Green Home: Tom's Umbrella Clothesline

Name: Tom Location: Sunny North Oakland Welcome to Tom, who figured out a way to convert his patio umbrella into a laundry day clothesline: "I have a small (5ft wide by 20 ft long) balcony. I switch out my large patio style umbrella with a folding clothesline that looks like a spiderweb. It fits right into the heavy umbrella base and folds into a corner of a closet when not in use.

"The line cost me $50 at OSH, but I feel greener, and no longer run out of quarters on laundry day. Plus, my clothes smell like sunshine! And yes, you can see the umbrella on GoogleEarth. :) " Thanks, Tom!
