Washing line and Wall Mounted Clothes Drying Rack
With the modern clothes drying gadgets and appliances available today it looks as if a wall mounted clothes drying rack is as obsolete as public payphones. Yet I’ve seen around my neighborhood this week no less than 5 different indoor and outdoor drying racks for laundry that were mounted on the wall. I’ve asked my neighbors why they don’t use their clothes dryers, and some told me that it costs too much electricity and a few even told me that air drying is better for the environment – and for the clothes too!
I’ve started investigating the different types of dryers, and it seems my neighbors were right. First of all buying a wall mount clothes drying rack is indeed much cheaper compared to getting a clothes dryer, not only in the price of the actual appliance but in the electricity that it consumes as well, not to mention the cost of maintenance. I also like retractable washing line for drying clothes. There are many benefits of drying clothes outside instead of dryer. One of the most important benefit is your clothes life becomes longer and you don’t have to waste money in buying an expensive dryer and paying bills for using it. You can find many good washing line in UK at a reasonable price.
In addition, there is something to the fresh smell of clothes that were dried in the air, whether indoor or outdoors. It just smells differently indeed. And let’s face it, with the many tiny apartments of today that are built for ants instead of people, space is at a cost and in most cases there is simply no place anywhere to add a separate clothes dryer. A wall mounted retractable dryer rack is a life saver in this case!

Made of unfinished white pine, it can easily match the decor and ambient of the place you decide to mount it at. When it is closed, the dimensions are:12.25″h x 27″w x 6″d. However opened it offers no less than 18 feet of pure drying space. The drying rack is sturdy and it will last for quite some time. Perfect not only for drying, but also for storing and displaying things around the house.

Here is another great example of a wall mount drying rack for your clothes. This is made of plastic coated steel bars that make this rack extremely durable. The plastic coating keep it also from snagging at clothes.

It is 31.5″ wide with 8 adjustable steel lines and it’s easily retractable when not in use, so it saves space as well. Some reviewers mentioned that you might need a better set of anchors for mounting, but once installed, it is pretty stable and is able to hold heavy clothes as well.
Stackable washer dryer
But if you don’t want to buy a washing line or dryer rack, then go for stackable washer dryer. They are made of two separate appliances, one on top of the other to save space. This machine features many washing and drying settings and can accommodate the same amount of clothes as the regular machines. If one of the parts or appliance needs to be replaced, you don’t have to replace the other one.The washer is usually at the bottom and may be top- or front-loading. The dryer is not nearly as high as a stackable unit, making it easy to reach.
These dryers are very convenient when space is an issue,the dryer is of superior quality. Whirlpool duet is very popular and among the the best washer dryer in the market, It features a front loading washer and separate duet dryer which goes on top, the height becomes over six feet tall . It is always good idea to have a moisture sensor in the dryer as it detects the moisture content in the clothes and automatically switches of, this will help reduce the wear and tear of your clothes.
There are also combos which are good for families with limited space for their washing and drying. It is also recommended to measure the exact space available before buying a washer dryer unit , including clearance for electric cords and the dryer’s exhaust duct, doorways, and potential obstructions leading to the location. The washer essentially has to be a front loader so that the dryer can be stacked on top.
