The heat wave that is hitting most of the country might be forcing everyone indoors, but there are a few ways to take advantage of it, like line drying your laundry! Drying clothes outside might garner the raised eyebrow from neighbors, but it doesn't have to be an unstylish practice. Check out these products for ways to green your laundry and have fun too.
1 A simple and elegant outdoor clothesline.
2 Pulley Clothesline Kit, $70 from The Clothesline Shop. I love the simple hardware of this pulley system. Attach one end to your house and the other to a free-standing post of fence.
3 Sparrow Clips, $8.95 (for a set of 12) from Crate&Barrel. Line drying clothes take a bit more effort, but a little color and whimsy might just be the motivation you need!
4 Cotton Canvas Hamper, $32 from The Laundress. Made in the USA, this durable hamper can compress down for easy storage.
5 Curved Basket, $54 from West Elm. Made from rapidly renewable water hyacinth, this laundry basket is a stylish alternative to the plastic varieties.
