Line drying is remarkably effective and energy efficient -- and that clean, fresh smell is worth the extra effort. This removable clothesline can be kept coiled on the porch and rigged up in seconds.
Clothesline, long enough to span the distance between your porch and a nearby tree or post
Two metal eye hooks
On the porch end, thread the line through a metal eye hook, and wind it around a sailor's cleat installed about a foot below the hook.
At the other end, screw another hook into the tree or post. Tie the clothesline to a snap shackle, which makes attaching and detaching the cord a breeze.
