    How do Eskimo's get their clothes washed and dry?  Infact, anyone living in really cold, wet places.

    I've been struggling to get the washing dry because of the weather - one minute dry, next sun then snow, hail, you name it - whatever the British weather wants to throw at us...

    Here in Seattle where it is both wet and cold much of the year, most people use clothing dryers.  Absent that, hanging clothing in the warmest room of the house tends to work for many people.

    I lived in Alaska for a few years. We had washing machines and dryers. In extreme climates, it's best to wear synthetic water-wicking materials if you will be outside a lot. Coats with a water-resistant outer shell keep eskimos from getting wet. Wool (REAL [in other words, soft] wool) clothing is expensive, but wicks away water. It must be dry cleaneed only. Never wear cotton, including jeans, in wet and cold climates because it absorbs and holds water.
