Common dirty laundry baskets and laundry drying racks are frustrating to use. They may be functional, but when not needed, they take away lots of space. 'lean' is a tidier, more elegant solution. The dirty laundry sack can easily be carried to the washing machine. When filled with more laundry, it gets bigger, but when empty, it just leans tightly against the wall. The drying rack is especially small when folded. Four wooden rods are connected in the middle with hinge screws. Due to the alignement of the hinge screws, the rods fold up in a double X construction and lean against themselves. One full load from the washing machine fits without problems.
