Great New Drying Rack
I had the chance to visit the Hazelton, Iowa Amish community and purchase my drying rack!
My swing method works great, but will be difficult to maintain in rainy or cold weather.
I chose a rack slightly smaller than the one my mom uses because my laundry room is actually a laundry closet. My drying rack will have to travel around the house to wherever my company is not.
This is by far the best, high quality drying rack I have ever used. It easily holds an entire load of laundry without collapsing.
The racks are available in several sizes (including a very cute child-sized rack) from:
Superior Woodcrafts LLC
I met my mom in Oelwein which is a good halfway point for us. She purchased another large drying rack. Dad is building wire shelves for the rack so they can dry onions and other garden produce.
Speaking of produce, Mom brought me a whole cooler of it! Including 2 1/2 dozen eggs! I will have to stock my freezer because I don’t think I will be able to handle all of it in a week.
Remember the mitten tree from first grade? I found one of those too>
It is plastic but seems durable. It cost only $2.50 and is very convenient for underwear, socks, and dishclothes.
Unfortunately, Spencer and I have been working hard to reduce our laundry. I am all caught up! I will have to wait until next week to enjoy my new racks more.
