Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ginya4 Perfect for my drying needs
I had an x-frame folding metal drying rack for many years and loved its reasonable size and flexibility. It finally broke during a recent move so I was pleased to find this product at a reasonable price. The replacement is exactly the same but lighter weight. It folds up completely flat is the perfect drying rack for my needs. Will see how it holds up.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PeteyBaby OK For T-Shirts, Lingerie, Lightweight Stuff Only! BAD For Sheets, Pants Towels + Heavy Items...
This drying rack is good ONLY for very lightweight clothing - underwear, socks, t-shirts, lingerie, baby clothes, dish clothes...! It is not good for towels, sheets, pants -- or anything heavy that you want to dry *without* wrinkles.
The problem is, the wires are very thin, sway under the lightest weight and then the clothing / items crumples just a touch -- but noticeably enough -- and it dries with lots of wrinkles. So when I put ie, a wet dress shirt across it, it dries with a big wrinkled crease where it lies on the bar. Same for any pants, pillow cases etc. As the bar bends, the fabric bunches up and dries smooshed! It doesn't matter on t-shirts or polo shirts or jeans that are just going to look a touch rumpled anyway -- but on clothing or items that you expect to look crisp and flat… it's going to be wrinkled. You can see in the pics below, how all the items on the rack crumple up as they dry. So everything comes out dry… and wrinkled!
This rack is best for small stuff like baby clothing, t'shirts, underwear, lingerie, dish towels etc. And it has enough space for 1 person's clothes. But it definitely won't do for a normal family load!
Overall not big or sturdy enough for sheets, towels, or lots of clothes. But fine if you only need something light and basic for simple things that don't have to be wrinkle free.
I'd probably bring it back but I'm sure HD would probably just toss it in the garbage and create waste if I returned it. And the whole reason I bought an air drying rack was to save some gas and electricity, reduce waste, and go natural! So I'll keep it. Use it occasionally for small, light weight stuff! But will go out and find / buy another rack that works better for the bigger heavier things I need to dry!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Scrapper Compact and easy to use
This rack has the option of drying a garment flat or hanging individual items over the rods. Folds flat for storage. And it fits right into my bathtub for drip-dry hand washed items.
