Fortunately, Congress has yet to regulate DC’s use of clothes lines, and they come in all sorts of styles. I have a collapsible drying rack with lots of bars that I use inside and outside, weather depending. You can buy a couple of pulleys, hooks and some rope at your local hardware store and easily rig your own clothes line up in no time. And those retro retractable models are still out there which are perfect for our small yards that need to adapt to multiple uses (my local hardware store on the Hill carries them). I have one of those clothes lines that you find in hotels rigged up above my bathtub which is great for year round laundry. Give the dryer a break and put the sun to work!
