Things I forgot .

I couldn't wait to be able to hang clothes out on the line. I was in such a hurry to do this, that I forgot a few things.

1)Never hang towels on the line. Not only will they take off the water after you shower ,but a layer of skin as well.

2) Shirts made from cotton will need ironed. If you hate ironing, use dryer.

3) Crawling into a bed made with crisp air dried sheets ( Heavenly) .

4) With dogs, I have to clean the yard before I can hang clothes.

5) Jeans don't shrink when dried on the line. 

6) My cats will try to get out as I bring in clothes.

Am I going to keep hanging clothes outside ? You Bet! I love the smell of air dried clothes. The pros so out weight the cons. I do have to confess. I rewashed my towels and dried them in the dryer. What can I say. I love my skin where it is.

  3. If you add just a little more fabric softner to the wash and only line dry until they are almost dry and finish off in the dryer u can still get the air dried smell in your towels.

    1. I think it looks pretty too. I do try to hide my unmentionable in the middle of the clothes line. There's somethings a girl just need to keep private. HA HA.

  5. I hang everything on the line...but I do fluff the towels in the dryer for about 10 minutes when I bring them in. That helps take care of the "abrasive" quality! We haven't been able to line dry yet because of the high pollen counts....but its a comin'.

      We do use the dryer for the jeans and towels after they are lined dry for about 10 minutes. Helps soften them up.
      Enjoyed visiting your blog!

  8. I love hanging on the line and can't wait for hubby to put up a clothesline for me now that we have a yard to put one in. I have learned, though, to hang colored t-shirts inside out. If not the sun will fade the color. Or at least here in the deep south it will, lol.
