch it tight for a smaller space. Sweaters dry overnight easily. Folds up to be very compact. I wish the elastic that you use to keep it folded up was sewn on to the edge. Other than that, it's perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Cool I haven't actually used this yet, but I have opened it and it looks like it will do the job really well. My only problem was trying to fold it back up. No instructions. I just fiddled with twisting and pushing on it, and all of a sudden it folded into the original shape! Have no idea what I did that made it work! You do have to put the elastic back around it, or it pops right open.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helpful Helps save the garment from drying them and even better it folds up for storage. It great I can store it . Ease it uses

Rated 5 out of 5 by from laundry saver We seem to acquire more hand washable laundry and not the space to dry it. This helps save the garment and even better it folds up for storage.
Date published: 2013-04-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for small items This is a good product if you have just one item to dry at a time. It folds to a compact shape for storage. The mesh allows you to shape the clothing item you're drying, which is an advantage over a drying rack where the clothing hangs and can stretch out. Long sleeved sweaters will need to be folded over at the sleeves to fit on this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good purchase I love this so much because it replaces my old square mesh dryer which required plastic tubing and feet for it to sit atop a tub. This pop-open dryer sits easily on my tub and dryer. I use it for all of my hand wash items, delicates and sweaters. It's compact and easily stows away! I do sort of wish the strap was attached to the dryer itself so I don't have to worry about losing it.
Date published: 2012-05-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and stow away! This is a great tool for the laundry room. It stows away and takes up little space, but is such a help when trying to shape your sweaters and delicate items as they dry. I use this almost every time I do laundry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sweater dryer Easy to use and store. This eliminates hanger marks on the shoulders of my air-dried tops and everything dries quickly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from does the job This drying rack is smaller than most, and the rounded design means that it rocks a bit as you are positioning the sweater. I have not tried it on the tub.Because it is folded up each time and then reassembled, it does not sag. It folds up to a really tiny package, so storage in a small apartment or dorm room is easy. Because you can't stack several up in a tower, a larger space is needed to dry several sweaters at a time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This The Pop-Open sweater opener is fantastic! It fits easily on the small counter we have in our laundry room and it is so easy to put away. It even fits on top of the dryer. Love it!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect These are almost perfect, it would be even better if they had somehow attached the elastic that you wrap around for storing. I tend to lose those kinds of things due to my dogs so thats why I gave it a 4.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sweater rack, but hard to refold I live in a small space, and needed a sweater drying rack that could fold away. This fits over the tub nicely, and sweaters dry nice and soft with no wrinkles. It can be a bit of a comedy routine trying to refold the rack back to its storage size, and I have yet to get it to fold back to the size that it was when I bought it, but I seem to get it back to a manageable shape and size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This product is amazing. It cuts the drying time for a sweater. Even heavy ones usually will dry over night. Not east to refold though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty cool and useful These sweater dryers are great in the "folding up" ability; I store them in my bench hamper and they take up very little room. They're a little wobbly when you put them down, but I use them in the bathtub and that works well. You can definitely fit just about anything on them; they're quite large when fully opened.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drying Time Shortened. I love this sweater dryer. It takes up minimum space and air circulates all around. It is a must if you have items that need to air dry. The dryer is also easy to store.
Date published: 2010-12-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT Love this sweater dryer! This thing works like a dream and stores away in very little space. You can also put it in front of a fan for even faster drying. I have 4 of these!!!!!The only thing that keeps it from being a five is that it does take up a little bit of room when in use, but I use these during the day while my kids are at school.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have a lot of clothes that I won't put in the dryer. This keeps the perfect shape for my sweaters and blouses. I love that it folds up, but the truth is I am always using it, so I never put it away.

Community Q&A

I have spent nearly 30 minutes pushing and pulling on every inch of this dryer. And I cannot get it refolded. What is the secret?

This seems to be a common problem, it would be nice if folding instructions were included.
Asked by: unfolded
You hold it with your hands on the oblong ends and twist your hands while pushing your hands toward each other.
