Re: clotheslines

Reported in today's paper: study confirms that use of a dryer 
shortens clothes' life particularly when they are very wet and 
near the end of the drying cycle. Cotton and linen fibers were 
studies. Warmest settings were used.

I dry clothes indoors in Maine all winter to raise the humidity 
as well as save the fibers. Folding racks work fine. Plants love 
it too.

We used a retractable clothesline (Sears Roebuck) for years in 
Neb. but it was only for our family of 4.
