ANOTHER wet week is forecast. How are you managing your washing on these soggy days? We've never owned a drier – by choice. I teeter occasionally, especially during weeks like this. There are five in our household and the teens produce a LOT of washing. We have washing lines strung up under the veranda and a clothes horse inside. I hate having washing inside. It makes the house feel damp - as if it isn’t wet enough.

  1. I succumbed to the drier on Sunday. I do at least try to hang everything on clothes horses until nearly dry first, and then just finish them off if I need them in a hurry.

  2. I gave in on the drier a few years ago and I have to say it definitely saved my sanity. Before that I was a clothes horse girl. One house where we had heating ducts in the floor I used to put the heater up high for a while and drape undies and tees all over them Makes for very quick drying!

  3. We do clothes inside on a clothes horse thingy but then there are only 2 of us so it's not too bad.

  5. Our dryer broke last year and since then we've made do with the clothes line outside on fair days and the clothes horse inside on wet days. There are 5 of us and we seem to do pretty well. We 'could' have our dryer fixed, it would cost us about 50 bucks but it's obviously not yet something we feel we need to do.

  6. oh dear i am a guilty dryer user this time of year. i still hang out all the denims and towels and slow to dry stuff and just churn through the cottony clothes. it is a very satisfying vice i must admit. baxter is in a wetting his pants mode and winter in a wetting the bed mode so i don't know how i'd do without it.

  8. We've got a mini washing line AND we go to the laundromat too. How wet is it? I supose none of it's falling in the Waragamba (spelling?) *sigh*. They really need to build a catchment along the coast here - I see gallons of water flowing down the streets in weather like this...

  9. We weakened and got a dryer eariler this year. I felt guilty when I was in the store - like being caught buying junk food for your child or porn or something.

    I am afraid it gets used more than it should... But its super efficient (mmm).

    I had enough after a favourite shirt went mouldy hanging on the line too long.
