Use a clothes dryer rack to dry your delicate clothing items and other items you do not want tumbled in your clothes dryer. A clothes dryer rack is a part made to fit inside your dryer. It’s a stationary platform that slips over the lip of your clothes dryer. Simply slip it into your clothes drier, lay your delicates onto the stationary platform, set your desired dryer time and start.
Use a clothes dryer rack to dry items that you don’t want tumbled inside your clothes dryer, such as sneakers, shoes, sweaters, stuffed animals and baseball caps, since it prevents tumbling and keeps your items from losing their shape. The vents or holes in the rack allow warm sir to gently circulate through to the item, while it remains stationary.
A variety of clothes dryer rack choices exist, so make sure you buy one that fits your dryer. The AP Wagner Appliance Parts Website lists what types of dryers the clothes dryer racks will fit. Or, just enter your clothes dryer’s model number into the search box and you will be presented with a list of clothes dryers parts for your appliance.
Indoors clothes dryer racks, great for apartment dwellers and those with little space
People come up with such clever buzzwords and “solar drier” is one I have been seeing a lot of lately. Basically a “solar drier” is another term for the good, old fashioned, clothes line. The clothes line conjures up such wonderful images or warm summer days and fresh smelling clothes. Even if you do not have a backyard, you can still line dry your clothes.
The ClothesLineShop.com offers a number of indoor clothes drying rack solutions. Here’s a clever one, a retractable clothes rack that you can put away after using. I guess the idea is that you can mount it on a wall and then pull out the lines when you need them. When you are done, just retract the lines and put away.
Of course, you can always just buy a folding or collapsible clothes rack at a home goods store like Target, a hardware store, or even a dollar store. Or you can use the racks in your home to use for drying like your closet’s clothes rack or the shower curtain rod. You can even use the steam from your shower to help get the wrinkles and smell out of any items of delicate clothing.
Some other tips for air-drying laundry:
- Hang items at night before bed and by morning they will be dry.
- Hang large sheets or blankets over your shower rod or hang outside between two chairs
- Hang items in your bathroom and use the steam from a shower to get wrinkle and smells out of your delicate items of clothing.
- Be sure to evenly-space out items, don’t bunch them together or they will never dry
- Take advantage of sources of natural sunlight and open windows, the breeze and warm temperatures will help dry your clothes faster
