    Oh, so you guys took the dry weather hey! I move up here, and we had the SE region storms that were declared a national disaster. Hence I'm SES, lol. Looking like a great storm season coming up now too! Only had one decent thunderstorm this month so far. Even with all that, we still line dry!

    Ona side note, do your washing in cold water, saves energy.

    I love to line dry! We need to reground one of my clothesline poles though I have to run them in the dryer for 5 minutes though, I can't handle hard clothes.

    I don't have a clothes line, but I have a drying rack. I haven't used a dryer in over a year.

    But what do you do in the wintertime?

    And how do you get the towels to dry properly?

    As I said above, you use a clothes horse indoors, or hang them under cover. Towels dry fine in the sun, no different to anything else.

    I had very little space inside to line dry and no way to hang clothes outside so I made my own drying rack to use inside. I used instructions from e-how and some leftover 1" x 1" wood pieces from another project. Instead of dowel rods I used 3/8" pvc pipe. All this was saved for me by a couple of plumbers that live in our area. Not only do I save money and resources by line-drying, but I saved both by using recycled items to make the drying rack. Win, win!

    I love little DIY tips and tricks like this! Anything I can do to live a little greener on base makes me happy.
