We leave out laundry out for about two to four days, every time. It gets rained on, dries, sometimes rained on again. And indeed we often comment to each other that the neighbours must be appalled. And yet, we hang, we can't be arsed to bring it in, I can't see it changing anytime soon...
I'm so glad you share my shame! I didn't have you pegged for a laundry-leaver-outer. You put up a good front! Also: coffee on Wednesday?
Everyone thinks I'm more prim and proper than I really am; I blame the eye shadow, nail polish and flat screen TV.Sent email about Wednesday (morning ok?)
We hang ours indoors but only tend to clear the drying racks when a new load needs hanging. Glad you're giving the neighbours something to gossip about :P
I think the eye shadow actually speaks to the contrary! Electric blue eyelids does not scream propriety to me, somehow.
Jdrama (may I call you JD?), I guess it's time to start hanging indoors. I'll have to rig something up though, since I don't have anyplace where it won't get all musty. And it's so tempting to put it outside when it's nice and then forget about it until mid-torrential downpour.
JD - I like the ring - do it :)
Granny K used to be a laundry hanging out nazi. Not good to give advice to pregnant daughter in law. She learnt her lesson and has yet to give me stick about living out of laundry basket on sofa. I swear the whole family just wears the same clothes on a two day cycle.
Nothing wrong with that. Laundry (and people) don't really get dirty til the third day or so anyway, I think.
i'm addicted to the dryers at the laundromat. when i do hang my laundry, it's inside (am i the only one whose clothes smell funny after hanging outside??) but i have had a suitcase out on my balcony in perfect view from the street below for at least a year and a half. who knows what the neighbors think about that!
Those dryers are toooo expensive. And I like hanging my laundry! It's soothing. Laundry is actually one of my favorite chores (if you can have a favorite chore)... but it rained again last night. The sheets are still out there.
