This time of year is commonly referred to as “the most wonderful time of the year”.  Not so for many of the clothing articles that we have to work into our daily wardrobe.  Colder weather means lots of sweaters and bundling up with soft, fuzzy items that haven’t seen the light of day for months.  Many of us have a favorite piece, either because it’s been given to us by someone special or it holds special meaning in other ways, and it’s important to take care of these “delicates”.  Whether these items are super expensive or more reasonably priced does not affect their personal value to the individual.

Using a mechanical dryer can do damage to our most treasured items, and even those not-so-treasured (those we may not care about as much)…the excessive heat can dry out elastic, break down fibers and shrink items that we would like to use for years to come.  Did you know that the lint that collects and needs to be removed from the dryer filter is composed of broken down fibers from your clothes?!  A simple way to combat this and preserve the life of your clothing is by using a drying rack to dry delicates and those special sweaters, be they cashmere or not.

The Hills Trident 3 Clothes Rack has 3 tiers to save floor space, combining height and lots of drying area with a small footprint.  These are perfect not only for apartments, but for anyone, anywhere who’d like to be gentle to those items that can’t go into the dryer (hint, hint:  in the laundry room, the bathroom, anywhere!).

Click here for a video about how best to wash a cashmere sweater at home.  Though a mesh drying rack is recommended in this video, a rack like this needs counter space to dry…a Hills drying rack can accommodate not only this sweater but other items as well, without eating up valuable counter space.  One level of the 3 Tier can be dedicated to a single sweater and the remaining levels used to dry other items. Drape your clothes over the “lines” or use pegs to hang and decrease drying time, whichever you prefer.  (It is preferable to dry sweaters flat to decrease on stretching the fabric.)  Our drying racks also have specially designed lines, thin enough to accommodate pegs to hang the wash, but durable enough to handle even the wettest pair of jeans.

Check out the Hills 3 Tier, currently on SALE!, and some of our other fantastic racks at www.breezedryer.com.

Today is Earth Day, 2013, and this day has held a bit less significance for us each year.  This may sound unbelievable, but it’s not that difficult to understand why:  we try to live our lives this way EVERY DAY.  For our family, Earth Day is something we are very grateful for, that this is recognized and celebrated by so many.  We just try to be sure that we live our lives as “green” as we are able.  The children are very involved and though we are not always perfect, no one is, we give it our best shot.  Line-drying, recycling, composting, organic gardening, it is all good.

Using a clothesline has allowed us to cut back our energy bill by an significant amount.  Given that we have 6 people in our family, it would be very easy to run multiple dryer loads a day.  We have not touched the dryer in probably 5 years.  Our younger children don’t even really know where it is located in the house.  I store some of our pantry items in the basement near it, and if I say “could you please go down and get this for Mommy, it’s near the dryer”, they give me a confused look until I explain further.  It is not the best landmark to use in our basement.

Our clothesline is in use most days during the week, and we can get an incredible amount of wash dried in one afternoon.  My personal favorite is our rotary because I don’t have to lug the laundry basket along the line and then can watch the clothes peacefully spinning in the breeze.  When the weather doesn’t cooperate, we go indoors and use one of our other Hills lines like the Portable 170 or Trilogy Airer.  It all makes a big difference, the little things.  Line drying may seem like something that is just too difficult and too much of a time waster.  It may seem like something a person can’t imagine doing, we’ve moved beyond this, and don’t need to use these things our grandparents used.

But remember, it is the little things, people making small changes that can add up to big changes.  Line-drying is retro.  It isn’t only good for your clothes, but for your spirit and the planet as well.   With a Hills product, you can also know that it will bring you many, many years of use, and add sustainability to it’s list of pros.  It’s truly not that difficult to make Earth Day every day.

Posted by Gayle | Posted in Drying Racks, Line-Drying, What's New | Posted on 05-11-2012

A few months back, Breeze Dryer sold out of one of our most popular products, the Expanding Indoor Clothesline.  This drying rack was terrific for use in small spaces or where portability and sturdiness were requirements.  Hills, as always, looks at their products and determines how they can make them better; their quality is unsurpassed.  There may be products out there that LOOK like the Hills products, like the Expanding Indoor Clothesline (EIC), but they are NOT.

Hills has replaced the EIC with the Simplicity Plus Clothesline (Product #FD209433).  So for anyone disappointed that the EIC is no longer available…no worries!  The Simplicity Plus  is here to take its place; it is just as sturdy, yet lightweight and easy to maneuver, as the original version.

We are proud of our customer service record, and strive to give people a sustainable alternative to electric/gas dryers.  Please call or e-mail with any questions or concerns you may have.
