Last night I found myself lighting the log burner, Wiltshire has been very wet and unseasonably cold - perfect drying rackweather!
I am missing the washing line this week, especially when my son returned from scouts after a triumphant night of climbing covered in mud & my daughter covered herself in celebratory ice-cream!
We have put together a new kit, saving you £10!Add the side rail and you save another £5 vs the cumulative value!
The *NEW* Mini Montyis not just a drying set, it is a compact, useful, half size drying set!
The Mini Monty Is Perfect for -
- Extending your full monty setif you have a 4 oven with warming plate to a whopper of a drying set! ( as long as your rail can accommodate the 40cm ladder - most will!)
- Suitable for compact 60cm Aga range cookers
- Great for drying/proving/airing whilst keeping one hot spot accessible (2, 3 or 4 oven)
- The ladder can stay in situ whilst you cook - you can still get in the ovens!
- The ladder has less of a 'footprint' than a standalone airer too!
Not just for laundry!- We have thought of 11 ways to use your Blake & Bull drying racks. Here are our 'Drying Rack Top Tips' -
- When drying washing on your rack, fold it first, saves on ironing (if you do it!)
- If you are off on a winter walk, lay your scarves, welly socks, gloves and hats out on the rack to warm through before you leave!
- Kiddy craft? Use our rack to dry paintings, papier mâché, découpage and much more!
- Dry citrus peel slowly on it, rested on greaseproof paper, to make a natural kindling, pine cones work too!
- Dry out kindling sticks, ready for a warming winter fire.
- Lay your washing-up on it, to air dry. Or bits from the dishwasher that haven't steam dried, lay a t-towel down first.
- The flat surface is great for drying bulkier items slowly, like pillows, duvets folded, cat & dog beds - we have even seen a horse blanket being done this way!
- Slow dry your glut of summer herbs for the winter months on parchment.
- Dry seeds from the garden and store for the next season - free flowers! On the top layer, not too hot.
- Try Propagating seeds in trays on your rack or pot shelf, if they require a heated propagator you could save money and energy this way!
- Dry your delicate woollens - after hand washing let them drip dry flat on our rack, over the bath (or kitchen sink if using a Half Size Drying Rack), then easily transfer the rack to the top of your range for the last drying stage.
