Outdoor Clothesline


From $174 at Sunshine Clotheslines

One of the best smells in the world is that of laundry dried in sunshine and wind. Forget dryer sheets — you can enjoy a fresh, natural smell by drying your clothes and towels on an outdoor clothes drying rack.

The Sunshine Clothesline is modeled after an umbrella-style outdoor clothesline patented in 1915 and used by Americans for more than a century. Made in Parkersburg, Iowa, the clothesline rotates in the wind, thereby shortening drying time. And you can easily spin the clothesline to bring open spaces directly to you instead of having to drag around a heavy laundry basket.
