I had my son put up a thick chrome rail in my bathroom/laundry and it is about 3 meters long.Braced into both sides of walls.Looks great works very well.

Can hold a Huge amount of washing that is on coat-hangers.

Just brilliant!
Oh! jonaj,
had same in my pressing room!
It was marvellous! For storage, & airing.
Trousers, pressed business shirts, uniforms hung up there, ready for wearing.

I know, it is the best idea...mine has been up 5 years, and used every single day :)
by jonaja
Mine was used for 40 years, again, daily!
Wish I had one now, would make my life simpler! Cheers!

I don't generally wash if it is raining, but if I had to I guess I would have to use the dryer, which I don't particularly like.
I also have an extendable small line in the laundry

I have a large covered and paved area at the back of the house and I have lines there for this purpose. I try not to wash if it is raining but it turns up so quickly in this country. :-))

Our house is on stumps so we often hang clothes underneath. It's also good on non rainy days for stuff that is too delicate and will fade in direct sunlight. We have a dryer too, but I try not to use it too much.
We hang it in the laundry. We have a pull out washing line that we use if the weather is too inclement to put it outside.
Nowadays, in the dryer!
In the bathroom
On coat hangers, on a clothes horse (air drier) on the back decking
I've a large clothes airer which lives out in one of my back rooms as well as one that hangs over my laundry door whic my mother bought me about 40 odd years ago. This is the one I use the most. It's obviously smaller with about 6 rungs so anything that can be hung goes on coathangers and the remainder pegged. I also hang the dried outdoor washing on this before sorting, folding or ironing. I do have a clothes drier but prefer not to use this if possible.
I have a fair-sized laundry room so clothes are put on hangers to dry. Do the same with sheets and towels when necessary. I also have a large roofed, paved area outside my lounge - I put a couple of clothes dryers out there when it is raining. It doesn't take long in the Brisbane climate for clothes to dry. I never use my tumble dryer mainly for environmental reasons. I have had this dryer for about 6 years and have used it twice in that time - when it was really humid here and the clothes just would not dry.
I live in an apartment/unit, so I mostly hang all my laundry in the spare room! I do have a balcony, but the sunlight only gets to that area in the afternoon. And when it's windy the airers get blown over so I have to wash everything again!
I have made a makeshift clothesline under the pergola where I hang clothes if it is raining. I also make use of the curtain rods inside the house. I'll hang what I can on coat-hangers and put these on the rods. This works well if it is humid outside and we have the air conditioning on inside.
by Vee
Lucky. My curtain rods are those idiotic things that you can't hang anything on. At least I have my pergola. *sigh* I swear my next house will have a huge laundry room and a chrome rod across it like jonaj has.
by Rice
That sounds like a great idea. Our laundry is tiny. :-|

Inside the house.
I ended up buying two moveable(on castors) clothes racks. about 3 ft. in length. They go in the garage and are fine on rainy days, but only for anything on coat hangers. Also have a clothes horse for pegging undies etc.
I have a permanent proper sized line under the carport so clothes can be washed and dried anytime, very handy as they are away form sun and rain, and I have room for the car as well woo hoo! I don't use the dryer anymore although I have one.
