Setting up a clothesline is a great way to save on energy. Electric or gas clothes dryers consume energy, and the heat emitted into your home even with a properly ventilated dryer can create additional work for your air conditioning system in the summer months.
Clotheslines of many kinds can be found at nearly any home improvement store. Some can be hung from inside or outside walls, and others are set into holes in the ground outdoors.
There are even creative ways to install a clothesline in an apartment or rented property. No need to dig a big hole in the ground!

In a home with a yard or patio, but without the option to dig a big hole (such as in a rented property), a freestanding collapsible clothesline can be set inside an outdoor patio umbrella stand.
