12 Fun DIY Mitten Drying Racks
Winter can be a struggle. Not only is there all the salting and shoveling, but you need to find a place to store and dry all that winter gear every time you come in the house. Here are 12 fun DIY mitten drying racks to try this season.
Empty Can Rack
Before you throw those empty soup cans in the recycling bin, try using them as a drying and storage unit. This DIY drying rack system uses cans that are cleaned out then screwed onto a piece of wood. When mittens are wet, drape them over the cans, then when they are dry they can be shoved in the cans for storage.

Mitten and Shoe Rack
You can build your own mitten and shoe dryer with some scrap wood and galvanized wire. Have lots of little ones in your family? Make this DIY drying rack longer to accommodate all those mittens and boots.
Closet Glove Rack
Use the back of a door to hang items to dry and keep them organized. Just use some aluminum wire and clothespins strung between screw eyes.
Magazine Door Rack
This hanging magazine basket is used on the back of a door. Store dry mittens in the top two bins and use the bottom bin as a drying area. You can add some clothespins to pin up the mittens so they have even more space to dry out.

Instant Drying Rack
If you don’t have an area near the door large enough to store and dry all that gear, try using an instant drying rack in your laundry area. Use it to not only hang mittens and other wet winter gear, but other items you don’t want to throw in the dryer.
