Belated Earth Day

clothesline

 

In homage to Earth Day, I wanted to remind everyone about one of the easiest and cheapest ways to save electricity: the humble clothesline.  I dried three loads of laundry within a couple of hours.  Although I don’t like the way the my clothes smell after drying outside, I adore the way towels react: super absorbent and long lasting freshness.  The sunshine works wonders as a whitener, and the wind will substitute for starch and the iron (thus adding another energy savings!)

    I think that clothes drying on the clothesline, dancing in the sun-kissed wind, are one of the most beautiful sights on earth. We have a southern exposure with lots of wind, so our clothes dry really, really fast.

    I love that phrase: dancing in the sun-kissed wind.
