Clothes being stolen from a clothesline

A clothesline was a piece of rope on which clothing and other laundry could be hung to dry.

While practical, it often left the articles of clothing vulnerable to theft. In 1957, T'Mir and Mestral stole clothing off a clothesline to disguise themselves so they could blend in with Humans. (ENT: "Carbon Creek")

Clotheslines were also used by Bajorans. In 2368, somebody had strung up a clothesline at the Valo II refugee camp. (TNG: "Ensign Ro")
