Laundry Made Easy for Campers

Most people travelling and camping can't stand doing the laundry or avoid it altogether. A cord strung between trees is a common way to dry clothes. However, a new product called Handy Line has been designed to make the drying and airing of clothes and camping gear much easier. 

Unlike other products, the Handy Line is a tough yet lightweight clothes line that can handle big loads, is simple to operate, and if it rains, can be moved quickly undercover, clothes and all. And importantly, a compact design allows the Handy Line to be stored neatly in most caravans, 4WD and other vehicles. Forget the usual laundry hassles by bringing a weather-resistant Handy Line on your next trip. For more information about this innovative outdoors product click here.
