Solar Powered Clothes Drying Apparatus

I grew up with a clothesline in my backline yard. My grandparents had clotheslines. Our first home had a clothesline. I bought a drying rack for using on our porch at our apartment. And last year, for mothers day, I got a clothesline here. I'm sentimental like that ;-)

We've used cloth diapers on both kids and the sun is an awesome bleaching agent for them. And I challenge you to find something that smells better than line dried sheets. One of my favorite things about spring is hanging out the bedding and putting on spring quilts. Gosh, I sound weird, don't I?

We also hung out outside this morning. We saw about a dozen robins in the backyard!  A sure sign of spring. I can't wait to hear the peepers! We did a little work preparing the garden.

So many exciting things coming this spring! And if you haven't checked it out yet, here's my latest Grit blog. And welcome to my new readers! 


  1. I LOVE line drying our clothes. There's nothing like a slightly scratchy towel to dry off with and stiff blue jeans. Of course, those are two of the things my husband hates about it.
    I've lived in a city where there is a VERY smelly factory and haven't been able to hang my clothes for almost a year and a half. I've used my rack in the basement from time to time.
    We're moving soon, and one of the things I'm most excited about is being able to hang my laundry again!

    1. I'm excited for you! My husband sounds a lot like yours. He tolerates it, though, because he doesn't have to do the laundry!

      Good luck on your move and thanks for the comment!

  2. I also grew up with a clothesline....but my husband says the clothes stink when dried outside...His mom had a dryer! I still dry some of my clothes outside using a rack because we live in an RV. My RV has a dryer along with a wash machine

    1. My husband has some things he doesn't like dried outside. But he's pretty go with the flow. That's neat you have a washer AND dryer in your RV!!!
