Many communities no longer allow clothes to be dried outside and winter weather makes it impossible in colder climates. Since clothes dryers consume large amounts of energy, a clothes rack will pay for itself in less than a month.

Clothes racks today are different from what your grandmother used. Today’s clothes racks come in a variety of shapes and sizes and can be decorative, as well. Many clothes racks use hangers to reduce or eliminate wrinkles.

A portable clothes rack works well in the basement or side room in the winter and on the patio in the summer where zoning allows. The fresh smell and feel of naturally dried clothes is enjoyed by everyone.

Tripod-Style Clothes Dryers

The tripod-style clothes rack folds and stores easily when not in use, is sturdy, and durable. A wide base is best for heavy use, providing maximum stability.

The tripod works well with everything from lingerie, slacks, shirts, to heavy wet mittens, coats, and athletic equipment.

Tripods look nice on the deck or patio, too.

Folding Clothes Racks

Grandma’s old clothes rack is the familiar accordion folding kind and has stood the test of time. There is also the X folding style clothes rack which works nice for hangers and shirts or pants.

Accordion style folding clothes racks hold the most amount clothes in the smallest amount of space, making this the preferred clothes rack for the small apartment or utility room.

An electric clothes dryer can consume $30-$40 per month; laundry mats cost even more. Using a clothes rack is good for the environment and your wallet.

After cost savings, the feel and smell of fresh air dried clothes is the main benefit.

An automatic clothes dryer also wears clothes faster than clothes racks. With all the benefits of air dried clothes comes longer life for your garments, saving you even more money.

Adjustable Clothes Racks

I like the adjustable clothes rack. It handles everything for the typical shirts and undergarments to long coats and bed sheets. Everyone should have at least one adjustable rack for specialty clothes items.

You can store clothes on the adjustable for wrinkle free dress shirts and pants.

Adjustable clothes racks come in two types: height adjustable and width adjustable. Some have both features.

Umbrella Clothes Racks

I think the umbrella clothes rack is the neatest looking thing to have on the patio. It just looks cool with each arm stretched out with clothes waving in the wind.

After the accordion style clothes rack, the umbrella holds the most at one time. The umbrella style also holds a greater variety of clothing. The arms are great for shirts and other garments hung on a hanger while linens dry from the lines.

Bed sheets dry fast when draped over the entire top of the umbrella. You can hang clothes on hangers from the arms while sheets are draped over the top.
