==Argos Value 3 Tier Indoor Airer==
When we were living in a flat I found drying clothes to be one of those things that you either paid heavily for (by putting items in the tumble dryer) or ended up having the entire place looking like a launderette. Anyhow there definitely wasn't enough surface on the radiators to lay out a load of washing and therefore we needed to get a clothes airer.
This Argos value 3 tier indoor airer has been with us since the first weeks of being in the flat over 5 years ago and now we have moved into a house it is still used a good deal. The airer was a snip at £9.99 p and we have certainly already got our monies worth out of it. It actually looks a little different to the one that Dooyoo have pictured as the picture looks like the more expensive Minky airer rather than the Argos one.
The airer is basically a three tier white plastic clothes dryer which acts of a kind of indoor washing line. The lines of plastic are held together by small plastic blue ends which can be popped off and I did think that when we first got the airer that we would have trouble with these popping out on their own accord and us having to keep fixing the airer back together but surprisingly this hasn't been the case at all and the airer itself has remained in one piece and very sturdy indeed.
The size of the airer is not massive and can realistically can only take a small load. In the winter though this is fine because I have airers to go over my radiators too which take a good deal and this means that one load of washing can be spread between this airer and all of the radiators too. I find that a load of washing doesn't take too long to dry in the house when the radiators are on. However with this wet summer we have had I have found it more difficult to dry clothes seeing as how the heating is not on but it is wet outside. I have on occasion put clothes onto this airer and then put it outside for as long as possible before the rain comes and this seems to work well at drying the clothes quicker. Of course if there is any gust of wind the airer is liable to fall over and more often than not I push the legs of the airer into the grass which gives it a little bit of support in the wind.
Overloading the airer can be the biggest mistake as clothes do need a lot of room inbetween other wet items in order to dry quicker and to fully dry too. Overloading the airer will in the long run take twice as long to dry the clothes and it really is a much better idea to leave the airer with less items on than more!
All in all though as airers go I can't really find fault with this one. For the three of us it has been doing really well when needed but I can't say that with the new arrival on the way it will be big enough to hold all our clothes and I have actually been threatening for some time to get a bigger one which is a little more sturdy but really this one does a good as job as any and even if I did buy another one I may well buy another one of these just so that I have more space because for the price I can't say anything negative about it especially as it has lasted over 5 years and is still doing the job that is required from it and doing it well!
I think nothing but a top score of 5 out of 5 stars and an exceptionally high recommendation is well deserving in this product.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
Summary: a great indoor airer
