An indoor drying rack is one of the most useful laundry tools. Air drying clothes will make them last longer, prevent stretching and some shrinkage. Drying racks are perfect for delicate clothes or heavy rugs that should not go in the dryer.
An indoor rack is also handy to use outdoors if your neighborhood has banned full-sized outdoor clotheslines. They take up a small footprint and can easily be moved in and out.

X-frame Clothes Drying Rack
One of the oldest styles, X-frame drying racks are sturdy and able to hold a number of garments. They are lightweight and collapsible. When collapsed, the rack can be easily stored behind a door, in a closet or even under the bed. These are a good choice for air-drying heavier clothes or throw rugs. While most are made from wood, sizes and finishes vary.

Sweater Drying Rack
Hand washed sweaters must be dried flat to retain their shape (other clothes can benefit as well). A sweater drying rack is wonderful for keeping your sweater looking its best. Made of lightweight plastic and mesh fabric, air flows freely around the sweater and speeds drying. The drying racks can be used over the bathtub, in a shower or on top of the washer so that dripping water will not damage floors or tabletops.
Many sweater drying racks have two or three drying surfaces so that you can have a marathon sweater wash and save time.

Retractable Wall Mount Drying Rack
A retractable drying rack is perfect for small spaces where a permanent rack is not appropriate. While not ideal for heavy items that need to dry, it is very good for lightweight garments like lingerie. It should be installed where dripping water will not harm any surfaces.Continue to 5 of 8 below.
