  2. We also dry our clothes thru a clothesline at our rooftop. During Summer Days, We hang the wet clothes there and under the sun, just an hour, its all dried up! Due to the heat from the sun and the cemented roof :)

  3. I like how the clothes smell after they are dried in the wind!

  4. When I was a kid (long time ago) clotheslines were a common sight. Today they are rare to see. All the laundry is now done indoors with heated dryers. Thanks for the flash back Bill.

  17. For centuries people managed without tumble driers; now it seems they've mostly forgotten how to hang washing outside.

  19. Best way to look after clothes...hang them outside but it's easier to use the drier.

  20. I recall my mother hanging clothes outside to dry and when it rained she had to resort to hanging them in the basement, which wasn't quite the same.

  31. I'm back! I will try to check in on a regular basis. Love your new banner and have scrolled back over your recent posts. Are you living in Creeslough now? I spent two months of lockdown here in Serbia with my Irish friend who lives in a close and very green suburb. We had tons of fun.

  33. Not possible where I am, though I do have some shirts that I'll leave to dry natural, usually draped over a chair.

  34. Large house, very small clothes line.

    ReplyDelete
  35. It's more work but a more pleasing result.

    ReplyDelete
  36. We don't own a dryer, too expensive so I've always dried my washing either outside on the line or on a hanger inside, much nicer.

  37. The 2nd pic is so beautiful.

  38. Energy efficient but then it rains so much!

  39. Hanging clothes out to dry happens all over the world. Well documented.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Good clothes line one like that, always dried the clothes well.

  41. Some homeowners' associations do not allow clotheslines. Seems silly to me.

  42. Love sunshine!
    We Japanese dry clothes outside under the sunshine.
    We used bamboo stick in our mother's days , not rope.
    Now we use steel long rod. I like bamboo than steel, of course.
