Clothesline conflict in Washington

Leave my laundry alone

A pail of clothspins that has been used for years. [Steve Ringman, The Seattle Times.]

A pail of clothspins that has been used for years. [Steve Ringman, The Seattle Times.]

I hang my clothes out every spring and summer, and that’s my quiet time, not to mention they smell so much nicer and my whites are a lot whiter without using bleach. [“Clothesline crusaders call laundry flap overblown,” page one, Aug. 14.]

The homeowners associations are being very dictatorial about what goes on in my fenced in backyard.

I would probably object if everyone hung their clothes out in the front yard, but most of the time, that’s not the case. I have had no complaints from my neighbors on either side of me.

I wouldn’t mind if Washington allowed clotheslines. Something has to be done with these overzealous homeowners associations. We pay for the homes we live in, not the associations.

Just leave my laundry alone.
