When we bought our house two years ago, I was very excited about the existing clothesline - and I still am. It's wonderful! On a hot, windy day (this is easy to find during a summer in Kansas) our laundry is dry in no time. Not to mention that I love using a little less power, the clothes smell great and I get a little more exercise (our laundry room is in our basement).
Gotta love the simple things!
Hope you all find a few of them this summer.
