Stickin’ It To The Man!


The hydro man, that is. (Well, not our actual meter reader, he’s quite lovely). More like Stickin’ it To The Meter.

I love our Lee Valley retractable dryer racks: they hold an entire washer load each and can easily be lifted up and off with everything still clipped on if I need to move them inside before they’re dry (extra brackets are sold separately and aren’t an entire eye sore on the basement wall). So especially on bright and windy autumn days like today, I save not only money by keeping the dryer off, but I save tonnes of time as well: it takes half as long to blow dry.

Folding and putting away, sadly, remains the same!

  1. That’s great! I hang a lot of laundry to dry in the basement or on the clothesline. Hydro is so expensive, and it’s better for your clothes anyways 🙂

  2. Love this! I may have to go out and get my own. Thanks for sharing!

  3. That’s cool that it can be brought inside too! Congrats on starting your new blog!

Throw in your two cents! (I still pick up pennies)
