I love the fresh smell of clothes hung outside to dry. Nothing beats sunshine and fresh air for zapping odors, killing any germs or bacteria that remain through washing, and just plain soothing the soul with that wonderful ozone spring-like smell. Whenever we’ve aired our bedding outside, the whole house seems to be filled with the scent of fresh air as soon as the bedding is brought back in. When you don’t have room to string a line across the yard between two poles, an Umbrella Clothes Dryer like this one from Gaiam is the space saving, energy saving way to go!
This Umbrella Clothes Dryer is perfect even for small yards where a permanent fixture is not an option. That’s because this dryer is designed with a permanent ground box that allows you to completely fold up and remove the pole. This is a rather ingenious solution for neighborhoods where permanent fixtures such as laundry poles aren’t allowed. The pole also adjusts from 4′ to 6′ tall; lower the height and get the kids’ help too!
Gaiam is generously giving one dkMommy Spot reader their own Umbrella Clothes Dryer ($169 retail). And what perfect timing – with the economic times being what they are, this unit can help cut back on your electric bill since running an electric clothes dryer can be quite an expense.
