Everything Old is New Again














I remember hanging clothes on the line in our backyard as a young girl. It was just what you did. We didn't do it for the environment.

My reasons reflect my mother's reasons for hanging clothes on the line though. It's hot. I mean, really hot. The laundry still needs to be done and it just heats up the house even more. The best alternative is to let the sun work it's magic on those wet clothes without adding to the heat in the house.

On Saturday, I just had to have a clothesline. It's my favorite purchase of the summer (so far) and should pay for itself in a few years. The DH calls it the new solar clothes drier. I kind of like that.

Oh boy! This makes me want a clothesline again. I was trying to figure out where to put one at the new house, but haven't come up with anything great. Sheets dried in the sun smell heavenly.

Plus, it works better than our beloved Zout at getting out the stains. The sun can bleach out ANYTHING!
