And for drying purposes, a folding clothes drying rack can be instantly set up on the balcony, on the patio or in the bathroom for fresh, air dried convenience. And with many styles and shapes to choose from, there should be no excuse for not doing smaller loads more often when needed.

Whether you are a staunch doll collector or your little girl is growing out of her “dressing dolly” phase, you may need to address the issue of how to go about storing those doll clothes for another time. There are a bunch of ways to go about doing this and one that is not hard on the pocket book is to keep any old shoe boxes you may have. Simply layer the shoe box with acid free tissue paper and lay the clothes inside. You may also want to store the show box in a zip lock style plastic bag so no moisture gets in. Easy and cheap.
