No Back Yard? Here Are Some Perfect Solutions

The concept of line drying gives a mental picture of clothes waving outside on a sunny day.  If you don’t have a backyard, whether you live in an apartment, a small condo, or even a house with an HOA rule against outside clothes lines, you may be thinking you have no options for line drying your clothes.  The good news is, there are many options for drying your clothes.  No matter your situation, we’ve got some great solutions.  Here are 5 great options to suit your needs.

  1. Drying racks provide a great alternative, as they fold away when they’re not in use, providing an open area for everyday activities.  While there are some easy to use free standing racks, if you’re able to put a couple of holes in your wall, the QuikCloset Fold Away Clothes Dryer allows you to fold the unit up against the wall, making it super simple to place it out of the way.  It is also weather resistant, so it’s perfect for a balcony or a porch if you prefer drying your clothes outside.

  3. Retractable clothes lines allow you to place your line virutally anywhere, as they are simply a very small wall mounted unit.  To use, you simply pull the strings and hang somewhere on the other side of the room.  You can purchase one line, like they have in some hotels for hanging bathing suits or wet towels over your tubs; or you can purchase units with up to five lines which allow you to dry an entire load.

  5. Perhaps you like the umbrella style of drying rack, but you don’t have the soil to stick it in, or the space.  You can have the same features of the umbrella style in a wall mounted unit with the Brabantia Wallfix Rotary Clothes Dryer.
