The backyard laundry line or clothes line is not a very common site across most of America, so the Aussies have taken up the challenge to help get the eco friendly message out, which seems to have been a secret in Australia for years! Laundry dryers, clotheslines and washing lines have been around in Australia for decades, with the most popular model by far being the “Hills Hoist” rotary clothesline which is found in almost every Aussies backyard.
With the climate change and global warming on the tips of everyone’s tongues, the common laundry line is finally getting the praise it deserves as one piece of household equipment that can easily be adopted and used by the everyday person.
At the present time the USA has been slow to adopt the use of natural laundry drying devices such as outdoor laundry lines as consumers in many areas battle strict covenants which ban them from using a drying line in their yards. As the momentum grows for many of these covenants to be over turned or even abolished, Australian laundry line manufactures such as Hills Hoist, Austral clothes lines and Versaline drying lines are entering the USA market to provide the very latest eco friendly products to customers throughout the USA and Canada.
Australia is the world leader in laundry line and clothes line technology and Hills clothes lines are a world renowned brand that has been around for over 60 years.
There are many styles of Australian made laundry lines now available in the USA, either through traditional bricks and mortar stores as well as a number of specialist online stores. Products include rotary lines which are for outdoor use and can hold up to 3 or 4 loads of laundry at a time, and are also adjustable in height so they can be used by people of all height ranges.
Wall mounted clotheslines that fold flat to the wall when not required are also now available as well as retractable lines that extend up to 8 metres and are only seen when you need them.
Eco friendly laundry drying lines, indoor clothes airers and drying racks can reduce your homes energy bills by around 6% almost immediately and with these new Australian lines now available throughout the USA, there is no reason why we cant all have our laundry out drying the eco friendly way in no time at all!
