In the good old days, folks used a wringer to get the majority of the water out of the clothes before hanging them on the line. Well let me tell you, even using a ringer (not a fun task), the clothes still came out dripping. Have you ever used a salad spinner? Now there is an idea. Spin the water out of the clothes, and they will dry a lot faster on the line, indoors or out. Homeless Dave gave this idea a lot of thought, and connected a bicycle to a broken washing machine (free on Craig’s List). Read his excellent DIY article at http://homelessdave.com/hdwashingman.htm.
