It's amazing how the benchmark for certain products is set so low.
Take the drying rack. When have you ever been excited to use your drying rack? They are generally poorly made, and functionality doesn't appear to have been improved since their inception.
This drying rack would be a lovely addition to any washing regime. Just two frames, some dowels, hinges and a metal clasp at the top.... an easy weekend project that will make drying a pleasure....
(ok, so that might be a bit of an oversell .... but when electricity prices are so high that people start hanging their clothes from every possible fixture... you'll look very smart with your super-styling rack)
