Have you ever stopped to think about how traumatic washing laundry must be for laundry?
The fibers get saturated, stretched, weakened, and after all of that, they are tossed into an aggressive jostling, hot and dry environment. I’m invested in the idea of making our clothing last as long as possible, so I do everything I can to avoid the dryer.
When I was asked to review the Maximo Clothes Drying Rack by Bonita, I was skeptical – so many of these types of things are poorly made. I am pleased to say that this product exceeded expectations and I don’t want to be without it in my laundry arsenal.
The illustrations for the instructions could be a little clearer, possibly larger and the parts list had similar issues. This product has quite a few similarly sized metal pipes and the images for these pipes on the parts list were all centered making it very difficult to discern which pipes were which, especially when you are kneeling in the middle of the living room and you have two little daughters who are insanely curious about what you are doing.
That said, assembly was easy and took less than ten minutes, even with a toddler “helping”. The most trying part of the assembly process was when a plastic snap rivet went missing. It was discovered when I stood up and looked at where I was sitting.
The Maximo Clothes Drying Station, when fully assembled feels extremely solid, my confidence was increasing. The swing arms for hangers work very well, and can handle what I would call a moderate amount of weight. I would use the swing arms for kids clothing and for cotton shirts. I would not hang wet, heavy work pants off of them.
The drying racks are really where this item shines. There are three drying racks that are height adjustable. The sides of the racks can be pulled out from the assembly and can hang down, making the rack tremendously space efficient. Wet Sweaters are heavy, and most drying racks collapse under a wet that weight. The folks at Bonita must have considered concepts like the weight of wet clothing because the Maximo Clothes Drying Station feels like it can take a wet sweater with no stability issues.
The Maximo Clothes Drying Rack by Bonita is a solid product. It does exactly what it says it does and it does a lot in a small amount of space. It’s lightweight and portable. Speaking as someone who has gone through a fair share of drying rack items, I tend to feel like they are not as well-thought out as they should be. I truly like the Maximo Clothes Drying Rack by Bonita. It feels like a “finally something that works!” product. Thank you Bonita!
