Take advantage of warm, breezy days by drying clothes the old-fashioned way. 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.
Buy a clothesline long enough to span the distance between your porch and a nearby tree or post. 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.
