We dried our laundry exclusively on racks for nearly 2 years. When our washer died a few weeks ago, we bought a used pair from friends so we have an electric dryer again, but much to my children’s chagrin we seldom use it.
It costs a lot to use an electric dryer for a big family, so I have rules and a jar.
- Want to use the dryer just because you don’t feel like hanging a load of laundry on the rack? Get approval and put 50 cents in the jar.
- Ask first with a good reason – a sweater prone to lint, or a cotton article of clothing that has stretched – and it might be free.
- Use the dryer without permission? The fee doubles to $1.
When you use your drying rack as much as we do, it’s important to have one that fits your needs and stands up to daily use. A good design can be the difference between a money-saving piece of equipment and just another guilt-inducing piece of clutter.
I think the Homestead Drying Racks fit that description. These beautiful handcrafted hardwood drying racks, created by a homesteading family of 7, are made to last a lifetime.
Shipping and insurance is included in the price of all their products. I love having shipping included on big items like this: you don’t have to wonder and calculate how shipping will affect the total cost, because you know exactly what your cost will be.
