How to Put a New Clothesline Cord in your Lawn

Posted by Amelia Owens on

Home is a place of warmth which is typically associated with certain sights, sounds and smells. And one such visual is the sight of cleanly washed clothes flapping with gay abandon on a clothesline. And this is irrespective of technological advances or geographic locations. The only difference would be the kind of clothing on the clothes line will differ. Be informed of the wonderful ways in which you can benefit from a clothesline and how you need to go about it.

Locate the ideal place for the clothesline

The clothesline needs to be installed in a location that is free from smoke, or directly under trees with small fruits. If you plan to have a barbeque pit or any outdoor activity that involves smoke or any substance, the clothesline needs to be away from it. Similarly, if there are trees small fruits might keep falling, then it would be a good idea to move it away from the path of the falling fruits. Install the clothesline in a nice and open space where there is sufficient sunlight and wind.

Parallel elevation for conventional clotheslines

If you plan to install a conventional clothesline, then ideally both ends of the clothesline should be on parallel elevation. This would ensure that the clothes do not slip onto each other and pile up where the elevation is lower. It should be of a height where you can easily hang up your clothes and remove them. If you have a pet that snaps at clothes, then adjust the height accordingly.

Clotheslines help to get rid of mites, dry effectively and save electricity

A clothesline helps to get your clothes fully dry and helps you to get rid of bedspreads that may be infested with mites. The clothes are also fully dried without any damp patches, thereby pre-empting chances of bad odor or wet clothes rash. A good outdoor clothesline is also an effective money saver. Those who spend a lot of money on electric dryers can save on expenses month on month.  With a one-time expense the recurring expenses can be wiped out

A clothesline can be a wonderful sight at your home. Relying on too much of technology to carry out all tasks may sometimes take the engagement and fun out of life. The way you lovingly and tenderly hang out clothes with fond memories cannot be replaced by an electrical dryer.
