Sorry buds, but...

…if you call a clothes rack/maiden/airer a minky you really do deserve to be thrown into the sea.

Clothes horse. Is that OK?

Perfectly fine.

Doesn’t sound like a pubic wig.

It’s an airer.
My ironing board is a Minky

Does anyone do this? Never heard it before and hope to never hear it again

Or a ket wig, haha.

Actually, is it Scouse slang? Like “the 'leccy”, “ciggies” etc

I think just Balonz when his clothes horse was actually a ‘Minky’ brand.

I am 100% behind @bugduv in this but also I 100% think these people don’t exist.

I’m on the side of minky. I mean, I’ve never used the word, but I would like to be thrown into the sea

Did you know the Minky brand of laundry hardware and textiles has both the Royal and Princes Warrant? The pride of Rochdale.

A minky is a clothes horse? This explains a lot.

Established in the Uk in 1941

I just assumed they were massive 'Allo 'Allo fans and had wanted to call them ‘monkey’ because of the association with monkeys climbing trees.

Just putting my minky out the back garden so everything dries properly

I’ve now got an outdoor Minky with two retractable lines.
