Post Could Clotheslines Be Coming Back?

It started out innocently enough. Concerned about global warming and her family's energy consumption, Michelle Baker wanted to hang her wash outside. She scoured stores for a clothesline durable enough to withstand Vermont winters and classy enough for her Waterbury backyard. She came back empty-handed every time.

Not if Mrs. Isaac has any say in the matter.

I'm old enough to remember clothes lines. Towels would come off it stiff and scratchy. Not fluffy and nice. Washers and dryers helped to define our modern world along with TV and dishwashers. Can our modern world survive more than a few generations? It's sometimes hard to imagine my grandfather rode in a horse and carriage not very long ago.

I find it much mores sensible to simply not worry about my family's energy consumption than to fool with clotheslines.

My sentiments too! Not to mention if they are hung on the clothes line then ironing is involved...something I don't do!

I would use a clothesline if I had one. My dad and stepmom still use one now, the only time she uses her dryer is on rainy days or winter.
