Response to Marsha Knatcal - I also live in an area where a full clothesline isn't possible. However I bought a folding drying rack from amazon.com and I hang clothes on it and put it in the yard right behind the house. Large racks will fit almost a whole load, and I can even drape sheets over it. I don't know if this will help you but just thought I'd suggest as it has worked well for me. I can't stand to run the dryer when the weather is nice out!
