Clothes line question--how far apart?

We are making a clothes line with poles and line, but need to know how far apart to put the lines. The poles are already in the ground, we just have to add the line. Google isn't really helping with this question =o/

How far apart would you say is ideal?

I have 3 lines that have about 18" between them, so 3 ft from front to back. Works well.

Re: Clothes line question--how far apart?

I just went out and measured mine for you and my strings are only 5 inches apart I thought they were wider than that. And they are too close I feel, when I use it, I tend to leave out every 2nd line, so yeah, as per the pp, I'd go with 12-18 inches between them.

Our line is a space saver type one that was here when we bought the house, it's attached to the side of the house and part of it folds down to lay flat on the side of the house and can be extended if needed. So that probably accounts for the narrow width between the strings.

Thanks ladies!! DH made them about 18" apart I think. Pollen count has been HIGH so we haven't used it except to line dry a bath mat, I was eager... Can't wait for the count to go down so I can start using it

Mine are about 8-9 inches apart, which I have been happy with.
