Finally, I have been able to start hanging the laundry outside this past week. Prior to this week, my backyard looked like a marsh after several days of rain. We have had record rain fall this spring…not conducive to hanging clothes outside to dry.
I don’t have room for a line in our backyard, so I use 2 wooden drying racks. Not the best set up, but it works for me.
I do a load of laundry every morning in the warm weather during the week. By the early afternoon, the first load is dry and I hang a second load. I throw the wet clothes in the dryer for about 5-10 minutes to ‘fluffen’(is that a word?) before I hang outside. But those minutes prevent the laundry, especially the towels from being ‘crunchy’.
Hanging clothes outside to dry makes our electric bill far more manageable when the temperature spikes and the air conditioner is turned on.
Do you hang your laundry outside to dry? Tell us about your set up in the comments.
