My house at university doesn't have a garden and no tumble dryer, making it really hard to dry my clothes in a decent amount of time. We do have a large private parking area though at the back of the house so thought it would be a good idea to look for some form of fold away washing line to use in the warmer months outside. Amazon, as usual, showed me the perfect product.
Delivered, the washing lines comes in a nice nylon bag so that it can be stored easily without taking up much space which is exactly what I wanted. I didn't want to be using it all of the time and, because it isn't nailed down, was worried about it being stolen. When folded, the washing line measures 124cm x 10cm x 10cm and when erected, it measures approximately 132cm x 96cm x 96cm. I have rubbish sense of sizes though so would not be able to picture the size in my head at all.
The frame is coloured in 'gun metal' and is also made out of a lightweight metal, making it easy to carry around and move about. The washing line stands on a four legs, spread into a square with an upside down pyramid making up the actual washing lines. Once constructed, there are 4 lines in different lines on each side of the pyramid, giving you plenty of space to hang your clothes.
The product comes with an A4 sheet of paper with the instructions which were extremely easy to follow. Some of the lines were a little bit tangled in the bag but it took no effort at all to straighten them out which was a massive relief. I did not want to be sat there on the floor for hours untangling wires. Assembly was really easy and hardly took any time at all which was pleasing as I was expecting it to be quite complicated for some reason.
The only real downfall with this product is that it won't stand up in heavy winds unless weighted down with something but in these cases, I just don't use it and dry things in my room instead. I have used this as an indoor air-er as well as it seems silly to buy another one just for inside!
