Drying racks. They live in a closet in my back living room. I set them up on my back deck, which is a sun trap - house walls on 2 sides blocking breezes, catches sun from the SE & S. In the winter I set them up inside, as I mentioned.jsmit wrote:What do you all use for a clothes line?
I keep meaning to put up a clothesline, and I've looked at a retractable one, but the racks work fine.
But NOT the criss-cross ones that collapse if the top gets lifted!!! I have & love one like #304 here:
Though I needed a hook made of a metal coat hanger to keep it open - my sister's & mother's are tighter & stay open on their own. You can actually close it with the clothes on it to fit it through a doorway (like when it starts raining - you can bring the whole rack of clothes in at once!).
I have 2 of these & like that the rack is thin so you can use clothespins to hold on things that would fly away:
But the connectors between legs & top are flimsy & one broke on each. If another 1 or 2 go it will be useless.
(Another green thing - I don't use paper towels, I use rags, kept in a bucket under each sink, washed frequently. So there are lots of bits of cloth on my racks that get blown off easily!)
And I put shirts on plastic hangers and dry them on a rack like this:
