Mensagem:  "Depois vou tirar as roupas do varal" (if the clothing is outside) =
Later/afterwards I am going to take down the wash...
Later/afterwards I am going to bring in the wash...


"Depois vou tirar as roupas do varal" (if the clothing is inside on a wheeled rack)
Now we have a problem.  I won't say that these racks don't exist, but they are not common in the USA.  I guess one could be called a laundry rack, drying rack, etc.  I would say:
Later/afterwards I am going to take the wash off the rack.

Note that "wash" is almost certain to be used instead of "clothing" (roupas).  Even if all the articles are items of clothing, "wash" is going to be the preferred term.
