Who needs a dryer anyway?

My ancient horrible clothes dryer bit the dust back in March. It still runs but will not heat. It’s definitely not worth paying to fix, and I’ve considered looking for a new or used one on Craigslist. But I decided I could get by with a clothesline, since it was early spring at the time and our snow melted early this year. My landlord was nice enough to install a retractable clothesline that I bought at the hardware store.

And I have been hanging the wash ever since. It’s definitely an adjustment, and a couple of times I’ve had to take wet wash to the laundromat to dry it there, but I rarely miss my dryer. Since it does still run as an air-dryer, I throw the line-dried towels in there for a bit to fluff them up. Otherwise they would be some scratchy.

I guess the biggest drawback is that I have to wait for a good day to do laundry. And it is a bit of work and time, but that part is kind of nice. A little extra work and a lot of FREE SUNSHINE!
