Thanks to a challenge from my sister-in-law, one of my Earth Day resolutions was to stop machine drying Leif's diapers (yes, he's 3 and still needs them...). Jodi promised to make me a really great clothes line to replace the really lousy and long one we'd had in the back yard for too long. He chose the wood, made some cuts and thanks to his busy schedule, it's still sitting in a pile by the shop. Faced with a full drying rack and a load of wet but clean diapers, I did what I had to do and strung up a new line. The location is not great - it's closer to the road than it is to the house, but for now it works and has kept me from having to use that energy sucking, heat producing dryer.
A few interesting laundry links:
Can you believe that line drying is banned in many places around the country?
