When we were overseas visiting family, mum put the clothes out to dry only to bring them in frozen.

Have you ever had to 'dry' your clothes in the snow? Did they freeze and what did you do about it?

No, I've never been that daft!
If it's too cold out for clothes to dry, then I put an airer up in my hallway and drape clothes over radiators.... there's no point hanging them outside, it just prolongs the agony!
In England it would snow when I was a child living there.We never put the clothes outside, or they would end up stiff as a board.They were hung up inside the home from a wooden frame, on a rope...and it could be lowered up and down.The heat from the fire would dry them overnight.
Ah, jonaj, necessity is the 'mother of invention'! Lol!

No, I've never had to do this. I've never actually lived anywhere that experiences now.

No, we don't dry our clothes on the line.
No, I've never dried my clothes in snow.
LOL no. But I've had to try and get them dry during a cyclone!
LOL! And how did they go for you?
by Vee

No I have never had to do that!

Why on earth would you put washing out in the snow with sub zero temperatures -they would not dry!
by Finy
I don't know! LOL!
by Vee
Nope. IF lived in snow country, dryer would get plenty of use!
Yes - back home in Scotland. Sometimes, if I forgot to take the washing in, by the next morning they would be stiff as a board and you then had to thaw them out before drying them again - happy days!!!
Ah, NO I haven't had to hang cloths out in the snow, & nor have I visited anyone during a snowy winter! So I would think a cloths dryer would have to be the way to go, even if not very environmentally friendly.
