Traditional Wooden Ceiling Pulley Indoor Clothes Airer 7m 5 "Couldn't live without it" Anne 28 August 2012 I grew up with a giant Victorian version of this, and couldn't wait to have one in my own home. Tumble driers shrink things! - they are wonderful for towels but expensive to run and no good for all sorts of clothing items. Draping on radiators looks dreadful, can rust the metal edges of radiators and often results in slightly smelly clothes. Airers fall over. But these are brilliant. They will hold a full wash (from a large drum washing machine) and if you spend a little extra time and hang your clothes neatly, will reduce ironing considerably. Fantastic for sheets and duvets - love it!
