clotheslines anyone?

Just curious do any of you line dry your clothes? I was just on google and looking to buy a clothesline and this site came up. Some states out law line drying your clothes, really is this true? I just thought with prices rising on everything and energy out of control, I thought I would do my part. But, I don't want to get in trouble for doing it. lol

  • Wow.... Thank you for the idea!!  I hadn't even thought about doing that this year. I used to dry my sheets, blankets, and towels on a line at my old house. I'm sure its not illegal around here (north Georgia) so I may just put a little one out in the back yard this summer. I love the smell of line dried stuff!

  • I would if I lived in a safer neighborhood. I live on the main street of my city (it's literally Main St., lmao) and a lot of people come by our apartment building. It's a four-apartment house with a parking lot in the back. There's a clothesline out back, but I'm afraid that someone will steal whatever I put there. I'd have to sit there and make sure nobody took it O.O

  • I do, except in the winter. I won't traipse in the snow to dry clothes. I hung some towels out today but the wind blew most of them off. arggggg. When I was growing up we didn't have a dryer, so all of our clothes were hung on a line. As for it being illegal.... I've never heard of that.

  • I dont' think I'd ever do that. I have a big bug phobia and would hate nasty bugs on my clothes or birds pooping on them, etc

  • Why on Earth would it be illegal to line dry your clothes?
