HOW TO KEEP CLOTHES CLEAN ON A CAMPING TRIP?
A camping clothesline doesn't have to be complex, but it should be practical. If using standard nylon clothesline, simply tie the ends firmly to nearby trees or posts. There are various knots that can be used to ensure the clothesline stays taut. Avoid attaching your clothes line to tents, awnings, tarps or other campsite features, as the line will sag and become an obstacle for people and vehicles.
Modern campsite conveniences include hot water washing machines, battery chargers, air compressors, inverters and other equipment for driving plumbing and electricity. In today's camping world, your campsite can have shower tents, an ensuite, washing machine, iceboxes and clothes airers. All home conveniences for keeping everyone clean and even doing a load of washing can be catered to at Anaconda, for long-term family camping fun.
WHAT CLOTHES LINE FACILITIES SHOULD MY CAMPSITE HAVE?
This will depend on your style of camping. Family-friendly campgrounds are usually outfitted with bathrooms, toilets and laundry facilities. Many campsites also have kitchens and BBQs for making culinary camping creations. The laundry facilities and clothes lines are usually adequate, although it is always worth bringing some extra travel clothesline with you. Solo hikers, trekkers and 4WD enthusiasts prefer more basic travel clothesline options for doing a load of washing. A portable clothesline is a handy camper option in Australian conditions where clothes can dry fast. A typical camping clothesline is fast to erect, easy to cover with an awning or tarp if necessary, and can hold plenty of weight in wet garments.
Along with a folding clothesline, it is a good idea to have a suitable carry bag for wet items and enough hangers or pegs to accommodate a load of washing. Whether you prefer to camp in a roof top tent, or enjoy trekking with a swag in outback Australia, lightweight travel clothesline is an essential piece of equipment. A typical campsite needs airing out from time to time, and that includes the tents, sleeping bags, tarps, awnings, carry bags, camping chairs, swags and dry bags, so it is always a good idea to carry extra travel clothesline so you can hang things up temporarily while they dry and air out.

HOW DO I DRY CLOTHES WHILE CAMPING?
Drying clothes often requires a bit more effort than washing them, more specifically setting up your clothesline or another method you are using for drying your clothes. To ensure you have everything you need, make sure you pick up a clothesline from Anaconda and at least a small box of clothes pegs.
Setting up your clothesline is relatively simple. Choose a prime location with an equal amount of sunlight and shade. Then, hang your clothesline, preferably by using tools you have brought with you. While you can use trees to hand your clothesline around, never damage the tree to put your line up.
Drying your clothes in good weather is certainly not a problem, but what do you do if it is pouring down with rain? Well, in these cases you can always use a simple tarp. Simply use the tarp to create a dedicated shelter and then mount the clothesline underneath. Some campers prefer doing this in warmer weather too, this gives them added protection if the weather were to turn unexpectedly.
We must also mention that there are some camp-friendly tools to dry your clothes. There are some manual dryers you could find useful, although they can increase the weight of your camping supplies dramatically. Ideally, you want to evaluate what you need and how much you can carry comfortably beforehand.
