Things I Love Today: Indoor Laundry

Drying our laundry inside - instead of at the laundromat - has been working out. Rob rigged up an auxiliary line to go along with our new Ikea rack. We haven't put a load in the dryer in 3 weeks.

Between the sun at that window and our warm radiators, the clothes dry in a few hours. It works well on everything but towels. And I think it looks sort of pretty to boot.

Great idea! My mother just returned from Scotland and they use this form of laundering everyday. In fact, when she first arrived, every available radiator in the small home she was living in was draped with the days laundry! With the economy the way it is, we have decided as a family to hang up a close line in our basement and dry our clothes there!

I love the way my house smells when I do this, and I love that I'm helping heat my house: humid air feels warmer.

I do this, too, have have not found a good solution yet for bedsheets (and towels!). My electricity bills have been reduced tremendously!
