Dryer or Clothesline?
Do you use a dryer to dry your clothes, or do you like to hang them in the fresh outdoors?
Both. I like the soft feel of towels out of the dryer, but I would gladly hang everything else out in the fresh air.
The problem in Paris where I live is that the air isn't so fresh, it's cold and rainy most of the time, and it isn't Naples, i.e. you aren't allowed to hang clothes out your apartment window! Here I hang up my husband's shirts and my delicates on a bar in a convenient recess in the bathroom where they can dry relatively out of sight, but everything else goes in the machine.
As soon as I go to the country on holiday I hang everything outside and delect in rolling around in crisp sun-dried sheets. Looking back, I can't believe that living in sunny Southern California I ever machine dried laundry!
How about you, Cloverleaffarm?
I love the smell of clothes off the clothesline, but not the bugs and what the birds leave behind on them! So for me, it's dryer all the time!
I honestly have never had the bird thing happen. I've been hanging clothes out for 30 years, (before that my Mom did it) and I luckily have missed out on that. Bugs, yeah, I get those. But I just toss them off.
Hang them out in the fresh air. They smell so good. In the winter time I hang them on hangers to dry, have a rod to hang them on in my boot room, it makes the house smell good while adding moisture to the air. We heat with a outdoor wood furnace. It also saves a lot of money on our electric bill.

My dog is driving me mad, the past two weeks she's started pulling the washing off the line and dragging it all over the garden. Any tips on what I can do to stop her?
