The indoor powered clothes line.

If I put clothes on the clothes line in the summer during the day with a breeze shirts dry in like 20 minutes.
During fall/winter and at night not so much.
I told my wife would wash and dry her shirt for work.
But I didn't.
It was washed, but still wet.
So I took the shirt hung it over my kids little trampoline. Just hanging there wasn't doing anything.
Then I tuned on the high volume air filter, that just made the fabric cold.
Then I took the 10,000btu propane heater and 40lb tank and had the radiance from the heater pointed to the shirt and the high volume air filter blowing over the propane heater directing the heat rising off the heater also on the shirt. That was working.
Setup and testing had the shirt dry in about 20 minutes.
