Wooden Clothes Drying Rack: Air Dry Your Clothes on This Foldable, Easy-to-Store, Hardwood Laundry Room Essential!

A Wooden Clothes Drying Rack is an Easy Way to Save Money, AND your Clothes!

What could be simpler than drying your clothes, especially on a wooden clothes drying rack? Everyone knows that air-drying your laundry is easier on your clothes (and the environment!) than an electric or gas dryer. So why not utilize a simple, environmentally friendly technology that really works? By using our sturdy-built wooden drying racks for even a portion of your laundry, you can lower your energy bill and make your clothes last longer.

I know what you are thinking, “Those wooden clothes drying racks are great, but they are so flimsy and cheaply made that they just break after a few months”. You know what? You are absolutely right! Most of the wood drying racks on the market are poorly constructed out of the cheapest materials available, and tend to break after just a few months.

That’s why we decided to make a wooden clothes drying rack, right here in Cottage Grove Wisconsin, that would not only do the job it was designed for, but hold up to the heavy wet jeans, towels, comforters, and jackets that tend to over-tax those cheap racks. Our sturdy-built North American hardwood drying racks give you plenty of drying space, and fully collapse for easy storage. The frames are constructed with ¾” x 1 ¼” thick unfinished hardwood, along with ¾” round dowels to hang your heaviest laundry items. The dowels are also attached to the frame using screws, not staples, giving you the strongest possible construction.

Air drying your clothes using a  wooden clothes drying rack is an easy way to save money by utilizing the free energy of the sun. You all ready know that using one of these racks will work, and that you should be air drying your favorite clothes to make them last longer. So what are you waiting for?

Frequently Asked Questions

Do your drying racks come fully assembled?

Our Wooden Clothes Drying Racks come fully assembled and ready to use out of the box. No assembly required! If you look at our racks closely, you will notice that we use screws to fasten the  dowels to the outside frame parts. We use screws instead of staples in order to give you the strongest possible construction that will last for years and years.

You will also notice that we use 3/4″ thick dowels for our drying racks. Many manufactures use much thinner dowels (down to 3/8″ thick) that easily break under the weight of heavy wet jeans or towels. We use a variety of North American hardwoods in the construction of our drying racks including: Maple, Birch, Poplar, and Sycamore. Simply put, our drying racks are built to last.

How many pair of jeans can be hung on your Large Wooden Clothes Drying Rack?

The number of pairs of jeans that can fit on one of our Large racks will, of course, depend on the size of the garment. If you are talking about kids jeans, we have been told by customers that they can fit up to 12 pair. As for adult sizes, you can expect to fit 8-10 pair easily.

We encourage our customers to tell us how much they are able to fit on one of our racks. We are often told that an entire load of laundry will easily fit onto one of our Large Wooden Clothes Drying Racks. In fact, send us a picture of your fully loaded drying rack, and we will post it on our website.

 Do your drying racks come with a finish?

Our Wooden Clothes Drying Racks are made of unfinished hardwood because any type of coating has the potential, over time, of wearing off onto your clothes. It is possible that the grain may raise due to contact with water. This is normal. If you notice that a spot on the surface seems a little too rough after the rack is dried out, you can simply sand it smooth with 180 grit sandpaper.

Although we have found that it is not necessary, if you would like to put a finish on your rack, we would recommend applying at least two coats of  semi-gloss polyurethane. Over time, this finish may begin to peel or flake off (especially if you regularly hang soaking wet towels or clothes on the rack). If this happens, sand the areas that the finish has worn off, and reapply.

Do I have to do anything to maintain my drying rack?

The best thing you can do to maintain your drying rack is to allow it to fully dry between uses. If wood does not get the chance to air dry out,  mold or mildew may develop. By letting the rack  dry out, you can avoid such problems.

We recommend that you store your drying rack indoors, and make sure that you do not leave it outside in the rain. If allowed to sit out in the rain too long, the wood will “swell up” and make it very difficult to collapse. In addition, you may find that once your rack dries out after being left out in the rain, it may become “loose” or “wobbly”.  Avoid these problems by simple storing your Wooden Clothes Drying Rack inside.
