Wednesday Wanderings And Wonderings

Laundry day

The familiar laundry drying racks that dot Singapore’s public housing landscape.

These heavy bamboo poles loaded with laundry should soon become a sight of the past. Last year it was announced that they should be replaced with a new retractable clothes drying rack. So laundry drying outside is not going to disappear soon but it won’t be as prominent.

Flats built between 1987 and 1997 will be eligible for the upgrade under the extended Home Improvement Programme (HIP)

The new laundry rack comes with six horizontal stainless steel poles that can be extended and retracted within the frame of the rack. Residents can easily reach the poles from the kitchen window when hanging and retrieving laundry.
