DRIPPING kids, puddles of water, and wet bathing suits on the floor don’t make for a happy mom.
A quick and easy Dollar Tree DIY will keep your house from becoming an endless pit of wet towels and floaties.
Having a pool in the backyard might seem like a good idea until your kids start chasing most of the water inside.
So how do you prevent piles of wet objects from forming in the door frame?
Jay Munee says this DIY drying rack does the trick.
Jay posted a TikTok showing how to make a drying rack out of a broomstick and some hooks.
All items are available from Dollar Tree and are only $1.25
The first thing you need is a broom stick.
Dollar Tree’s long-handled brooms work great, but you’ll need to remove the soil if it’s not already separated.
Next you will need two Essentials Black Over-The-Door Hooks and four zip ties.
Using the broomstick as a base, use the zip ties to attach the hooks to either end of the pole.
Jay places the rack over the side of her fence to hang her wet pool gear.
If you have a fence or wall around your garden, you can hang the rack over it.
“You can use this to hang floaties or other pool stuff to dry for the next day or in your garage,” explains Jay.
You can also spray paint or decorate the frame however you like to match the aesthetics of your garden.
For moms who know what it’s like when eager kids jump out of the pool and run straight inside, this project was just what they needed.
“Omg thanks I definitely needed something for the pool,” commented one mum.
For just under $5, viewers thought about how to use this do-it-yourself video in a variety of ways.
One person wrote, “I’m having a luau birthday party later this month and I could use this for the Hawaiian lace and a center banner.”
