LAUNDRY LINE - VIA: HOMESTEAD REVIVAL - "I don't know who's more excited about our new laundry line: me or my husband! He did such a lovely job crafting exactly what I wanted. Quite the perfectionist when it comes to woodworking, he wanted them to be just right. And they are!"

For many, especially younger generations, the latter statement is closest to being true. When the clothes dryer entered the America household in the 1950s, line-drying soon fell out of vogue and families began to rely on this modern appliance to quickly and easily complete a necessary household chore.

Solar clothes dryer.  If weather permits dry your clothes outside, no electricity needed. I never thought of covering my clothes line.

Laundry line solution - Mounting them you need an extra brace to make them more stable for when the line is pulled tight. Thus the white metal braces. Some standard eye screws hold a Lehman's 1700# galvanized cable wrapped in vinyl. Finally, to get a really tight line, we used Lehman's clothesline ratchets.
