According to Laundry List, “80% of American households use a dryer for between 2 and 9 loads per week. Millions more use a multi-housing laundry or coin-operated laundry facility to wash and/or dry their clothes.”
Our household generates about 3 loads of laundry a week and half to 2 weeks, directly correlating to how much cooking and cleaning I do (producing tea towels and dish rags). I try to hang at least 1 of those loads to dry outside on the line. When you have weather that is 90 degrees plus, clothes dry in just the same amount of time as if they were in the dryer!
Right now I have two lines of cotton cord that I have tied to my deck railing and attached to the fence with an eye hook. We take them down regularly so we don’t run into them or when we have a fire, so they are always a bit loose. Our volunteer sunflowers from the bird seed are also growing in between them. I can only fit about 1 load at a time.
And while I was busy working outside, the lazy cats were all inside, scattered about sleeping! Its too hot out for kitties!
