Retractable clotheslines are a compact option that can either be fixed between two walls, two posts or between a wall and a post.
When used outdoors they are good options for narrow areas like down the side of a house or on a balcony If you own an apartment. If you use them under a carport or awning they also provide a good alternative to conventional outdoor washing lines when the weather isn’t great.
Pull out clotheslines also make an excellent interior clothesline and can be set up in your laundry room if you have one, your garage or even your bathroom. They are perfect if you don’t do large loads of laundry very often and don’t want a washing line out in your home or your garden all the time. Instead, they give the option of being put away when not in use, sitting neatly in the wall-mounted box. This is especially helpful if you live in a small house or flat and have the washing line in your bathroom as it won’t get in the way when you aren’t using it.
Despite their compact nature, extendable clotheslines are actually very spacious and some can hold large loads and evens sheets or towels. The Austral Retract Away 40, for example, when fully extended will hold almost as much washing as a medium-sized Rotary clothesline.
Similarly, the Hills Everyday Retracting Clothesline has a small cabinet which sits discreetly on the wall or post when not in use, but it offers a sizeable drying space which easily accommodates all sheet sizes when extended.
