So, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit, but I am quite thrilled with my new clothesline. It’s one of those umbrella-shaped clotheslines that looks like it’s from outer space… But – WOW- does it do the job well!
1. It holds 6 loads of laundry. I can wash all of our clothes on laundry day and hang everything. Hello energy savings and a reduced electric bill!
2. It rotates. I can stand in one place and access every single line without straining a bit.
3. It only needs a small patch of sun. We didn’t want a long stretch of clothesline. This design is compact enough for an urban backyard.
4. It closes up. Were we to throw a lovely garden party, I could ask my dear husband to collapse the laundry umbrella, so that it looks basically like a post. Or, even better, he could take it out of the hole entirely and put it in the garage. Nice.
