My mother has always been a proponent of hanging clothes on a wash line to dry. Even in the middle of winter, she’d skip the drier and opt for the clothesline. She’d bring in the linen, which was frozen stiff, let it thaw and then iron it. Yes, it was a lot of work, but if you’ve never slept between freshly laundered sheets that have been dried on a clothesline, well, you haven’t lived. These days, many neighborhoods actually ban the use of clotheslines for aesthetic reasons. If their poles were as pleasing as these saguaro cactus look-a-likes from Das Ding, maybe we could change that rule. Because, not only are they lovely they are about as planet-friendly as you can get. Via.
