We've had this airer for four years now, and have found it an absolute godsend! We have no need for a tumble drier (nor do we have the room for one) so we save money easy! If we have more than normal a load, I set our clothes horse around the drier, and hang the quicker-drying items on it, works a treat. We use reusable nappies, and it dries the majority overnight, no more running low! Also, I've found it very sturdy, especially as it's survived many moves and kiddies using it as a pull up stand when learning to stand/walk!! I cannot fault our airer, it is has become invaluable to our family.
