Dutch Airer: A Beautiful, Space Saving Alternative to Air Drying

Dutch Airer: A Beautiful, Space Saving Alternative to Air Drying

There are lots of reasons to hang your clothes as opposed to drying them in the dryer. Your clothes last longer, it saves energy, reduces pollution, and adds a bit of exercise to your day. Knowing that nearly 80% of the environmental impact of a T-shirt occurs post-purchase, it turns out that being a responsible consumer means more than purchasing a T-shirt made with organically grown, locally sourced cotton.

What's held me back with all of this, is that my apartment is fairly small, and I've been trying to work with a fold up rack. The fold up rack was great for a few things, but took up a lot of floor space, and was a more temporary fixture that didn't get as much use as it should have. It wasn't until I came across a Dutch Airer that I realized that this would be a much more permanent fixture in my home.
