It is free, 100% environmentally friendly and it is always raining in England.
Oh well, did I mention that it is free?
So check out this bicycle-related Instructable that I actually use.
- Approx 20 feet of drying space.
- Design turns in the breeze to dry laundry more quickly.
- If grey clouds appear, can be carried indoors with one hand (fully laden).
- Manufactured from reclaimed materials.
- Technology utilises wind and solar energy to dry your big, animal print Dr. Pepper® Y-Fronts!
Step 1: Tools and Materials
- An old bike wheel (mine is a road bike wheel).
- Clothes line x 24 ft (min), the cheap nylon-core stuff is best.
- Cord lock x 2 (from an old jacket etc.)
- Paracord or nylon tent cord (length as required).
- Store trouser hanger, S-hook, carabiner (or similar*).
- Tools, if you need to remove spokes, tyre etc.
- Clothes pegs (US: clothespins).
Step 2: Strip and Clean the Bike Wheel
(I kept them for spares and for other projects -- like making potstands for alcohol stoves!)
2. Scrub and clean the wheel, rinse and allow to dry.
Step 3: Prepare the Clothes Line
(If you can reclaim an offcut of clothes line, you will be extremely green!)
2. Make an overhand knot at the centre.
3. Choose 2 spoke holes as a starting point, it does not matter where.
