What material for garage clothes drying rack?
Some stuff I'll just hang to the rod from hangers, but others still definitely be just draped over it and whatnot (tents, snow chains, skis leaning against it, etc.)
I was defaulting to like a 1-1/2" or so wooden dowel/rod for the rod, but wonder how it'll hold up with getting wet itself? PVC pipe is hollow... not sure it has the rigidity? One minor idea I had for the pipe was to drill in holes every now and then, and then if I needed to i.e. drape something over it, could also get airflow through the pipe and to air out the "inside" of whatever is hanging on it... Then something like those steel poles/rodspipe, but are they themselves clean? I worry some oil or other residue that's on them would easily transfer on to my stuff?
Any material choice suggestions? The rod will ideally be approximately 65" long so a decent length... and while some stuff like a tent is quite light, a pair of snow chains I just rinsed off and want to hang dry are significantly heavier
