High & Dry

Transform tight indoor spaces with designer Russ Hornstein's ingenious, home-drying system. It saves time, money and (more of) the planet with a cord that supports four times as much clothing as conventional lines with clever loops that hang laundry sideways. Dry garments go straight from the line to your closet, energy-free. Includes instructions, one 50 foot rope, two .75" pulleys, two stainless steel hooks, one 2.5" cleat, and two screws enclosed in a bag made from upcycled t-shirt remnants. Hangers not included.

Exclusively for UncommonGoods

Applying his knack for finding solutions to cases beyond his medical practice in Malta, Chiropractic Neurologist Dr. Russ Hornstein founded the health-enhancing start-up company Einspine in 2005. His dedication to green living compelled Dr. Hornstein to design a simple, but clever indoor line dryer that maximizes space and volume by hanging clothes sideways.

"I love coming up with new ideas for living in a more environmentally-friendly way. Our townhouse in Malta is an example of off-grid living in a city," he says. In his spare time, Dr. Hornstein sculpts and develops innovative software solutions for work-related stress injuries.

Made from
rope, stainless steel, reclaimed tshirt material
Components included in the kit:
Rope - 3/16" diamond braided nylon rope (50 ft.);
Pulleys - 3/4" Rust proof zinc plated pulleys with rigid loop (one single, one double);
Hooks - Two open stainless steel hooks with wood screw thread;
Cleat - 2 1/2" rust proof zinc boat-type cleat;
Screws for cleat - Two 1 1/2" stainless steel screws;
Printed instructional insert;
all enclosed in a T Shirt bag made from remnants which would otherwise end up discarded - great for holding clothespins!

The paper instructions are 100% recycled, processed chlorine free, ancient forest friendly, and made with wind power and non-toxic toner inks. Illustrations by Elixir Design.

With prolonged exposure to water, the zinc plating may form a white, chalky oxidation but will not rust. If the pulley receives a very deep scratch and is exposed to moisture, the steel core could rust. The hardware can withstand some exposure to moisture but is recommended for indoor or sheltered outdoor use.

recycled idea


I am sure this is an old fashioned idea with "green" packaging. Nevertheless I like to drip dry my clothes so it is useful.

Love Love Love it!


I use this for drying clothes the eco way. You can also use it to hang kid's paintings to dry. I love that I can tighten it up for heavier blankets. I always have clothes that I don't dry in the dryer so now instead of having bras in the shower drying I hang them in my mudroom so no one will see them.

Pleasantly surprised on the quality & durability of the rope. It's sturdy & will be able to hold a lot of clothes & rugs or whatever you want. Easy instructions. Thought it was a little pricey at first but I needed a clothes line & took a chance. Not disappointed. Eco friendly.
