Laundry Airer - The Secret To Longer Lasting Clothes


Visitors: 161

Household chores can be a nuisance but none more so than the ongoing cycle of washing and drying the laundry. These days we are lucky there are many appliances to help with the ever-increasing piles of clothes, bed sheets and towels. The washing machine is one appliance I would miss, but not so the tumble dryer.

Far from being an essential piece of equipment I think of my tumble dryer as a money guzzler, it uses vast amounts of electricity and shortens the life span of my clothes causing elastic to loosen and fabrics to become threadbare. Tumble dryers should only be used in an emergency drying situation.

To save money, the environment and your favourite items of clothing invest in a clothes airer or drying rack. There is a very wide range out there you just need to find the right airer to suit your needs.

  • If you are immobile or in a wheelchair the ideal airer to go for would be the wall mounted pull out, push in type. It can be mounted at exactly the correct height for you. The wall mounted airer is also a good option for those who have limited floor space.
  • If you need additional outdoor drying space but don't like the idea of your lawn being invaded or if your only outdoor space is a balcony. You could purchase a weatherproof airer that can be mounted on an outside wall. Buy an extra set of brackets and you would be able to utilise it both in and outdoors.
  • Indoor washing lines are a great idea for those with large families who create a lot of wet washing. Fix it to a wall and when the heavens open simply pull it out attach to the opposite wall and hey presto up to 69feet of drying space. When not in use some models even retract into their own smart little case. That can't be bad.
  • Floor standing airers are great because you can move them about the house depending on where your heat source is coming from at that particular time. Some are designed with space saving in mind as they fit inside the bath - very useful for that “hand wash do not spin" item.
Remember buying a clothes airer is an investment. In the long run it will save you money and increase your drying space. If you go for a cheaper type of drying rack it is very likely that you will have to replace it within a year therefore proving to be a false economy. Look out for quality airers with a manufacturers guarantee.
