i dont see why you cant just get a block of wood (like 4in x4in) and attach a hinge to the wall then attach a retractable rod that way you could push it up aganst the wall when not in use

cost like 30.00 maybe

No, I was referring to when its in use, ie., full of clothes :)

Love these ideas. :)

In the cabin, I used an extra closet rod over the backs of my dining room chais over the floor heater vent. Wouldn't recommend it tho. I was moving anyway so just needed a quick fix.

Only thing I have to add is that you can put pretty much everything on coat hangers. I use clothespins for socks and everything else usually gets draped or put the hanger hook through an opening in the clothes. When I was a teen for a short time I had closet rack space but no other place for clothes, and I hung underthings and socks too. It was weird tho.

Guess I'm very blessed ... This winter is milder than usual and I still line dry most of my laundry. At times it's bitter cold on the hands to be out there handling wet stuff, but those times there is usually a brisk wind that dries the clothes within a couple hours. It's working for me so far at least. :)

I dont think one rod would be enough room for all the clothes.

Maybe Im not picturing it right?

My wood stove is in my basement. I just have clotheslines up for if I need to dry clothes inside. Normally, about all that gets hung up is any clothing that gets soaking wet if I'm working outside in wet weather. :rolleyes:
