Adventures in line drying, continued.
Since our dryer quit a few weeks ago, we’ve been getting along just fine without it, though my darling husband would never willingly admit that. He just shook his head at the sight of the laundry hanging out in the snow when he came home the other day. He can’t understand how I can honestly believe that laundry will dry when the temperature outside is -6 degrees celcius (20 F?). I’m here to tell you that it will.
Granted, it doesn’t dry within an hour like it will in August, but that is definitely steam coming off of that gray t-shirt (towards the middle of the “V”). I left them out for a day and 1/2 because I didn’t get them out there until the afternoon (they froze stiff as boards overnight), but by this afternoon they were pretty much dry.
A second load is hanging inside on our brand new Ecodri rack (our final pre-Compact purchase which just arrived yesterday). It’s hanging in the laundry room over the washing machine, and I think it’s going to be great. Hubby grumbled a bit about the cost, but when you consider that we won’t ever have to buy, service, or pay for the electicity to run another dryer, $100 seems like a pretty good investment. As much as he likes to tease me for subjecting him to my crunchy lifestyle, he (not so) secretly enjoys it. I know there’s a crunchy guy in there that’s crying to get out, and I’m more than happy to help!
