Putting the Sun to Use
May 27, 2011 § 2 Comments
After a week of almost solid rain, the sun is out again! It’s hot at the back deck – perfect for drying laundry.
I’m all for line drying. I grew up in a line-drying household. (Yay, mom!) In fact, I think I’ve used our dryer exactly three times in the two years we’ve lived here. (Twice for at-home “dry clean” and once for actual drying.) It’s especially lovely to line dry outside in the spring and summer – your laundry smells so clean and fresh afterwards, without any yucky chemicals. (I do try and limit the time I leave our landry outside, since we’re both allergic. Bringing in too much pollen in the “clean” clothing wouldn’t do.)
I found Ashley’s indoor drying rack tips on design*sponge useful for beginning line dryers. Her beautiful photos help. 🙂
