    If you have a latex sensitivity/allergy, you might want to consider using silicone tubing. Even with the sheathing, wet shock cord could potentially transfer the latex compounds to your clothing.


      I love this! I followed Miking's instructions with 18 feet of cord I bought at REI, and I used it on my trip to a farmhouse in rural France where I did not have the option of hanging up my laundry in the bathrooms. I almost wish I made it longer, but as it is, it suited my needs very nicely. I primarily used it to dry underwear. I did my laundry in the sink with my J.R. Liggett's shampoo bar soap. The tension within the braid allowed me to stick the fabric into it, which the braid held really well with no worry of the underwear hitting the floor. No clothespins needed.

      It cost me less than $5 and now I have the confidence to delve even more deeply into minimalist packing. Thank you so much for taking the time to post this tutorial, Miking!
