I'm going to post and run to bed, but would be grateful for any recommendations of where to buy a decent sturdy ceiling clothes airer. I've seen Sheila Maids mentioned, but this and this seem the same but cheaper.
I'd rather buy something decent from a reliable company, so would appreciate any recommendations.
i have the clothesmaid six, it's really great. the only complaint i would have is that the rope it comes with is fancy shmantzy natural and would look nice in a country kitchen type of place but was never going to work in our house. ykwim? so get the rope changed if that's a consideration, cos you can have my revolting brown one if you change your mind.
it hides up in the rafters in the hallway, you can't see it... [cunning] it's only a small space, though, a metre and a half or so, hence the six. it takes a full load, which is all you need, so four will be fine if you have more length.
