We had two types of laundry rope. One was a twisted rope with suction cups that could not hold the weight of damp socks. It’s saving grace were the hooks that could be hooked on the rope after winding the rope arould say the shower rod and towel holder. The second rope was a tightly braided Rick Steves laundry rope with velcrow straps on each end. This was a better deisgn since the braid was woven so tightly that it held all items well and the velcrow could stand up to the weight of wet clothes. Unfortunately we ran out of room in the bathroom to use it well.
