While I do not have huge areas to declutter or sort out there are always ongoing jobs to do. Some are so small that they are barely noticeable but 5 minutes can literally make the difference.
My clothesline is 5 parallel lines under the verandah. Every few months I wipe down 4 of the lines with a damp cloth to remove any dust and grime. The last line does not get done because I have 12 hanger holders positioned along the line.
Yesterday I took the hooks off because I was washing a couple of sets of sheets and needed the extra hanging space. I realised the hooks were very grubby and the line was filthy. I wiped the line thoroughly before I hung the white sheet on it and then washed the hooks. A quick soak in some warm, soapy water then scrubbed with an old nail brush before I spread them out to dry.
Once the sheet was dry I replaced them on the line and hung out the next load which included plenty of items to dry on hangers.
A few minutes well spent to keep everything in working order.
