Using a clothesline is easier than people think, and saves 100% of the substantial energy used in a dryer. In my previous instructable on this topic, I explained how using plastic hangers can make using a clothesline as easy as using a dryer
. But at least one reader had trouble with hangers blowing off the line. I haven't had that problem, but for those of you that do here's a simple solution.
The simplest and cheapest is to use a rubber band, but I had trouble with the rubber bands breaking. The best solution I found (after experimenting with the options shown in the picture) turned out to be adding a tighter hook that grabs on the clothesline.
