I have this which would have been great had I checked the walls I attatched it to were solid walls hmm Am now too scared to use it for fear of tearing down the fake wall. Have you not got a garden? That is our problem, and I hate that a corner of the living room is constantly filled with huge airers

I have that too, littlelamb. It is great if you don't mind having washing permanently over your bath (which I don't). I've got a couple of radiator driers too, this kind of thing, though I'm sure you can get cheaper.

Argos has loads of airers, I've just been perusing them from a link on the washing line thread. I'm considering splashing out £9.99 on a new one grin

I use my old cot rails as clothes driers. They look very stylish. People have even asked where I got them from.

I don't, I just lean them against the wall, Usually in the bathroom, or in the bath.

I've been looking a new airer as fed up moving mine out my way constantly... On my way to Ikea tomorrow to get this pully Thought I'd share in case you hadn't found anything.

you can get LOADS on one of these especially if you hang tops etc on hangers from the side rail.

I have a heated airer which speeds things up a bit, and is good for drying things flat across all the bars if you need it to dry in a hurry. It folds flat. It's supposed to cost the same as a lightbulb to run.

I have this Minky one which fits in our bath if necessary (our bath is 80cm wide though, many are only 70cm, mind you you could probably squeeeeze it in just at the top)

Ours came from Aldi at about £12.99 which was a great price compared with Tesco. It's v good though smile

krissy I bought a drier last year before the arrival of baby no.3. its been a godsend but is v.expensive to run. v.vexpensive!

this is a modern take on pulley thingy

Ditto the Minky one. It's excellent with loads of drying space and pull out things for hangers. And it's very sturdy and easy to put up and down.
