With a couple of nails, some sturdy line, a few wooden clothes pin and three wonderful old trees, I created the ultimate clothes dryer. It is so easy to operate and very efficient. The operating manual's only instructions are to be aware of the weather report!
... and I couldn't be happier with it. I find it so relaxing to just take my laundry outdoors while listening to birdsong as I hang each piece. I actually look forward to laundry now. I am going to plant some flowering perennials around those trees to add to the pleasure.
My goal is to plan my laundry days around our weather from now until winter and only use our electric dryer for a 5 minutes fluff on clothing. I'm looking so forward to the impact it will make on our energy expenses!
