  • Anyone besides me hang out their laundry?

    I am a die hard when it comes to hanging out laundry. I just love the smell and feel of the clothes. I hang out from mid March till probably mid Nov., depending on the weather. I only use my dryer when forced by the weather. Usually work around it pretty good. I do not like to smell of my clothes when they come out of the dryer, does not matter what I use for a softener.
    Am I the only one that hangs out?
    Heritic, rebel, a thing to flount,
    He drew a circle that shut me out.
    But love and I had the wit to win,
    We drew a circle that took him in.

    What I want to know is how you keep them from getting stiff??
    I may start hanging clothes out again because dd is gone now, and she used to get itchy skin and a rash if the clothes hung outside. We live too close to corn and cotton fields.

      yes i hang clothes outside,,,you can keep them softer by adding vinegar in the rinse cycle ( i read that),,by using one of those fabric softer balls
      I'm Not Bossy, I just have better ideas

          the birds always pooped on my hung out laundry or it would alternatly smell like manure in the spring or burning leaves in the fall.

            I love to hang out, love the smell. Probably don't do it as much as i would like to.

              Since electric is very high down here I hang my clothes out as much as possible. Very seldom are my clothes stiff. I do use fabric softener in the final rinse. I have found that as long as there is a breeze the clothes will stay soft. When the air is not moving the clothes seem to stiffen up.

                Haven't hung my clothes out in many years, but do still miss that wonderful fresh smell. The only thing that I still hang outside is our feather pillows. Do try to put them out at least once a week.

                  I did when I lived in a house. Can't now that I live in an apartment. I'd love to be able to.

                    Wish I could but then living here by the stinky neighbors, my clothes might smell like dog poop and pee - ICK.

                    When I lived in the country, often birds would poop flying by, pollen would get on the clothes and dirt from the roads.

                      HECK NO!! I haven't hung clothes out in MANY years and don't intend to again. My Mom is a fanatic about hanging clothes outside. I told her it was too much time wasted, put in basket, hang up, take down, fold, put in basket, haul in house, put away or leave set in basket. I wash 'em, dry 'em, take upstairs and hang in closets or put in drawers immediately. DONE!

                      Whenever we were in Florida visiting, it was always hang them outside, as soon as we got back home, all clothes got relaundered even if they were clean. I never told her that, but I don't have to worry about that any longer since we sold their place in FLA last week.

                        I Like To Hang Out The Sheets And Pillow Cases--i Love The Smell. I Also Like To Hang Out Towels, But Don't Because They Seem To Loose Their Shape When You Hang Them--same With Shirts And Stuff. Maybe If I Could Figure Out How To Hang Them I Would Do It More.

                          I would hang my clothes if I had a clothesline that wasnt directly under trees. I have one of those wooden drying racks and I set that out in the back to dry some stuff. I always hang my bras to dry instead of putting them in the dryer. To cut back on the electric bill, I hang the towels out too until theyre just damp, then I throw them in the dryer to finish - that way theyre not crispy either.

                            I love the smell of clothes dried on the line, but I no longer have a clothesline so it's the dryer for me.

                              My neighbor's are in enough of my business, they don't need to be nosey where my laundry is concerned. lol. When I rented a place out in the country, I put up my laundry on the line anytime it was nice out, especially blankets. Now that I own a house in town, blankets go over the shower curtain. It's not as effective at all.
