Now that I have line-dried two loads of laundry (minus underwear), I’ve learned a lot of things. Granted, my grandmother or mom probably could have told me these things, but I didn’t think to ask.
1. We’re gonna need more rope. One 20-foot line isn’t going to be enough. We’ve already agreed that a second line is worth the investment (that big $14 with shipping & handling).
2. Towels get really crunchy when they’re dried in the sun. At our house, bath towels, jeans, and underwear have all earned their spot in the regular drier.
3. Wet laundry is really heavy! Heaving that basket of wet clothes from the laundry room to the carport is a workout. Is this why my grandmother is strong enough to whip cream with just her own two hands and a whisk?
