Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Summer in New England is hot and humid, and towels seem permanently damp, always on the verge of mildew. This year, I became obsessed with tracking down a vintage-style towel drying rack that would encourage my teenagers to hang their beach towels outside the back door. I embarked on an internet search and was delighted to discover the Best Drying Rack , reminiscent of drying racks of yore (indeed, the design is based on a drying rack that owner Greg Baka found in an antique store). The arrival of the Best Drying Rack has reaffirmed what I have always known: "When things are simple and easy to use, people (teens included) actually use them." Made in the US of maple hardwood dowels and corrosion-resistant steel, the Best Drying Rack features stable tripod construction; $39.99 at Best Drying Rack . N.B. Best Drying Rack is committed to small-scale US manufacturing; in fact, you can join them on their Clothespin Challenge as they search for clothespins made in America to sell on their site.
