10 space-saving drying racks for small spaces

Share on Pinterest

Traditional machine dryers can sometimes shrink, stretch, or generally be harsh on certain fabrics. The drying rack, however, gently and safely dries fabric, helping to maintain the quality and integrity of clothes for longer. Even more, it requires zero of the energy used by a traditional dryer, which means lower overall costs when it comes to monthly energy bills. But if you don’t have a garden and your home is on the petite side, it can be a bit of a space-stealer, so I have curated some drying racks that work great in small dwellings.
