Using a clothes line can save you a lot on energy bills. Better than that, using the sun to dry your clothes doesn’t produce any pollution.
We’ve come up with a clothes line situation that works well for us. First off it is close by: right out my door. Second, it is located under an overhang of the roof so my cloths never get re-wet by an unexpected rain. Third, it is located out on the side of my house so it is not in immediate view of visitors.
A carport might also be a good location for a clothes line if there is plenty of air circulation.
A. Screw an eyehook(s) into the wall: one for each line you intend to string. Remember to place the clothes lines high enough so you can walk under them without hitting your head.
B. Use a carabiner because it has one side that has a spring-hinge (that opens) making it easy to take down and re-hang the clothes line. (optional)
C. Tie a clothes line to the carabiner.
D. Attach an eyehook to the opposite wall at the same height and matching location on the wall. Lace the clothes line through.
E. Pull the line tight and tie off the clothes line(s) on a cleat.
