I don't remember seeing any jeans on pants stretchers on the Mayberry clotheslines.  Mostly fodder for Barney's masquerade mill.

Remember when he went undercover at the bank?

Got me a solar clothes drier.  80' of clothes line rope.  While we don't use them every week, we do when the weather is fit.  Clothes smell better dried on the line.  Don't know why, they just do.

I know what you are talking about. Nothing like the smell and feel of line dried clothes. This is almost a thing of the past. You just don't see much of this any more. Cool

We have one, but the deed restrictions on my friends house forbid them. She was shocked to learn this.

Some municipalities / gated communities have revisited this issue and over turned them in the spirit of being 'green' and all.

That would make sense. I wash all the heavy bedding before winter hang it on the line. Then when we get those occasional nice days in winter I hang it out again. it smells so good.

Such a wealth of information, thanks so much, Thel. One of my earliest childhood memories was getting to shake that bottle. The sprinkler head had a cork stopper and it fit into a Co-Cola bottle.



When I was a kid, we had a Coke bottle with a sprinkler for clothes just like the one you had, Keevy.

Then, when we got married, Mrs. Tucker and I got a hold of a non-returnable glass Coke bottle, and got one of the sprinkler stoppers for it.

We also used ours when grilling over charcoal, to sprinkle when the coals would flare up from meat juices dripping on them.

I think it's still around here...will see if I can find it.
