One of the best ways to save energy at home is to line dry your laundry outside. Not only will it save you money, but it will also help save the environment. Another advantage is that the clothesline will not shrink clothes like the excessively high heat from a dryer can do. But, because there’s always a but, the weather can be a problem. Rain will not only slow the drying process, but it can also make your clothes dirty and smelly.

The German company Leifheit has come up with a smart solution: a rotary dryer with a canopy that protects the laundry from every shower and even the bleaching that comes from UV rays as well as dirt and dust

The LinoProtect 400 extends the outdoor drying season from spring through into autumn. This means that laundry can smell wonderfully fresh throughout most of the year. When the rotary is not in use, the arms fold in together and the lines are concealed under the cover, so it is always protected from dust and dirt.

There’s a whole lot of drying space under its huge covering. With 40 metres of line length, up to four washing machine loads can be dried in the fresh air at once. There are also eight clothes hanger holders for crease-free drying of blouses, shirts and t-shirts. The rotary is equipped with a patented ‘lift-off protection’ to ensure the dryer stays securely locked in the ground socket, even in strong winds.
