This wiki has been updated 9 times since it was first published in October of 2018. There's nothing like the fresh scent of clothing dried outdoors to bring back those pleasant childhood memories. While most modern homes don't come with a clothesline in the backyard these days, anyone looking to reduce their energy costs could benefit from installing one of these retractable models. Plus they're easy to hide away if you want to use one in your small apartment. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.
