Hanging your laundry?

I liked this article in the NY Time today:

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/31/nyregion/31clothesline.html?_r=1&partner=rss&emc=rss

The thing that made me suddenly appreciate Colorado though was the paragraph
where they say it takes the sun 5 hours to do what the clothes dryer can do
in 45. Here in Colorado, with our bright sun and low humidity, I'm often
bringing in some of the thinner clothes that I hung up first and are already
dry by the time I finish hanging the rest of the clothing! It rarely takes
more than 45 minutes to dry anything other than jeans here.

Who hangs out their laundry to dry rather than using a clothes dryer when
possible? I do as much as I can, and even recently got one of these for the
bathroom:

http://www.laundrymaid.co.uk/

Joe laughed when I bought it. Said his Mum had one hangling in the lounge
(living room) in their house in Dundee when he was growing up. Since ours
is in the bathroom, hanging over the bath tub itself he doesn't object. On
days when it's not loaded up with clothing (which will be most of the
summer!), it just acts as a spot for hanging plants <heehee>

I haven't used a clothes drier in 15 years. No room for it.

I do. My denims dry faster in the sun AND things just smell fresher.
Like you, I live in a very dry climate which helps a lot.

Re: Hanging your laundry?

One of the things that's great about my new digs is the clothesline. I
plan to use the dryer as little as possible!

Me. We do not even have a clothes dryer. Another good use is to get white
linen naturally bleached 😉

I would think that a clothes dryer would actually be worse for
allergies....

Maybe for some people, but I'm allergic to everything OUTside.

I do, I do! Nothing better smelling than laundry fresh off the line. Even
if I had to use a wringer washer first. 🙂

Blankets all get hung out during the summer to help get the "wet dog" smell
out from the winter months. Works better than Bounce w/Fabreeze.

Yep - nothing like Mother Nature to put some solar energy into smell
abatement 🙂

Why? It's just hot air blowing through the fabric. I prefer the dryer,
because I'm slightly allergic to dust (or something in the dust)

Me. Well, my wife does. We've got a Brabantia WallFix system
and it's brilliant. http://www.brabantia.com/Flash/#/page/1/-/en/
