This clothes drying line is very clever. It take up almost no space at all. You would never even suspect that one was hiding on your wall until you pulled it out to dry your laundry. And, then viola! one hundred and seventy feet of drying space that was never there before.

Whitney Design Retractable 5-Line Dryer
If you already practice green laundry drying but are making do with just a single laundry line as your outdoor clothes dryer, you will love this 5-line retractable clothes line. The Whitney Design Retractable 5-Line Dryer clothesline can hang up to 170 feet worth of laundry in a 34 foot space. Not only this, but when your laundry is dry and put away, you simply need to release the clothes dryer from the one end and then hide it away in the unobtrusive cover at the other end.
Retractable laundry lines make it possible to use your property in more than one way. A beautiful outdoor dining room can be transformed into an ultra green laundry room in as much time as it takes to pull out the Whitney Design 5-line Retractable clothesline and attach it at the other end. Using your environment more efficiently can lead to using our energy resources more efficiently too. And, that is what green - living is all about.
You could use this retractable clothesline as a deck clothes drying rack, or set it up on your balcony and none but you would be the wiser for it once your laundry has been taken down. You could also install this dryer in your yard, or in your carport or garage. If neighborhood rules prevent you from doing the right thing with your laundry and implement like the 5 -line retractable clothesline can make it that much easier to retreat indoors without giving up your principals. If you do find yourself in the position of needing to dry laundry indoors, adding a ventilation fan to the room and opening two oposing windows (if it is possible) can help to speed the process.
Whatever your situation, all you need to set up the Whitney Design Retractable 5-Line Dryer is 34 feet of fairly level ground, and at least one solid surface upon which to afix the permanently anchored end of the dryer. Across from this you will need either a wall, or a tree trunk, or a post which you have purposefully installed.
The Whitney Design Retractable 5-Line Dryer is very well built and has as close to a five star rating as you can get.
