Clotheslines for Valentines

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!

Clotheslines are an amazing way to save money and energy for laundry purposes and contribute to a greener lifestyle. If you have your clothesline at home and use it to dry laundry, why not use it and the accompanying accessories for other creative purposes? Now you can incorporate your old clotheslines and clothespins into your Valentine’s Day Festivities and present ideas.

Celebrate Valentine’s Day by using your clothesline and clothespins to decorate the house. When your kids bring home all of their valentines from school or you collect Valentine’s cards from friends and family, they can be showcased by hanging them on a clothesline. If its nice outside, you can even use a clothesline as the center of the party and hang Valentines or cut out hearts from the lines.
