One of my "big" expenditures with our rebate was to buy this $49 parallel clothes dryer. I used to have to ropes strung on the back porch, but that was pre-BigDumbDog. We put a piece of lattice up for privacy in that spot anyway.
Yesterday was 94 degrees, and I didn't want to run the electric dryer (although I did to dry the comforter which was covered in Callie's fur). The dryer hasn't been put in the ground yet. So my ingenius idea was to fill a bucket with rocks around the base part, then add water for even more weight, and then lean it up against the house so it couldn't fall over.
It is way too high for me right now, but will be perfect once in the ground. This is the South side of our home, and there is a hedge between us and the neighbors to the South, and the tree and trailer help block the view from the street.
It worked, though. The clothes were dry extremely fast and I had two loads dry before abandoning the laundry for the day. Now it's time to head back out with a new load.
