By now it’s clear that line-drying is something that we take seriously in our household.  With a family of 6, laundry is a daily ritual and one that is therapeutic for my husband who is the main wash-man.  He loves to be sure that there is at least one washload hanging at any point during the day in our home or in our yard.  Since it’s winter here in the Northeast, these days most of the clothes are hanging indoors, as as we’ve said before, this practice can add much needed moisture to the dry winter air inside your home.

But by far my favorite is hanging the wash outside on our Hills Rotary.  Couldn’t be easier.  Lots of wash in a small footprint.  Clothes beautifully waving while the rotary gently spins in the breeze.  When we were building our addition a few years ago, our rotary socket got covered in dirt, and try as we might, we couldn’t locate it.  During that time we hung the laundry using a simple line strung up between 3 different points in our yard.  It had to be put up and taken down on a regular basis because in order to make it convenient, it had to be close to the house.  That situation made it an obstruction in our “near” yard.  The kids had to play elsewhere and my husband or I had to be in charge of stringing and unstringing the line.  Doesn’t sound like a really big deal, right?  But with the amount of laundry we had, we needed plenty of line space.  I was completely and totally missing my Hills Rotary.  Don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone:  classic example.

Our Hills Rotary sits outside most of the year, and we’ve even had wash dry on it earlier this January.  But now we’re back to drying inside on our Hills Portable Clothesline or one of the space-saving Drying Racks.  They truly do make getting the laundry done less of a chore!

Balancing Act

This may seem like a no-brainer, but it’s important to mention nonetheless.  I’m sure most of our readers are aware of the fact that balance plays an important role in wash hanging.  If you string a single line across your yard, you wouldn’t necessarily hang the heaviest items in the middle, where the sag would overwhelm the line, although  the good old clothes “prop” poles do the trick.  The same “balancing act” goes for any clothesline that you may use.

There are unique features to the Hills Clotheslines that others just don’t offer.  We at Breeze Dryer are proud to claim them.  One good example is the spinning of the rotary in the breeze; it is not only lovely and calming to watch (can you tell how much I enjoy this?), but helps the clothes dry quicker.  Read the rest of this entry »

There have been a lot of changes showing up on our website, www.breezedryer.com, lately.  Things look a bit different when you click on the Rotary Clotheslines link on the left side of the page… there are so many new products with different names!  It is not as confusing as it may first appear.  Hills has been working, as always, to make things easier for the customer.  Now the rotaries have more intuitive names, like the Rotary 6, Rotary 7 and Rotary 8, each telling you how many lines per side that particular rotary has.  The Rotary 6 now replaces the Rotary 400 (with 6 lines/side), the Rotary 7 replaces the Rotary 450 and the Rotary 8 replaces the Rotary 500.

Rest assured that any parts you may need for your Hills clothesline will still be available to you, whether you have a 10 year old clothesline or a 3 year old clothesline.   You may not have noticed the pictures on the website of the rigors these products go through before they are sold.  The clotheslines are tested in numerous ways to ensure they stand up to Hills quality standards.

It keeps going and going...Weight (126lbs/57kg!) on the inner lines of a rotary during quality testing.

As always, if you have questions, we are here to help.  Call us (877-794-0379/215-794-0379) or e-mail us at info@breezedryer.com and we’ll be happy to assist with any questions you may have.

Enjoy this weather!  So perfect for line-drying…give your dryer a vacation and let mother nature’s warm breezes dry your clothes.
