    Default What kind of clothes drying rack...

    do you have?

    I just bid on a metal wall one from ebay. I used to have a wooden fold up one, but it broke, and I can't seem to find any sturdy ones out there.

    I have two from Target and both are sturdy metal. I paid around $20 each for them (one I paid for with a Target gift card from Christmas!), which on first glance may not appear frugal, but when I think about how much I can save by air drying my clothes, I think it's worth it. I hated the cheapo wooden one I got at Wal-Mart. It didn't last a year.
    Every little bit helps.

    I also have a folding metal one that I bought at Target. I've had it about a year. It's held up really well. The wooded ones I had before my cats liked to chew on. UGH!

    I have my outdoor clothes lines. . . I have lines in my basement ceiling rafters. . . . I have extra spring type shower rods to hang in doorways, and I have a retractable clothes line in the guest room.

    My outdoor lines have a problem, dh hasn't had time to fix them yet. So I've been using my ones in the basement, they are just lines strung from one end of the laundry room to the other.

    I have two different vintage wooden ones, in different styles. I visited a Menonnite store recently which had the sturdiest model I've ever seen and it was very reasonably priced. I've had mine for years and when there is a breakage, etc., I repair it.

    I prefer to hang clothes outside on the clothes line, but when I can't I have a wooden drying rack that I purchased from Wal-mart for about $11. It isn't real stable, but it serves it's purpose.

    I have a coated metal one I got on sale almost 2 years ago for $8. It's great. I don't like the wooden ones as when I had one years ago, it stained my white clothes.

    I just have a cheap wooden one from Wal-Mart. I have to be really careful though because some of the bars try to fall down. I'll probably replace it with a metal one once I can't put it back together anymore lol.

    We have a clothes line outside and a wooden drying rack for inside. I also have a few hanger bars in the laundry room that we can hang stuff to dry there too.

    I have two clothes line T-posts and 4 clothes lines strung from them....they're about 20 ft. long maybe. It serves our purpose well. As far as when colder weather comes, I might invest in a used electric dryer, but I haven't decided yet. I guess if a 'free' or 'very cheap' one comes along, I'll have to snatch it up.
