Thanks for posting the link. I just wanted to encourage anyone who's thinking about it to *try* using a clothesline instead of your dryer. Our clothes dry faster on the clothesline during the summer than they would in the dryer - honestly! We call it our solar dryer. And it's not difficult to get used to.

In the past when I used a clothesline, the clothes dried "stiff". If you use fabric softener in the wash, does that help?

yes, they are more stiff, and yes, fabric softener helps. vinegar in lieu of fabric softener works as well. But they're still stiff. You do have to say goodbye to fluffy towels!

Regarding stiff and crunchy towels when they are dried on the clothesline: I've had good luck drying clothes until they are "damp dry" before putting them on the clothesline. This fluffs them up, gets out most of the wrinkles and cuts drying time way down. It also reduces shrinkage for knits. This technique works especially well on heavy clothes like jeans and thick towels and bathmats.

After a while, you won't even remember you ever had softer towels. And you'll like the way your clothes hold their color and shape. :-) Dryers are really hard on clothing. the summer sun in Texas dries clothes faster than a dryer can.

I thought clothes lines were against the POA rules in Mueller. I am very much in favor of line drying..........Melanie

We live sandwiched somewhere in the middle of a row of townhouses and nobody can see our 7 feet of back yard between the house and the garage so I'm not worried about it. Your situation may be very different.

I don't use a traditional clothes line, either. I use a foldable drying rack I got at Ikea, it's really handy for small spaces. I would include a link but looks like they've upgraded their drying rack selection since I bought the one we have.

it was my understanding that clothes lines, visible or otherwise, are not prohibited by the POA. they are prohibited by many HOAs, true, but Mueller, striving for sustainable practices, is a bit different.

I did just look over the current Residential Rules and Regulations from http://www.muelleraustinonline.com and although I looked over them quickly, I didn't see anything about clothes lines. I guess I can't say for sure without asking Alliance, but I think line drying is just fine.
