OK! Price.

Did you all realize that the $204 is just for the brace end pieces, and nothing else?

I would be interested in buying one if all the parts were included.
But once you add in everything needed, its $307 before shipping :th

I sent my dad the link with a question on how we can possibly make a wooden version ourselves.

It's crazy the money they want for that thing!

I have a vision in my head on how to make one. The end pieces are wood, but it should work the same. Just not look as purty!!:D

I would certainly think that wooden pieces would work just fine.
I do think it would require an extra one in the middle though.

I was thinking that too.

Maybe on the middle piece, you could hang a round thingy with the clothespins on to hang socks and stuff! It wouldnt be the prettiest thing, but it would get the job done!

I wonder how much it costs to dry a load of clothes with an electric dryer :idunno Maybe a dollar a load?

Rough estimates are 75-92 cents per load.

Lehman's has a bunch of laundry racks:

This one is most like the one in your link.

This one is wall-mounted, and doesn't look as useful for over a wood stove.

Just for fun, this is what we have outdoors (although we got ours at Canadian Tire):

We also use a rack like this indoors during the winter months.

That is a huge savings every month then! I line dry clothes in the summer, but never really in the winter. My present goal is not to use the dryer for the month of Jan.

I got some of the Zote soap (found it in Ill. by my inlaws) and made some homemade powdered detergent. I also read that you can use it as a rinse aid. So, I tied a piece of it inside a knee high panty hose and secured it to the "rinse" compartment in my washer. It works well, and if I dont have to buy fabric softener, it works even better! ;)
