I've just found the most amazing space-saving outdoor washing line thingy

This could win an award for dullest thread of the year BUT I had to come on and rave. We haven't got room for a proper rotary airer and haven't got walls/fence panels to hang a decent washing line on. I've been dragging the indoor airer outside all the time, which is an arse - but I've just bought this for £15 in Argos, it's a foldable, portable outdoor rotary airer.

Small things in life obviously please me, but this is amazing. A full washing machine and it's barely filled half the airer! And when the washing is dry it's just going to fold into a little bag that can go in the cupboard.

I'm never excited about laundry. I am today grin

Looks great and half price!

I've just reserved one at Argos. Thanks for the tip.

Ooooooh I'm moving from a flat to a house soon this will be just perfect!!!

Thank for this op. ive been looking at these types of airers and worried they would blow over but this one looks quite sturdy.

Love the drying net for socks that's awesome!

Thurlow Sat 31-May-14 16:49:41

I know, I just flung all the underwear on the net without any sorting, it was bliss for a laundry slattern. It feels really sturdy, and even has pegs for if you want to fix it more firmly into grass. I'm amazed at the price it's at at the moment. I could sell this on QVC, I'm that impressed with it!

Ok i'm sold. Ordering one too.

Thurlow Sat 31-May-14 16:57:56

I need commission wink

YoureBeingASillyBilly Sat 31-May-14 18:53:00

Got it! grin decided to just go and get one while it was in my head. Really pleased with it. Very easy to put up an down and store away. Havent used it to dry a load of washing yet but looks like it will be a good job. Thanks again OP.

Glad you like it!

chocolatespiders Sat 31-May-14 21:46:14

is it compact enough to use indoors in winter. the clothes look like they will hang better then on an airer!

LumpySpacedPrincess Sat 31-May-14 21:49:38

Is it sad to be excited about picking this up tomorrow?

LumpySpacedPrincess Sat 31-May-14 21:51:37

I've also got the heated one from Lakeland.

Luffs a drying thing-a-ma-jig.

Philoslothy Sat 31-May-14 21:54:15

Does it pack away neatly? Could I take it camping?

YoureBeingASillyBilly Sat 31-May-14 22:04:25

It packs away into a carry case and would be great for taking camping IMO.

It measures 120cmX120cm and having a tiny house I have no space to use it inside but i have a tower airer for inside. If you have a bigger house you may be able to use it inside.

It's great but you are fooling yourself if you think you will ever be arsed to put it in it's bag each time! grin

Thurlow Sat 31-May-14 22:06:25

It does pack away but it's nearly 2 feet long - would work if you had a car? As for indoors you definitely could but its a good 3ft wide when up, you'd need a lot of space. It almost as big as a rotary airer when up.

And it's not sad - come on, I was excited enough to start a post about it!

YoureBeingASillyBilly Sat 31-May-14 22:10:52

It's great but you are fooling yourself if you think you will ever be arsed to put it in it's bag each time!

I just took the bag off to measure it and couldnt even be arsed to put it back on! grin

I just got a similar one from dunelm (more upright but no net).

It literally takes a few seconds to fold it down - love it.

Wow, just wow. grin

That my friend is a thing of Beauty.

Thurlow Sun 01-Jun-14 15:32:37

Did you get it?

LumpySpacedPrincess Sun 01-Jun-14 15:54:34

I'm looking at it, picked it up this morning.

It would have been worth the original price.

BumWad Sun 01-Jun-14 18:46:24

Out of stock everywhere here!!!

Thurlow Sun 01-Jun-14 19:10:05

Because it is. Just. That. Good grin
