Do You Dry Washing Outside?

Ask a Question

do you hang washing out? I am a laundry addict and put laundry out even on cold days beentween rain showers if I can. Its better for the environment and I like the smell how about everyone else?

We have a heated air from Lakeland. It's very good. Costs about 2p an hour to use and heats up quickly and keeps the heat for a wee bit after switched off. They aren't cheap though

MrsCraig sounds great but does that mean you get more condensation on the windows? I’ve heard that i would have to wipe the windows every morning even though we have double glazing.

Pjran no more than the normal condensation you would get with the heating on in the winter. I wipe the window in the room where I dry the laundry maybe once every 10 days and it's only a tiny amount. I certainly don't have to wipe them every morning.

I absolutely love the smell of fresh 'outdoorsy' dried laundry. (some of the additives on the market are lovely) I have friends whose washing never sees the washing line and only gets dried in the washer/drier or tumble drier. I am tempted to get one of those low wattage airers so hopefully other may add to the topic and give recommendations.

This has just been posted and seems a lot cheaper than others I’ve seen so not as much of a big investment to give something a go over Winter

I do love the smell yet I do use the dryer when I need quick turn over for the kids and their school clothes. It is certainly all about the smell!

I live in Scotland... its rare we are able to hang our washing outside, but i tend to hang it inside and just use the tumble dryer for towels.. I find tumble dryers usually shrink my clothes and take far too long so i’d rather hang them out..

I don't hce a tumble dryer but i try where possible to get it outside on the line. If not on the airer inside, i sometimes have to go to the lauderette to get things tumble dried

mostly use the dryer for towels and fleecy type items such as dressing gowns and pyjamas, dryer seems to shrink other items 😞

I have a washing line in the garden which only gets used when the sun is out. Other than that I have two clothes horses which I use, and the radiators during the winter!

We rarely hang washing outside but we doing have drying horses and we always use those. Sometimes we get them in the airing cupboards too. Seems to work well.
