simple solution

At our last house, I made a little spot to hang towels out on the fence.

I decided we needed someplace here to hang wet towels outside after sprinklers, slip-n-slide, etc.

  So I just got some basic hooks from Target and drilled them into the deck posts.july 2010 022 2
So simple, yet I love having a place for the kids to hang up their wet towels so they can use them again tomorrow. We avoid extra laundry like the plague around here.july 2010 021 1 Have you come up with any quick, simple solutions this summer that you wish you’d thought of ages ago?

  1. That's a great idea. I have hooks right by the back door to use for towels and stuff but most of the time, the towels end up on the floor.

  3. WOw, thats so cool....I think I migt "steal" your idea....I usually just throw our towels in the dryer when we come back from the pool but this would seriously make my life 'greener'. BTW...I love your blog, its awesome!

  5. Girl, I only have three children, and I'm right there with you on the extra laundry. What a great idea to have hooks outside for these towels! You are one smart cookie. :)

  9. What a great, easy idea!! I have a drying rack set up in my family room and I am SOOOO sick of looking at it! But we swim every day so I had to do something....your ideas are so much better and so much cuter, I need to go check the yard and find a place for some hooks!

  11. Fab idea. I make sure all towels are on hooks by the back door by bedtime in summer and keep all but five put away so they don't just reach for new clean dry ones...I am only washing five a week!

  15. We installed a wooden rod on the inside of our privacy fence next to our pool to hold our towels. Beach towels are so long and take up space. The wooden rod lets us drape them over and the sun dries them very quickly. We also discovered that we can stand up our blow up floats and tuck them inside the wooden rod and it will keep the wind from blowing them away when we aren't using them! Love the double duty! -Karen

  16. That's a wonderful idea, Melissa. It would also work for families who have tiny dogs who track mud in after the rain, although I don't know anyone like that. ;) ;)

  17. Great Idea, thanks for sharing. Now I'm gonna have to borrow this idea, those towels drive me crazy after coming back from the pool.

    Take Care, Carrie { the vintage wren }

  19. Our hooks are on a 5-foot long piece of molding hung in the laundry room. We live in Utah and use it for wet towels & suits in the summer, AND wet snow pants/mittens in the winter.
