Indoor Drying Options

It’s easy to forget about Eco-friendly drying practices in the cold winter months. The last thing you want to do is trek out into the snow to gather your clothes from a frosty clothesline. If you would rather stay in the comfort (and heat) of your home, like most of us would, that’s fine because there are great options for indoor drying.

Greenway laundry racks come in different sizes and many models can be used both indoors and outdoors. The racks offer great drying space and fold up when not in use. The Greenway Laundry Lift is another space saving option that features adjustable stainless steel rods, child safety strings, and a unique stop and lock pulley system.

Whichever option you choose, indoor drying is a great way to continue your green laundry practices throughout the winter months.
