Our Solar Clothes Dryer


A while back the brilliant scam artist, Steve Comisar, cleverly exploited the efficiency of line drying laundry by advertising a "Solar Powered Clothes Dryer" for only $49.95. When the suckers, er, customers, opened the eagerly awaited packages, they discovered that the "scientifically proven, space age clothes dryer" was a piece of clothesline.

A true 'sucker' if they don't do a little research on a product before spending $49.95.

There are times I've considered using a clothesline again, but with all my dogs I'm not sure I could find a safe place to hang one.

Loved it, remember it... don't have the energy anymore and there's no wind in Florida!
