Every year when summertime hits, I start in with the full-on “Somewhere That’s Green”-esque daydreams in which I fantasize about what a joyous convenience it would be to have my very own non-HOA-scrutinized backyard complete with a nifty outdoor clothesline — somewhere where I could hang all of my damp clothes to dry instead of hoarding quarters for the dryers at the laundromat down the street. What low-impact domestic bliss! And then I wake up and remember that I live in a fourth-floor walk-up in Brooklyn without a backyard — or a clothesline — to call my own.
People living in small apartments lack the floor space to comfortably accommodate a laundry drying rack. Drying machines, on the other hand, use a lot of electricity and cause a significant amount of carbon dioxide to be emitted into the atmosphere. Blindry combines a window blind with a fold-down laundry drying rack function. Sunlight can be used to dry one’s laundry and floor space is left unhindered.
