    • and are prepared to pay the cost – both in $ and to the environment. Hang neatly, pulling out creases and then as Anne Mitchell suggests “iron at the line”. Most clothes don’t need ironing – after all they crease up again as soon as you wear them. 🙂

  2. Better still…….”iron at the line”. Fold clothes as you unpeg them. Many items then do not need ironing and those that do are much easier to iron.

    • My sister was fussy about pegging out the washing. When she bought pegs she threw out all the red one. All clothes faced away from her. Sheet ends were folded up and pegged on the next wire line. She also ironed everything.
      My other sister put all clothes on hangers. She never ironed anything. Me, no system, just get them out there and get them back in and iron what you have to and fold the rest and put them away.

    • Mary Campagnolo Sounds like first sister had a bit of a problem. However, I understand her completely in the hanging out. My former husband would sometimes hang the laundry out….well, not so much hang it out as decorate the clothesline. I would hang socks in pairs, underwear on the inner lines and work out by size. He would pick up one sock, survey the clothesline and peg it anywhere. Same with the next item which could be a towel. Took him ages.

    • Sorry mate. Most of us are of the original women’s libbers. You just might have to just grab something off th line if you want to wear it. Good job having done the washing though.

  3. Most of mine is folded at the line and for the few items that may need a press,well as Crista Calderon says , quite therapeutic.

  4. That sounds dangerous putting ice cubes in the dryer,after all it’s the same as putting water in your dryer.
