This time of year is commonly referred to as “the most wonderful time of the year”.  Not so for many of the clothing articles that we have to work into our daily wardrobe.  Colder weather means lots of sweaters and bundling up with soft, fuzzy items that haven’t seen the light of day for months.  Many of us have a favorite piece, either because it’s been given to us by someone special or it holds special meaning in other ways, and it’s important to take care of these “delicates”.  Whether these items are super expensive or more reasonably priced does not affect their personal value to the individual.

Using a mechanical dryer can do damage to our most treasured items, and even those not-so-treasured (those we may not care about as much)…the excessive heat can dry out elastic, break down fibers and shrink items that we would like to use for years to come.  Did you know that the lint that collects and needs to be removed from the dryer filter is composed of broken down fibers from your clothes?!  A simple way to combat this and preserve the life of your clothing is by using a drying rack to dry delicates and those special sweaters, be they cashmere or not.

The Hills Trident 3 Clothes Rack has 3 tiers to save floor space, combining height and lots of drying area with a small footprint.  These are perfect not only for apartments, but for anyone, anywhere who’d like to be gentle to those items that can’t go into the dryer (hint, hint:  in the laundry room, the bathroom, anywhere!).

Click here for a video about how best to wash a cashmere sweater at home.  Though a mesh drying rack is recommended in this video, a rack like this needs counter space to dry…a Hills drying rack can accommodate not only this sweater but other items as well, without eating up valuable counter space.  One level of the 3 Tier can be dedicated to a single sweater and the remaining levels used to dry other items. Drape your clothes over the “lines” or use pegs to hang and decrease drying time, whichever you prefer.  (It is preferable to dry sweaters flat to decrease on stretching the fabric.)  Our drying racks also have specially designed lines, thin enough to accommodate pegs to hang the wash, but durable enough to handle even the wettest pair of jeans.

We are excited to offer a line drying solution to another area of your home – the pool!

Goodbye wet towels hanging on the chairs, fences, piled on the ground or draped over the picnic table . . . your pool area will look great and your towels will dry more effectively. Our Hills® Supa Fold 120 Folding Frame Clothesline (#FD45408) offers the perfect solution. When not in use the Supa Fold 120 folds down flat to the wall so it won’t get in the way when not in use. The width can be customized to accommodate whatever space limitation you have. Also works great for vacation homes at the lake or beach. Attach one in the garage or basement so wet towels won’t be left  hanging all over your house.

Don’t have a wall to attach a Supa Fold 120 folding frame ? No problem, our optional Supa Fold Adjustable Post Kit (#FD45420) mounts in the ground so you can install the Supa Fold120 in the location that best suits your needs. It is also adjustable to the height that is convenient to you. The optional Supa Fold Ground Mount Socket Pack (#FD45430)  allows the Supafold 120 to be removed from the ground and stored when not in use. That is what we love about our Hills® Clotheslines . . . they do not have to be permanently installed in your yard leaving you the flexibility to regain your yard space
