Rotary clothesline

Don’t you just love the old Rotary clothesline?  Last Friday when I was cleaning up at Sewjourn I needed to get some of the hand towels and tea towels dry and I didn’t have lots of time………and there was still frost on the ground when I arrived (which wasn’t THAT early) and fog hanging in the air and the mercury hadn’t hit double figures……… my chances were pretty slim I thought.  At home on our compact fold-away clothesline which is tucked out of sight there wouldn’t have been a hope.  But to my delight (yes, small things please me!) the faithful old Rotary clothesline spun around in the breeze and in no time they were dry.

    We often have heavy frosts here in the Winter and CK’s always helpful suggestion when I moan about drying is

    ‘Hang them out overnight and let the water freeze. In the morning unpeg them and with a quick flick SNAP all the ice off and voila – clean, dry clothes.’

    Have to confess not been game enough yet 😉
