Fresh air is good for everything, including laundry. In days gone by women never used dryers, but hung their clothes out in the fresh air to dry. Some countries do not even have dryers, they always hang their clothes outside.
Back in the early years up until around the late 60′s hanging the clothes out on the line was a way of life. When lives became hectic and people had less time, throwing clothes in a dryer was easier. Today, with the concern of rising electric prices and the desire to get back to a simpler lifestyle, people are again embracing the use of a clothes line.
There are many types of clotheslines for one to choose from. There are those that are round and stand on a pole and can easily blow around in the wind. These are said to dry the clothes quicker than a traditional line. Many delicate items cannot be put into a dryer, like a bedspread, and allowing them to hand dry is perfect.
Allowing the clothes to dangle in the breeze is free. It is a great way to use natural resources to allow the families clothes to dry. Nothing smells better than a loan of towels or clothes that have dried in the sunshine.
