Has anyone missed seeing my laundry this Spring? Somehow, moving my clothes rack out to the balcony for the day just isn't as satisfying (or as efficient!) as some clothes pins and good old-fashioned clothesline!
I knew I would miss my nice clothes line when we moved from our country-ish Ohio rental house to an apartment in a Seattle suburb!
Yesterday was another beautiful, perfect sunny day, and we ventured out to the balcony. Several yards of old clothesline and a scissors in hand, the boys helped me rig up a baby clothes line across the balcony (top picture) and a short line up high for my Tibbe line.
Each section of the Tibbe Line is a foot in length and holds 7 hangers. In just a yard of space, I can hang 21 large items! The Tibbe line, clothes line, and hangers are completely removable. The line is hung on two hooks that were already up there! How providential! :)
Our lease said nothing about laundry regulations, we're on the top floor, and there are many trees around, so I am hoping that my efforts remain unnoticed.
Since we are on the top floor (and no a/c!) not using the dryer this summer will really help keep our home cooler, along with saving some money!
Do any of you have experience with line-drying laundry in apartment complexes? Tips, ideas, and advice would be welcome! :)
