tumble or hang?

Normally I’m all for a tumble 😉

My condominium has regulations that disallow hanging clothes outdoors to dry.   Ashame.   I rarely, if ever, see laundry hanging outside in the USA.   I saw laundry cheerfully decorating homes in Costa Rica

Clothes dried in an open breeze smell and feel so good.   Good memories.   I persist in using a method that doesn’t rely on generating electricity.   I hang my clothes where they risk catching direct sunlight  and  breeze from a window.    Even here in the infamously rainy NW USA it is easy to dry clothes without a tumble-dryer.

Hang them!

    I think it’s just the Pac NW that doesn’t dry their clothes outside (probably because it rains so much). Everyone I knew, growing up, dried their clothes outside.

    I hate it, the feeling of line-dried towels and jeans is just awful. And my grandmother had a bad habit of washing my clothes behind my back (I hate others doing my laundry for me) and using clothespins hang them…making little peaks on the shoulders of my shirts.

    I love the feel of a freshly line dried towel. So scratchy.

    Yeah – ‘soft’ clothes is definitiely a priority over environment friendliness. You’re in America now girl, get with the ‘me first’ and ‘I’m worth it’ attitude.  Sod any tokens to eco-friendliness,  however trivial.
