Clothes Dryer


Here is a photo of the clothes dryer (drying rack, whatever you want to call it), that my Mom and cousin picked up for me.  They happened to be in the right place and the right time.

 The price tag reads $58.95.

They paid $30.00.  You can tell it's handmade (most likely by Amish), and is about 6 feet tall when put up to it's highest setting.

I love the fact they put these rods at the very bottom for support.  All of my smaller ones (metal and wood) start to wobble side to side after months of use.

Great drying rack.
I have one that was given to me. I love using it. I don't think mine is as sturdy as yours...
But I've used it next to the wood stove in the winter. I think it's great.

This what I use to dry my homeade egg noodles on. I also have one in the basement for drying my sweaters. Yours is awesome!

Very nice. I have one of those really dinky ones that wobble! And I don't have a clothes dryer! Someday maybe hubby will make me one like this. And in the meantime our clothes often spend time on hangers on the door frames and edges of the bunk beds!

I had one of those once upon a time but not anywhere near as nice as yours. I'm currently hoping for an outdoor clothes line strung between the trees at the side of my yard out by the old stone wall that divides the formal garden space from the forest spaces!
Happy clothes drying!
Hugs,

P.S. How are you feeling? getting back to yourself I hope!

That is one awesome drying rack! Perfect for rainy days, and a host of other uses! I like the idea of using it for drying homemade noodles too. This was a true find!

Wow.. Nice deal! I used to have a cheaper one in wood, and you guessed it.. It wore out and fell apart.

Our Grandmother used one of these to dry her homemade noodles, and I've seen some people also use them to dry herbs.

Our sister still keeps one in her bathtub to dry used towels with before they're tossed in the hamper.

God bless.
