- Feb 18, 2006Hi!
I purchased an "umbrella-type" clothes pole from a local hardware store (it
was a special order). It folds up like an umbrella and lives in its box
(about 8"x8"x65") when not in use. I bought some cinder blocks (the cube shape,
not rectangular) with the single hole to support the pole. Since the pole is
smaller than the hole in the cinder block, I stuff the hole with hunks of
styrofoam to stabilize the pole. The clothespole opens up to about 48" on a
side, and has maybe 10 lines strung between the 4 support arms. I have a heavy
fabric painters' drop cloth that I put beneath the pole, and when that gets
gloppy with size or paint, it goes in the washing machine. The pole cost about
$50, the cinder blocks about $1 each, and the drop cloth about $10. Oh,
yes, and a couple of packages of clothespins!
I like this because, depending on the weather, I can put the pole up on my
deck, or in my laundry room or garage.
