Hanging my Laundry Out to Dry
It’s a lovely day in the beautiful city of Toronto.
As I write this post, it is Sunday afternoon, 25C and sunny out. Absolutely. Gorgeous.
I had a whole load of household chores ahead of me. I wanted to change out my winter closet with my summer one, clean my room, and prepare for my trip to Venezuela in a few days.
One of my favourite things to do in the summers, is to hang out my clothes out in the sun to dry. Not only does this save energy, I love the scent of the outdoors on my clothes and bed sheets. Luckily, I live with some very nice people upstairs (my land lord and land lady), and they don’t mind that I use their clothes line during the weekends.
Growing up, my mom always washed our clothes and hung them out to dry in our backyard during the summers. I remember it was part of our chores to bring out the wet clothes and hang them on the clothes line. Then, once the next load is ready, we take the dried clothes inside, and hang the remaining clothes. We can usually get in a good three loads in any given day (weather permitting, of course).
I always preferred the fresh smell of sunshine on my clothes and bed sheets than the smell of laundry detergent or fabric softener. Though, Gain is a close second 😉
How about you, dear readers? Do you have the option of hanging out your clothes to dry in the summers where you live? Do you like to hang your laundry to dry outdoors?
