Just Hanging Out: Classic Laundry Management

When we moved from Kansas to California late last month, we were without a clothes dryer for several weeks. It’s a long, boring story why that is. But, the point is that while I could clean clothes, I couldn’t dry them with the push of a button. Not a good thing when you have up to ten loads of laundry a week.
Some folks would probably head to the laundromat once a week. But, people, I’m not hauling six kids and ten loads of laundry anywhere.
Since I’m a 1-2 loads/day kind of girl, I really did not want to let things pile up, either. So, in order to roll with the punches, I went back to my roots. I did my laundry – at least the drying part of it — the way my grandmothers did it. I hung it out on a clothes line.
(That’s the view from my back door. Cool, eh? Love the palm trees.)
Anyway, laundry on the line proved to be a challenge, initially. But, I did some internet research and learned quite a few things.
So, to dry your clothes on the line can make you cool and richer. Who knew?
While we are back to having a running dryer, I have still left the clothes line up. Once I get over my bee/moth phobia, me and my clothes pins will be back in business.
