The Sheila Maid® Airer - a classic from a bygone age.
In Great Britain throughout the 18th and early 20th century no kitchen, wash-house or scullery was complete without a ceiling mounted, pulley operated clothes airer. However, during the middle part of the twentieth century the advent of tumble dryer led to the "pulley" or "creel" falling out of favour.
In 1986, Sheila Johnston, realising the environmental concerns over use of fossil fuels and also the damaging effects of repeated tumble drying on laundry, re-introduced this iconic item to the market, and so was born the Sheila Maid®.
The first product - the iconic 4 rail airer with clear coated cast iron metal parts - was soon making a comeback in British households and the range was expanded to include more colour choices and a range of sizes.. Nowadays the benefits and ease of use the Sheila Maid® is enjoyed worldwide.
Tried, tested and loved by generations of happy users, the Sheila Maid® airer has regained its rightful place as an integral and indispensable part of the kitchen or utility room.
