Clothe’s Drying Rack for Hanging Laundry, Silver and Blue -Four Stars
At first glance, this looks like the perfect drying rack for someone who has a large number of shirts and blouses that need to be placed on hangers before drying. It is tall, it is slim and comes in two different sizes, a one-tier (29.95) and a two-tier (39.97). Because it stands vertically, it does not take any more space than a coat rack. The downside and the real reason for the ten are that while it is collapsible, it has parts that must be removed and added on again when back in use. If you happen to have a large laundry room and then, this is the product for you, as it could just stand there and look pretty all day. However, for smaller laundry rooms and living quarters, perhaps something without parts.
9. Ohuhu Stainless Steel Gullwings Clothes Drying Rack
Actually, this clothing rack is rather interesting. It has plastic hinges and is fully collapsible, it could fit between the washer and dryer, behind a door, or beneath a bed. It even has little clips on it for socks. So if you are like me, and have created an octopus due to all the strangely unmated socks you’ve generated over the years, this feature could be true… well, sock saver. The only downside is it does not appear to come fully assembled, of all the reviews on Amazon.com, the lowest marks, some as low as one star, were due to missing or damaged parts. For that reason, priced at 34.19, I would have to give this rack a pass.
8. Household Essentials Collapsible Expandable Metal Clothes Drying Rack
This Rack is similar in style to several other clothes drying racks that made our list, however, I had to pay attention to the ratings. Most of the ratings came in at five stars, but of the low, they were really low, and most after the consumers had the product for six months or more and said it was falling apart. The high ratings were mostly from consumers who had recently purchased it and were gratified for no more shrinking sweaters. One consumer rated it with four of five stars indicating that the rack was too short for hanging shirts on a hanger. So for 22.99, I’m going to rack this one up as a no.
7. Polder Wall-Mount 24-Inch Accordion Clothes Dryer
This product had me at accordion. No really, it is collapsible and wall-mounted, so it is perfect for tight spaces, and could easily hang in a smaller laundry room or even a bathroom for drying towels and clothes. The great thing about this nifty little drying rack is because of how it is made, you can lay clothes flat, although not more than one or two pieces, or hang clothes on a hanger. Be advised, though, it is not that sturdy, so if you need it for those unmentionables or smaller items, then it is awesome, but for larger, heavier items, this item for consumption is not advisable.

6. DecoBros Supreme Commercial Grade Double Rail Garment Rolling Rack
This product is truly amazing, and I would have no problem giving it a higher rating, but, only because it is so retro-amazingly stylish. If I had this product, it would be in my bedroom with some of my nicest dresses hanging on it for display. That is the thing, there are no racks per se for laying garments flat, only for hanging. While it will dry several hanging items at once, and it does come in both one (59.87) and two (79.87) rack styles, if a drying rack is what you want, this one is not it.
5. Ikea Stainless Steel Wall Mounted Laundry Drying Rack
Here we have another wall mounted product. It is stylish, compact, as it does collapse against the wall, it is versatile in that it can also serve as plant or bookshelf. It is not for a large laundry day, but for drying smaller and lighter items. This product is from IKEA, and who doesn’t like IKEA? However, there is a disclaimer that the product does not come with hardware to affix it to the wall, and a subtle warning about wall types and hardware. So if you are like me and you get nosebleeds when you go into a hardware store, skip it. (39.99)
4. Honey-Can-Do DRY-01610-Heavy Duty Gullwing Drying Rack, White 4.5 stars
I like the name of this little drying rack, however, it really does have some rather unique and useful features. This versatile little rack has six position wings that allow for hanging clothes, laying clothes, or even drying sneakers. It also has a drying net for those items that cannot be hung and might get rack prints. It is fully collapsible for storing between the washer and dryer, behind the door, or beneath a bed. Additionally, you might want to check out the other Honey Do products mentioned along with this product. (31.20)
e and you get nosebleeds when you go into a hardware store, skip it. (39.99)
3. Amazon-Basics Foldable Drying Rack
I am a bit partial to this foldable drying rack because it is actually the one I have at home. It does everything the makers promise and it folds right up and minds its own business when all is done and dried. The only reason I did not give this rack the number one spot, is because I had no idea there were so many different types of drying racks available. At a very affordable 16.66, this is the very good choice for anyone who has loads of lingerie, sweaters, and other delicates that all just happen to be washed on that same once in a blue moon. I like it because of all the inner racks; it fits so many items!
2. Large Wooden Clothes Drying Rack by Benson Wood Products
Before you click on the above link. Let me warn you, this product is pricey at 115.00. However, it is solid wood, it is foldable, and it stands at 5’, with over 41’ of hanging space. Each rack is distanced to allow better airflow, which means quicker drying time. While this product is a bit, okay a lot, more costly than the other products reviewed, it is worth a look and depending upon your particular needs, perhaps a second look. Finally, and after much soul-searching…the clothes drying rack that steal the show is.
1. Ohuhu 43″ Foldable Stainless Steel Drying Rack
You may note this drying rack bears an uncanny resemblance to our number 9 spot. It has all the same features, but the makers must have listened to the cries of the consumers and this rack made from stainless steel for heavy duty drying. Ohuhu even replaced the flimsy plastic joints with stainless steel, so no worries about breaking here. With all the different drying stations on this rack, it is worth the modest 69.99 asked. I might just have to break up with Number 3 up there because I think I am in love.
Drying racks are a need of every house. You cannot expect a house to be complete without a drying rack because when you’re done with your laundry, you need some place to dry your clothes. You could consider a clothesline, but that’ll take a lot of space for no necessary reason whatsoever.
Drying rack ensures the least space is covered as far the drying of the clothes is concerned. These drying racks are not just space saving, but they’re also strong and give a lot of coverage for the clothes. Drying racks are essential because without them at home, it is rather mad to spread your clothes all around the house to have them dried or use a long clothesline to get all the clothes dry.
