It wasn’t meant to be “eco” or “green.” The outdoor clothesline in the picture below was the best facility available. The sun – at no charge to my parents – dried and whitened the wash. On rainy days, a line would be strung up indoors. There were always lots of wooden clothespins around for little children to paint faces on and dress up as dolls. Oh, and the clothespins were made in the USA of good American wood.
How, you ask, were the clothes washed? Tomorrow we step into the kitchen where you will see the answer.
