drying rack recommendations?

Posted by shkish (My Page) on

I am in desperate need of a good quality drying rack. I just broke my Target find - cheap plastic fastener broke while unfolding it just now... and that one was supposed to be my better replacement for the el-cheap-o (leaning) wooden collapsable rack I've had for years.

Please recommend a drying rack/system that will last! Thanks!

DO NOT buy the wood ones from Vermont Country Store. They will snag your clothing, regardless of the description on their site/catalog. Ask me how I know.... They sent replacements, with dowels made with equally rough wood. BTW, the rack(s) I received from VCS were made by Robbins Home Goods, which is also found on

They also will not allow negative reviews on their web site. Again, ask me how I know . . .

Good luck.

RE: drying rack recommendations?

I have a sturdy one that I bought from Bed Bath & Beyond. It's metal (shiny chrome, not covered in plastic) and I've used it for several years now with no rusting, snagging or other issues. I don't remember the brand, sorry.

RE: drying rack recommendations?

I have one like this made by Polder. I've had it for several years with no issues. It doesn't take up a lot of floor space but holds a fair amount. You can also get a three tier that would hold even more.

My friend has this one and loves it. It does take up more floor space though.

Here is a link that might be useful: 2 Tier Drying Rack
