Indoor laundry drying racks are essential equipment in a clean and organized home. You’ll need a clothes drying rack for your delicate clothing, as well as to dry wet items that are waiting to be laundered. Also, by regularly air-drying a portion of your laundry, you can save a significant amount of electricity – enough to notice the difference in your bill.

You can keep these in the laundry room or another convenient and out-of-sight location. Just make sure there is adequate ventilation and enough warmth to dry clothes. As you can see, there are lots of models to choose from so you should be able to find the one that fits your needs and the space you have available.

Hanging Laundry Racks

The racks can be hung in a closet, but make sure you allow for air circulation. They are all fairly lightweight and designed to only hold a few light items.

Wall Mounted Drying Racks

Most of these have the advantage of folding out of the way when not in use. You will need a sturdy wall on which to attach these, as wet clothes can be surprisingly heavy.

Folding Laundry Drying Racks

Pay careful attention to the size when buying a folding drying rack. Not all are designed to hold a full load of clothes. These fold up flat so you could slip them alongside the washing machine for storage if you wish.
