    I’ve been hanging out the laundry for the past couple of weeks.
    This is much better than a clothes dryer!

    We hung out laundry until I was a teenager and we got a dryer, and I think it is one of the great inventions. I hated hanging out clothes and then bringing them in stiff. I’ll take a good old dryer any day.

    I line dry our laundry. I think I may be the only one in our neighborhood who does this.

      Charlotte,when we lived in Omaha,Ne. I was the only one to line dry the laundry. Now that we’re back home in Indiana,several of my neighbors hang the laundry outside. I pre this over the clothes dryer.

    I have a laundry line, too! I live in Southern California but we do not have ahome owners association or any of that other useless stuff. Many people in my neighborhood still have their laundry lines and use them too!!

    I’ve always hung out clothes, unless it’s raining or too cold. My dad who lives with me, he still claims Monday as laundry day, and he’s 82. I think since I grew up on a farm, and my father did as well, we aren’t that much different than plain people, except for electricity. My father had no electricity when he was young, so he can relate well to the way of life for the Amish.

    I live on central Louisiana and was raised on a farm. I still live out on the country and hang our clothes out. They dry faster on the line then they do in the dryer.

      And no electric or gas resources spent to do the drying!
