Old-fashioned clothesline. I can remember helping my grandma. Handing her clothes from the basket, cause I was too short to hang them! Twisting from horses mane blowing, to clothes blowing in the wind.
Use old towels to make this huge beach blanket. Add a vinyl tablecloth to the back: blocks sand, doubles as tablecloth. Road trip must-have. To be able to machine wash the blanket, I would use Velcro to attach the tablecloth to the towel/blanket.
