Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
We have one of those...the only problem is that the line gets mildew on it. If it's not wiped off, it transfers to whatever gets hung across it. In my case, an expensive hand made quilt of my wife's..I still hear that subject brought up from time to time.
Clothes stops (the Navy version of clothes pins) would prevent that.
I remember when those were common in yards, the umbrella type too.
I've had one of those in my backyard for ever.
I used to live in Carlsbad, just above San Diego. Couldn't have a clothesline, it wasn't allowed by the HOA. They circulated a memo that said clotheslines were damaging to the environment(!), so we could only use gas or electric dryers; go figure.Now I live in Texas, where I was hoping for more sensible ways- but the HOA here has the same rule!Whatever happened to common sense?
Reduces outside temp by evaporation, reduces waste heat from dryer to environment, reduces power plant emissions directly (no dryer) reduces indirect waste heat to environment from home ac ( not all dryer heat dumped outside) and further reduces power plant emissions due reduced ac.
Nothing smells better than sheets that have been sun dried on a clothes line... in a pinch you can hang clothes on an ol hot walker and turn that baby on.
I agree with you Brig...the smell of sun dried sheets takes me back to my childhood Mrs CW
The problem is the hoa.
