(Wales Online)   People are arguing over what is the correct way to hang clothes on a washing line. Judging by those dark clouds in the article picture, those clothes shouldn't even be on a line   (walesonline.co.uk) divider line

I'm not even allowed to use a clothes line where I live.  I miss it.  The clothes come out smelling fresh and the breeze takes out all the wrinkles.  And it saves electricity.

Also, the clothes in TFA are not hung up properly. Going to take forever for the pockets in the jeans to dry. You have to turn the pants inside out to dry them so the pockets get air. And the t-shirt is going to be all stretched out of shape.

yeah, yeah username etc

We use indoor drying racks - I use them for almost everything I wash. I prefer the feel of the air-dried stuff and love the drop in energy waste.

I'm sure it helps that we live in a very dry climate.

What's wrong with the dark clouds? Think of it as a free extra rinse cycle...

Absolute crap.  Just leave them out until they dry, whichever way you peg them - what's the damn hurry?  Did you wait until the only clothing you had left was a loin cloth?  Try to get more organised.

It'll be irrelevant in Wales soon enough, too bloody cold to dry clothes outside in late autumn.  Back to indoor drying racks or putting the laundry over the radiators.  Clothes driers are a last resort now that energy prices are so high.

Trivia time: The Welsh phrase for ironing board is "board smoothio".

In the UK?  Indoors, you know, where it isn't raining 90% of the time.

You hang them by your extra buggy whip and heat them with your coal-fired stove, of course!

/Then you get a clothes dryer.

All nice and well until  you realize electricity in the UK costs is like 4x the price of the US. I had a drier in the UK out in the shed but it would be very rare we would use it even in winter with the prevalent use of radiators and drying racks. You'll just save bedding for a dry windy day then.

I bet your dog can't walk without a leash either.  That's not a world I want to live in.

I wash them in a regular washer, and hang them outside, or on a clothes rack, a utensil made specially for that purpose.  In my heated house.  That is already heated, and will dry clothes.

You're correct.  I don't want to live here either.  Currently house-hunting in a less uppity neighborhood.  I don't fit in here. I hesitate to even leave my rusty truck in the driveway because it will 'ruin the resale values' in the neighborhood.
