Modern Extendable Ceiling Airer 5 "Works well" Mrs Gaunt 09 November 2017 I remember my parents having a ceiling dryer, in fact most families had one in the 1960s. As we were a bit short of floor space we said we would try one. As for putting it up a friend soon had it in place ready for use. It dries my clothes overnight, and there is plenty of room, I use it mostly with clothes hangers and I've noticed not much ironing when they are dry. I would recommend it.
