Got a lot of blackberries? Then check out this recipe for Blackberry Mojito Fruit Leather.

I'm not a huge fan of fruit leathers, but this turned out super good! And, really, you can't go wrong with blackberries, mint and rum.

Tripod clothes drying rack giveaway!

In anticipation of October's Hang 'Em Dry Challenge, where you can pledge to line dry all of your laundry for the month to save money on utilities as well as reduce your carbon footprint, I have another clothes drying rack to give away! So, if you missed out on the last one, now's your chance to win a rack - this one has a little more utility to it!

If you are having problems with the accordion style drying racks that tend to get wobbly over time, but like the convenience of a rack that you can move inside when the weather starts looking suspicious, then you'll like this tripod style wooden clothes drying rack. It has 24 feet of clothes hanging capacity and, the best part is, it is adjustable to fit any space, even in the corner.

The Best Drying Rack is a U.S. made rack from a small-scale manufacturer and is constructed of maple hardwood and corrosion resistant steel construction (no plastic parts). It sets up quickly and folds up for storage to an 8" round and 27" tall closed rack.

What's also cool is that the top rotates for loading so you don't have to scoot around it to hang your clothes. It's also sturdy enough to dry six pairs of jeans or twelve bath towels at once.

Giveaway!
If you are interested in entering the randomly drawn giveaway (U.S. residents only), please add your name to the comments of this post and check out the challenge to kick-start saving money and reducing your carbon emissions by a thousand pounds of carbon a year or more!

You have until midnight PST Wednesday, September 29th to enter. Good luck!

Nonie said...

I'd love to win that!

Village Green said...

Way cool -- I could use it!

LindaLea said...

I love this design! Sadly, my 6yr old would probably confiscate it, but then at least I could use my accordian-style dryer without having to remove her dolls' clothes prior to hanging each load!

Sustainable Eats said...

I'd love one! Thanks for the great giveaways - line drying is one of my goals for this winter. I just need to clean out the garage first...

L said...

I love this design! I would live to win but even without I'm stepping up to the challenge!!

Tristin Mock, ND said...

Another great design!

cb said...

This would be great for drying clothes in the winter inside near the woodstove !

sustainableme said...

Oh, that looks awesome! I like that it doesn't have any plastic parts, too. I definitely wouldn't mind winning that! :-)

Jenn said...

I would love to try this out!

Paula said...

I've been on the lookout for a new drying rack. I can only find the accordions in the store and I've had trouble with those. I've never seen this style before, it looks interesteing.

steph said...

Count me in!

heathermhs said...

I'd love to try one of these. What a cool design!

Katy @ The Non-Consumer Advocate said...

I would be interested in trying out this clothes rack.

If at first you don't succeed- dry, dry again!

Goni said...

Really hope i win!!

esp said...

This looks wonderful! I hang most everything on hangers in the basement from our exposed water pipes, but bath towels are to big for that. This would be perfect!

owlfan said...

I haven't seen this type before and I would love to try it out. I have to chase the sun around my deck, so moveable is definitely the way to go.

I like the looks of this one! Thanks Crunchy! Hugh. Can't get the form to work for me. Trying anon. Jessica. Jessjgh1 At Gmail Dotcom

I have been wanting a drying rack from this company for awhile and would love to win one! Thank you for the opportunity.

contessa20 said...

Oooh I would love to win that!

Kerryanne Cummins said...

What a great design! It looks low enough for my two boys to be able to reach it to hang their cloths! Thank you for the "Earth Friendly" giveaway!

Tara said...

Cool rack! I could give it a whirl.

caron said...

This would be great for the freezing cold days and nights coming up. This is a great challenge! Thanks!

JenHarper said...

Put my name in the hat, please. That looks like something I'd love to use.

Joanna said...

When I start using cloth diapers in a few months, another drying rack will be very handy!

historicstitcher said...

I could definitely use that! My wooden one is almost all used up and I need the drying space!

Cheryl Ann said...

Oh, I'd love one of those, too! I set up a clothes line out in my back yard for my sheets and towels and use it now. I missed having a clothes line. My mom and grandmother both used one and I missed the smell of clean, fresh sheets!

Mara said...

Yes please. Permanent clothes lines are banned on our neighborhood (boo), so we have to use racks.

Anna in Atlanta said...

I could give indoor drying a try with a rack like that. Put my name in the hat, please.

Leevelyn said...

I've not seen a rack like that before...it certainly looks neat!

Anonymous said...

Way cool being able to hang so many jeans or towels at one time. I have to be mix the towels with other clothes because the places to hang bath towels on my collection of racks is limited. I did pick up (at Costco) a metal rack that looks like the wings of an old fashioned plane that solved the pant & dress drying issues.

Michelle said...

I would love to win that!

Sandy said...

I'm interested! I miss line drying my clothes.

We are planning to go full time RVing soon, so this would be PERFECT! Compact and simple. I would love to win this one. Thanks for the opportunity!

Looks handy! I've got just the spot for it.

Very cool! Thanks for your giveaways!

I could use that too!

angela jiniel said...

I'd love to try this. It would definitely make it easier in the winter! Thanks!

Deborah said...

I've been wanting one of those.

Katy said...

I've been drying outside all summer, but don't yet have a good setup for indoors this winter. Hope I win!

Dea-chan said...

Yes please!

Chile said...

Well, since we're seriously considering life in a 5th wheel with no yard (for a "real" clothesline), I could really use this.

Summer said...

I would love one of those!

-Summer in Columbia, MO

Holy crow thats cool!! Would be awesome!!

sloejennfizz said...

My drying rack keep trying to fall to bits so this would be great to win!

Amy said...

I already use my clothes line some, but this neat little gadget sure would be put to good use at my house :-)

Two Flights Down said...

Awesome. Could totally go for that. Looking forward to line drying all of my laundry (as I will have the space by October to do it!) again!

Tree Huggin Momma said...

That is so awesome, and made in the good old USA as well! I have a great drying system, but having more drying space wouldn't hurt. I would love one of those racks. Got a badge for this Challenge? I would like to add it to my site. I'll link back to the original post, but I like the look of badges and don't know how to create them myself. Trying to cheat and get caught up on all the laundry before 10/1 so I can get into a rythem. :)

wickedliz@hotmail.com said...

I would love to get in on the drawing for this one! :)

Michelle said...

This is what my mom used to use... she found one at a garage sale in the 70's (I think it was an antique when she got it!) and used it all the time!
I'd love to win one!

Sarah said...

Awesome, I could dry my kids diapers on the racks if I won this one. The diapers are standing in the way of my signing up for the challenge. We do everything else but the quantity of laundry is just too much with the diapers too!

Mary H said...

This rack is so cute! I'd love to have one of these.

Surviving and thriving on pennies said...

would work perfectly in my garage. I want to line dry this winter as well. It will be my first year.

Yvonne said...

I dry outside now but need a system for indoors during the winter and this looks great.

meg said...

Looks perfect! And totally workable in our space! Awesome!

madwoman-doing-cartwheels said...

We are finally back in a house after apartment living for 3 years. My goal is to do the obvious--line dry. Thanks for the motivation. This would be a nice item to own!

Robb & Nancy said...

I would love to win one of these. We can dry outside most of the year, but we can get a lot of rain in the winter. This would be great for additional outside drying or inside, in the winter!

Nicole said...

I love this idea! I'd love to win it

robin said...

My sons moved up to our loft, taking with them my indoor drying space (the frame of their bunkbed). I'd love a nice indoor rack!

Kelly said...

Love that design! So spindly and awesome.

Robj98168 said...

Cool- in addition to a clthes rack, one could decorate it with L.E.D. Lights and use as a christmas tree.

Vickie said...

This looks pretty sweet. I could get a lot of use out of it.

swiggett said...

oo oo! please enter me!

Laura said...

That would work perfect in small spaces!

Leanne said...

Here in Colorado there aren't too many weeks I have to go without drying on the line outside... but somehow the weeks that are too cold & snowy tend to turn into either piles of laundry "waiting for a sunny day" (good excuse, no?) or more frequent use of the dryer. I could totally go for a free-standing solution that would work inside as well as out, and supplement the existing line!

Angie said...

I would love to win one of these! It would sure save me a lot. I don't have anywhere outside that I could put a clothes line and we live in the city w/3 sides of street to our house and a very small yard.

Rachael said...

We've been doing indoor drying by hanging wet clothes over our metal dining room chairs or on our recently acquired next-to-the-dumpster wobbly pull-apart rack. I would love to win that drying rack!

Neat!

Can fit in a corner, you say? Sounds pretty cool to me. Add my name, please.

I'd love to have the tripod drying rack! But if I don't win, I'll purchase one anyway. It looks like a perfect design.

Stephanie said...

Please enter me in the drawing. Thanks.

Oh yes, I'd love to win that!

this would work well on my small apartment patio!

Awsome design. I could really use something that agile.

I would love another indoor drying rack.

That would be perfect. Count me in.

KLund said...

That looks awesome. With 5 kids still at home, I don't have enough space to dry all my clothes inside on bad weather days.

Christine F. said...

Ooooh! Nice rack! ;) I hope I win, thanks for the chance.

Nijaau said...

I could really use one of those. I have just started line drying my clothes and have the hardest time finding space to dry all my bath towels.

Mrs. R said...

Boy I'd sure like one of those.

Cynthia in Denver said...

We are relegated to hanging clothes over the backs of dining room chairs and the shower curtain rod to air dry our clothes at this time.

I dream everyday of a yard!

Katie said...

Oo oo oo pick me!!

please enter me--looks perfect for our family

Loving that clothesline! My old line is sadly under a seeping black walnut tree, so I am anxiously looking for one I can set up in my driveway! Perfecto!

I have an accordion-style one now in my apartment, and it would be wonderful to have another one, as I tend to do laundry in bulk and never have enough room!

Carissa said...

This rack looks awesome! I would love to win it... :)

Tawney Peterson said...

Looks really neat! Thanks for the giveaway.

Shannon said...

Shannon Gittleman, Tampa, FL - need a new indoor rack; my accordian rack is definitely wobbly and now rusty.

Adrienne said...

Throwing my name in the hat!

Nina said...

that is an awesome clothes dryer. I just got rid of (gave to charity) and huge old plastic one I have from the olympics years ago. I recently used it for drying children's art but it mostly just took up room.

De in D.C. said...

This would be so useful! I started cloth diapering a few months ago, and feel guilty about throwing those eco-friendly dipes in the dryer, but have no place to conveniently sun them outside.

KM said...

Just what I need to keep me line drying through the winter...

Pam said...

I could really use that. I've been hanging clothes everywhere around here. If it didn't move, I was going to hang something on it, LOL!

-Pam in NC

FernWise said...

I could sure use this dryer. Same reasons as before - haven't had a working dryer since the beginning of the year!

that would make air drying much nicer! Thanks for the giveaway :-)

Rebecca said...

I could put that to good use. :) The humidity here is so high much of the year that an indoor rack is the only way to go.

Kas said...

This looks awesome!

Elizabeth said...

Wow. I've never seen a drying rack like this one. Please put me on the list for possible winners!!

Thanks!

Kate said...

Please count me in for the drawing! We line dry all our clothes, all year long, inside. Often we could use just a little more real estate to get the bigger loads hung up. This looks like it would fit the bill. Thanks for the chance to win!

I could hang 12 towels at once??? I'm in!

PamG said...

Pam in AZ here! I need this because my seniors' trailer park is giving me crap about having a clothesline!

That looks so nifty!
