This clothes dryer (photo attached) is a kit that was thrown in the trash. It’s plastic tubing with a stand at the bottom. It was intended for a liquor stand advertising a certain brand of alcohol for a sporting event. It was thrown away intact. Something told my husband to pick it up.
We tried it today as an alternate clothes dryer. The shirts and tops hung up via hangers dried very quickly.
I think it’s vital to be off the grid as much as possible; and save as much as money as you can by using alternate forms and ways of doing things.
Whole foods now sells water cisterns that are $99 each. We saw them yesterday. We’re seriously considering buying one or making one ourselves. The rain water can be trapped and reused to water plants, maybe wash clothes and take showers in an as needed situation.
We also found more chocolate, crackers, a wooden wine box, and a whole bunch of other odds and ends and vacuum cleaner. Found out the cleaner had a blown motor, but we could still salvage it for scrap metal, i.e. copper and metals.
