Having a retractable clothesline is one of the few ways to save money because you don’t have to use the dryer. It works especially well if you live in a warm and drier climate. But you may live in climates where you can’t dry your clothes outside all the time, so that’s where an indoor retractable clothesline comes in.
They come in different sizes, different lengths and are made out of durable materials. Read on to see why you should get an indoor retractable clothesline.
Benefits of having an indoor clothesline
You are not using anything to dry the clothes except for the air in the house. The clothes or other laundry just hang dry naturally on the lines, making it a great environmentally friendly option.
Because you’re not using the dryer, you will save a significant amount of money by hanging the clothes on a clothesline. This means your electrical bills will be much lower when you have a clothesline indoors.
Can be used anytime
You are not waiting for the sunny day to dry your laundry. You can use the clothesline anytime that you do laundry. It’s perfect for people who live in wetter climates.
Easy to use
It’s extremely easy to use as all you do is hang up clothes and other laundry on the clothesline.
How to install an indoor clothesline
Measure the area
The reason we say measure the area is because you’ll want to have enough room for the line to spread across the room.
Choose the hardware you’ll be installing
Whether you are using hooks or wall mounts, you’ll want to choose something that can hold at least 10 pounds of laundry as jeans, blankets and wet clothing tends to be heavy. The same applies to the actual line. You’ll want to make sure that it’s made out of heavy-duty materials to hold the weight and that it’s long enough.
Install the wall mounts or hooks
You’ll want to put it at a height that you can reach. You’ll also need screwdrivers and a hammer if doing a homemade one. If you are buying a clothesline kit, most of them have mounting accessories that you can use as well. Most people install the hooks or wall mount with them being parallel to each other.
Attach the line
If you are making a homemade one, you can attach the line on the hooks. If there are wall mounts, there should be something in them to help hold the line. Give it a test by loading laundry on it. If it sags or falls, you’ll have to adjust it. If there is little sag and doesn’t fall, you’re done!
