You Can’t Dry LuLaRoe In A Dryer, So What Do You DO!?!?!

This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, please read our disclosure policy here

If you are wondering what happens when you dry LuLaRoe, the answer is honestly that it doesn’t last as long. The stuff is pretty much cheap crap and you shouldn’t buy LuLaRoe at all.

If you did buy a bunch of LuLaroe, then don’t dry it. And if you’re thinking about selling LuLaRoe, you should sell this instead.

So you bought a hundred and one pairs of leggings. Now what?

First, I’d congratulate you and suggest icing your fingers, because that’s pretty impressive.

Second, anyone who wears LuLaRoe knows about Wash Day. Oh…wash day.


You Can’t Dry LuLaRoe In A Dryer, So What Do You DO!?!?!

Standard care instructions tell you to wash inside out, with like colors in cold unicorn tears with angel feathers. (kidding!) That’s the easy enough part. Now, the hard part is drying your 101 pairs of LuLaRoe duds. Because unless you’re the uh-mazing domesticated goddess, chances are you’re like me.

You wear all the clothes you want to, and when the pile is about big enough to become sentient and eat you–that’s when you do laundry.

This means–you have a lot of laundry. And with LuLaRoe you can’t exactly wash, dry and chunk it in a hamper. It’s got to air dry.

Now, if you’re blessed with a whole laundry room and drying racks, I might hate you a little. For the rest of us, we have to figure out how the heck we’re going to keep our LuLaRoe looking good and fresh. It’s hard when you live in a cramped apartment or maybe in a house that doesn’t have a designated laundry room. If we weren’t headed into the fall, I’d totally recommend a clothes line… except with my luck squirrels would eat holes in the crotches of my leggings and the elastic out of my Lola skirts. Ug!

The easiest solution is to hang things load by load in a bathroom or somewhere. This means you have to exercise those domestic goddess chops and stick to slaying the laundry monster. It’s a hard job. Believe me. I’m pretty sure one of my cats got gobbled up as a snack. (Or he’s on top of the bookshelves, it’s a toss up)

But what if you can’t stash the wet stuff in the bathroom? Too many people in and out, you don’t want to do laundry for days. What are your options?

The first and easiest solution, especially for apartment dwelling LuLaRoers, is some form of the free standing drying rack. These were a god send back before I had cats.


Another option, if you’re okay with repairing a few holes in the wall, is a retractable clothesline you can install indoors. I had one of these when I lived in Thailand and sweet Jesus, it saved my bacon. It was hard enough finding clothes to fit my big, white booty without them walking off.


If you have a spare coat closet or some place that can hold a rolling rack, those are great. Especially for parties or packing. I very shortly inherited one (which broke after a few months!) and I loved it. Not only was I able to roll it into my apartment kitchen to dry on the tile, but it could go out on the patio, I could plan LuLa outfits for my week and organize stuff a lot better with them.


One suggestion I feel totally silly for not realizing is an over the door drying rack. Or towel rack! I always saw it and thought-TOWELS! Not LEGGINGS! This is one I’m probably going to have to steal, especially when all I need is one or two items.


If you’re into wall mounted solutions, maybe you own your own house, are long-time renters or just have a place you can install a few drying rack options, these are for you.

I’ve heard nothing but good things about the Ikea stainless steel drying rack. I have a friend who has six of these in her laundry closet and they’re hung so that they fit perfectly between each other when the doors are closed. It is a marvel of domestic goddess skill!


The accordion drying racks keep getting recommended to me. I’m a lot nervous about something fixed to my wall with this many moving parts, but so many recommendations has to be saying something. Right? I’m really considering these, especially since my drying area is a bit slim on wall space.


One item I’ve been eyeballing, despite the price and lack of reviews, is this sleek murphy wall mounted system. I like how it stands the chance of blending into the wall of our den and not be such a glaring, obvious domestic tool.


So, I’m dying to hear what your LuLaRoe drying solutions are? Because my den needs some help and my LuLaRoe addiction isn’t ending!

  1. I have a two piece drying rack that opens like an umbrella, the top to hang clothes, the bottom for its legs. It fits in my shower. I have thousands of dollars worth of LLR but I do the laundry as soon as a get enough for one load. I wash on
    cold/cold with extra water, and hang dry in my shower using a pail for transport. Not to bad because I only wash about ten or fifteen LLR at a time. If you do your laundry as soon as you get one load, then most of your LLR is already clean and you don’t have 20 loads to do at once! I have 80 LLR dresses and about 80 pairs of leggings plus dozens of shirts and I can’t wear all that in a week or two. So I just keep doing laundry and dirty clothes don’t pile up for long!

  2. Good day I am so happy I found your website, I really found you by mistake, while I was looking on Askjeeve for something else, Nonetheless I am here now and would just like
    to say kudos for a marvelous post and a all round interesting blog (I also love the
    theme/design), I don’t have time to browse it all at the minute but I have saved it and also included your RSS feeds,
    so when I have time I will be back to read more, Please do keep up the great job.

  3. I’m a LuLaRoe retailer and I have dried many of my LuLaRoe items in the dryer. The last place we rented we have to dry everything in the dryer because we lived in the middle of a rainforest and nothing dried if it was hung out to dry. Never lost one item to drying.

    Now everything is hang dried, but we aren’t in a much dryer area ?

  4. I use a shower curtain rod. (Tension Type)
    You can put it in a doorway. Put your leggings on a hanger and hang on the rod.

  5. How about the clothes lines you see in hotel room bathrooms to hank up wet swim suits, etc. They are over the bathtub and are retractable.

  6. My husband does the laundry, and mine go in the dryer. They have survived thus far. Holding my breath.

  7. I use pants hangers and hang them all over my house, lol. I love the retractable clothesline installed indoors idea! I’m totally doing that in my dining room and I could also use it for drying my daycare kids artwork 🙂

  8. We have a spindel. And a fold out laundry dryer in the garage.

    Granted our weather allows for many sunny days and outside drying, but when it rains, the spindle is amazing. It basically wrings the Excess water out of clothing after a wash and spin. On summer days clothes dry within 5 minutes of being spindled then hung.

  9. I actually put them in the dryer on ultra low heat for 20 minutes and then air dry for 30. I have pants hangers (clips on them) that work fine for the leggings if they are hung in the shower but the shirts aren’t so easy to find space for. I used to lay them on my bed but they make my bedding damp. I just decided to dry them all in the dryer but on a very conservative setting.
    I’ve had no issues at all.

  10. So the way I dry mine won’t work for most people, but I have to share anyway. My daughter is a competitive gymnast and we have what is called a “kip bar” (basically a free standing low bar) in our living room. I wash mine in the evenings and after she goes to bed I hang all my LLR on hangers on the bar to dry. The shirts are normally dry by morning, but if they aren’t I just leave them there until she comes home from school (normally the leggings take a little longer if I don’t use pants hangers) or until she needs to use the bar to practice. My husband makes fun of me for it saying it’s the most expensive drying rack ever… ??

  11. I just use hangers and hang them in my doorway on the trim.

  12. I love ALL of these options! I wash my LuLa goodness in mesh laundry bags. Then, if my hubby happens to move clothes from the washer to dryer my clothes don’t accidently get tossed in- he knows if it’s in a bag it can’t go in the dryer! I’m currently using the shower curtain rod as my hanging rack… but all of your options are so practical and don’t take up too much space! Thanks for sharing!

  13. LOVE this post!

    I actually bought something like this after I realized what a pain drying my leggings was going to be. (Note: I’m due for a second one LOL) https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/37/e7/10/37e71042a51b6446383900206b1066ef.jpg

    A couple other notes.

    For the space challenged, they make collapsible rolling racks as well. That way you don’t have to have it UP all the time. You can use it for drying and then fold it until next time you do laundry. Godsend for tight spaces

    To make the Murphy wall-mounted system look even LESS like a domestic tool, you could put some sort of image on the inside, so when it’s folded shut, it would look like a funky frame over the picture.

  14. I just have a foldable, free-standing drying rack. It really isn’t big enough (considering my burgeoning LLR collection), and I’m also looking for some more alternatives. ?

  15. They also sell folding rolling racks. I have one and love it!

    1. has anyone thought of using the garage? lots of air space. And if you are worried about any orders forget it. Fold or roll up a dryer sheet with them.Your leggings smell great & everything else in the drawer does also. Give it a try, see if you like it.
