    Another ?. How come nobody hangs out clothes anymore. I grew up with a clothe line at home, I still hang out weather permitting. US is a energy hog.

    Some of those communities with covenants actually won't let you hang your laundry out--that being said, us wood burners would probably be banned, too.

    I don't hang mine outside, the birds "decorate" the clothes too much.<> What I do is tumble the clothes in the drying for a few minutes, then transfer them either straight to hangers, or to a clothesline I have strung in the basement. They dry nice and wrinkle-free. Some things like socks and sheets and underwear and such go straight to the line.

    We hang ours out all the time ! The dryer is an electricity pig and doesn't smell half as good in my opinion.

    We hang our clothes on racks indoors to dry. Too many allergy sufferers in the family to hang outdoors.

    I agree in the summer time, all the clothes go out on the line, helps save a little electricity.

    Once upon a time, humidity was only part of the summer in the Midatlantic, not the norm. There were days when I hung out the wash to dry and by the time I got to the end of the line, I could start back at the beginning and take it down.:)

    Haven't used the dryer in a few years. We hang clothes on a clothes line in the basement and adjacent mudroom. Helps add a little moisture to the house which is a good thing here. Noticed a big dip in the electric bill when we switched to this method. Towels were the hard part but we found some quick dry towels and they are soft even when line dried inside.
