At the Windy Washline

Do you want to get some fresh air in your lungs to drive out the germs your people bring home?


 Want to get some sunshine in your eyes, some mood-boosting Vitamin D delivered without a pill?


Want to use a free bleach alternative with no chemicals?


Want your laundry to smell fresh and delicious and utterly clean?


Want to dispense with an appliance, get that square footage back, reduce your utility bill, and reduce your carbon footprint?


 And do you want to do all these things simultaneously for real super-efficiency?

Best air-dried laundry ad ever.

...and line-dried towels work better anyway!

LOVE. Although we're finding fall in Wisconsin means more allergies...which means no line drying. That is truly sad. But we do have our Amish laundry line flying high from our second-floor balcony!!

Rachel, yeah, allergies. When the pollen count is high, I keep my husband's things inside on a drying rack and put our sheets in the dryer. waaaaah.

It was snowing today. SNOWing. For reals, so I think I'll stick with the gas dryer for now. ;)

I found your link on a Facebook page - love the message and the photos. Some time ago I explored this topic on my own blog: http://plainandfancygirl.com/2013/10/03/clean-sheets-its-a-breeze/

You have better photos - ha!

Yes,lovely. This morning I hung out all my tea towels, dishcloths & bibs on the frost coated lines! We have snow here in the north so mostly I hang inside, but towels and such are better frozen, and now the sun is shining on them!

I wish I enjoyed hanging clothes out - or even enjoyed the end result. I am a wimp and have allergies and our washer is in the basement ... so into the dryer with everything. I try to make up for it in other ways :) But this is a beautiful post!
