line drying clothes
Could also be titled 'Line Drying Washing' or 'Line Drying Laundry' - all are essentially the same thing :)
To my Aussie readers which is the majority this may seem like an odd post but did you know that in America some places have ordinances that will not allow you to erect clotheslines?? In some cases because they are not aesthetically pleasing! When I first heard this I was stunned it is something we just take for granted here in Australia and essentially accept as a given there will be a clothesline on any property. I personally would see lack of clothes line as an inconvenience as I'm sure would others who have lived their whole lives here :)
Where I live we have quite distinct seasons winter mornings are often frosty and drying time is much longer especially on days that are grey and have an absence of wind. There are a few differences in the way I hang things during winter which are using only one peg on undergarments, increasing the spacing between items and hanging socks singularly rather than as a pair with one peg. I almost always hang pants, contrary to popular direction, by the lower leg allowing the waistbands and pocket area at the top to hang low and get more exposure for quicker drying.
There are times in winter when I fall back on my dryer. Though these are only usually in extended periods of rain, occasionally I do fall back for convenience but really prefer to harness the free natural resource drying method if I can.
I wash most days - 6 out of 7 I guess though I don't wash by a Schedule of a particular colour or item on particular days except in the case of towels and face washers which are always washed on Fridays after swimming lessons. In Summer its much quicker and easier and I can hang what and where I like. The drying time is drastically reduced and guaranteed. In Winter if I see a forecast for a warmer day and the sun is out early I'm washing sheets; Which is what I am doing today. : )
Right on Cue my machine starts beeping so out into the fresh air I head.
Happy Monday to you guys!
