In Ontario, there were a lot of subdivisions that banned outdoor clotheslines as they were being built because they were considered unsightly. But with green energy and environmental issues being brought to the forefront, those agreements have been declared null and void and if you want a clothesline, you are free to put one up as long as it is totally on your own property (not attached to a shared fence, for example).
I don't use an outdoor line, mainly because it would be a lot of work to get from my laundry room to the back yard unless I took the screen out of the window and somehow balanced the laundry basket there. I do have a rack that I use indoors, in my bedroom, for delicates and things I'm worried about shrinking. I do 4 loads of laundry at a time and usually only have 3 dryer loads, max.
I remember reading a story about clotheslines. One younger lady used hers all the time and was given grief that she put her 'unmentionables' on the line, especially in light of her older, bachelor neighbour. (He wasn't the one complaining.) She had a good relationship with him so for his 50th birthday, she made sure to hang out 50 pieces of lingerie, just for him. He thought it was hysterical.
