Sheila Maid – dry your clothes the Victorian way

Sheila_maid

Before the days of the tumble dryer, there were only two ways to dry your clothes – outside on the washing line or if it was raining, on something like the Sheila Maid.

A standard feature in just about every Victorian and Edwardian terrace (and still to be found in some), this air dryer is making a return in these eco-friendly times. – saving energy and saving you money. And not only that – if you have a period property, this quirky pine and cast iron item would sit perfectly in the kitchen and could well be a selling point.

Prices vary according to size, but expect to pay between £49 and £62.
