I haven’t had a dryer for a few months now. It’s been ok. But I think I’m beginning to miss it.
You see, when I moved into my new place, it had washer but no dryer hookups. That was ok because I had gotten into the habit of hanging almost all the laundry anyway.
But that was on an outdoor clothesline. The clothes dry in a matter of hours when they’re outside. Inside, it takes longer. Sometimes the jeans are still quite damp if hung overnight.
I use two indoor drying racks I got from IKEA. I love them, but sometimes I get a little tired of always having one open in the middle of the kitchen. As a decorating “piece”, it leaves something to be desired.
When the weather is nice, I put the racks on the side porch. This way the laundry dries much more quickly. But with the recent rain and stuff, I can’t hang anything outside. I would often come home from an errand to find laundry blown over the yard. I had to rewash it at that point.
Since everyone was sick last week with the vomiting thing, I had extra laundry, so there are 4 loads on indoor drying racks, over the backs of chairs and other spots.
There’s the laundry saga. When spring comes it won’t such be an issue. Another problem though, is the fact that some of my clothing is far too linty. The dryer removes a lot of that.
Even if I got a dryer, I wouldn’t use it very often, just when the laundry got overwhelming or it was raining. I also have to find some way to safely venting it indoors. I saw a device that mounts on the wall that vents the dryer into a small bowl of water that you empty out. This keeps the lint from flying around the house.
Is there a tiny little dryer that you can use for just a few items at a time? Is there such a thing? That would be cool.
Any tips from you devoted line dryers for making indoor drying a little easier?
