Hang Me Out To Dry

Lately we've been making a few household investments. I'm working on a slipcover for our (horrendously cat-scratched) couch, DH finally fixed the ceiling fan light in the living room, and we bought a portable clothes line.

We're always looking for ways to be more "green", and, hey, we're cheap frugal, so the idea of not paying to run the dryer is very appealing. However, we're also renters and sort of lazy, so digging holes, mixing concrete, and installing big poles when we'll eventually move away anyway was probably out. Then one day I stumbled up these umbrella-style drying racks. Our dilemma is solved.

For the time being we've set it up in the laundry room. I gave it a trial run over the weekend and it holds a full load of laundry quite well. Once it's a little less snowy outside we'll put it to the test outdoors. I think one of these would work great for apartment and condo dwellers with a patio!

Will it hold a king set of sheets? I would love doing that during the summer and not going way down in the back yard, I don't have my "clothes pole" any longer and the sheets hang to low to the ground.

Hmm, king size sheets would be a stretch with this dryer. It's perfect for a full load of smaller items like shirts and pants, but probably not as good for sheets.
