Drying rack...show me your favorite!!

I'm in the market for a drying rack...I use pockets and flats so it needs to be fairly good size. I also have a small amount of storage space so it needs to fold fairly flat.

Help me shop!!!!

Ikea has good ones. Ill see if I can find it. But I remember seeing a cool one that attachex to the wall and folds down when you use it and folds flat when you put it up.

Re: Drying rack...show me your favorite!!

I have a really nice Amish made one that is huge. As in, I out a whole load of mine and DH's laundry in there. If you go to Lehman's, they have the same basic thing, but they do have different sizes. They are a bit pricier than a lot of other racks, but they last a very long time.

We bought the $8 Ikea one about a month ago. It does the job, but is really flimsy. I suspect it will be too warped within a year to stand up. It falls over easily and then gets warped.

Re: Drying rack...show me your favorite!!

I have a couple of metal ones from Target. I've had them for years and they are pretty sturdy. Every now and then DH tightens the screws. They aren't real big but I could dry like 12 pocket diapers plus inserts on them no problem (using both.) The plus side to them not being very big is that I can stand one on top of my washer and one on top of my dryer, freeing up floor space.

This is the rack we use. I don't use the mesh for the top.
