Today was my first attempt at line drying clothes. While the clothesline was easy to find, (I picked up two at the Family dollar) putting them up was another story.
I attempted doing it all by myself, but it became pretty clear that I am not quite strong enough to pull the cord taut! I thought I had it, but the minute I started hanging clothes, the rope drooped so far down that the clothes were touching the ground! At this point my cords were already in several knots and I didn’t know how to loosen them again to even get them tighter. In the end I did what all daughter’s do when they need help, call Mom.
My mom used to hang dry our clothes, towels, and sheets dry when we were young so I knew she had the know-how. So out she came, helping me un-twine all my cord, and while I pulled it tight, she did the knotting.
Success at last!
