I have a clothes line in the garage which is right next to our laundry room so I do hang up all my shirts and anything I don't want to shrink.

i would love to air dry my clothes, but living in
an apartment definitely has its downfalls... that
being one of 'em.

i also remember my mom using the clothesline
in our backyard. i'm looking forward to having
my own backyard someday so that i can do the
same! even just for nostalgic reasons  :heart:

My grandmother always dryed her clothes on the line when I was little. I recently moved into a house and i have been thinking about putting up a line because its too hot to run the dryer in the summer. Plus I love the smell of clothes dryed in teh sun! Oh how it brings back so many memories from childhood!

I have no place to hang a line, unless I hang them over the balcony of the deck. I also remember hanging clothes out on the line when I was a kid. The clothes did smell clean and fresh. That smell is not possible with a washer and dryer. The sun is known to kill certain harmful bacteria on clothes also when hung out to dry. I've hung out quilts when I was growing up in the hot sun, and it would "purify" them and make them smell fresh, without washing them.

I've hauled my laundry to the laundromat a few times in my life, so it makes me thankful for my washer and dryer in my house.

I had a clothes line out but my neighbor feeds the birds and they are always swooping down and crapping in the yard, so I stick to using the dryer!

My mom feeds the birds, and I wouldn't dream of hanging my clothes outside with them doing their business anywhere and everywhere.  It would make life easier, but like you I'll stick with the dryer :)

I used to, but not anymore, my clothesline is messed up, it keeps hanging so low... the ground just doesn't hold the poles...it even has cement. Always  loosen.

I'm lucky and mom does alot of the laundry, but when it's nice out and the wind is blowing we normally hang them out on the line.

My neighbor still does.  I had a clothes line years ago but got tired of it being used to process deer.
Have a wonderful day!

I always hung out clothes when it was warm, but I now live where we are not allowed to have a clothes line.  I miss the fresh smelling clothes, especially the sheets after they have been hanging in the sun.

We used to have a clothes line. I do miss hanging out the clothes. But we have a lot of farmers here, so we don't use a clothes line. If I lives in an area without farmers, I definitely would use a clothesline.  :)
