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
- Sailor's cleat
- Snap shackle
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.
