Winter and laundry
Years ago I stopped using my machine clothes dryer and started using dryer racks and rope. This happen after checking the dryer and finding my clothes were wet. After finding the issue and fixing it, I was not in the mood to use it again. This dryer is using two utilities just to dry my clothes and I want a better way to use less.
After a little work I found out the following can help speed up drying:
*Have an indoor clothesline. Above my head right now I have a 550 paracord running from one side of this room to the other. I tied a bowline to one side and hooked it to an old hanging lamp hook. The other end has a pulley on a carabiner which is on another hanging lamp hook. I do not put a lot of weight on the line because I do not want to find my clothes on the ground!
*Time. I start my laundry day early in the morning. By night time most of the clothes are dry. For big items like bed sheets I use the indoor clothesline or a shower curtain rod.
*Space for air to move and surface area. More places air can move and more surface is open to air equals faster drying times.
Last summer is was hot like over 100F for some time. I used 550 paracord, a pulley, two carabiners and hammock suspension straps to make a outdoor clothesline. I dried a pair of pants, bed sheets and towel, then I timed how long it took. About 20 minutes later they were dry. One note the clothesline was in the shade.
