On the line

This Summer I have been line-drying clothes whenever possible. It's the first time I have done this in - well, forever, really. My mom used to hang laundry on the clothesline quite a bit, but that was long ago, and she isn't able to do that sort of thing anymore. But I can, and the weather has been quite agreeable this year, so I've been taking advantage of our "solar powered clothes dryer." The method has some disadvantages - mechanical drying is better at removing lint, and if the wind isn't in your favor, many clothes come out stiff unless you use fabric softener - but you can't beat the smell of clothes that have been dried on a line!
