The rods are big enough not to leave creases, and stretchy items like sweaters can be laid flat over the top. I was a little concerned by the residue on the metal when I first wiped it down, but it didn’t leave marks on my clothes and this wasn’t present on subsequent dustings, so I don’t think it will corrode or rust. Good purchase!" —NStephen
