Also:we have in the bathroom, a special rail made.
I had to go buy like 50 coat hangers! and we place on a very heavy duty rail up from one wall to another in the bathroom.It's made of stainless steel.You can buy these round hole-mounts, that get screwed into a wall...so it is Very sturdy.
Cost like $25 for the project all up....So if it rains, it all get's hung up.
Takes two days to really dry, but it's not in the way.
On the Hills Hoist in the backyard for most of the year. In winter the good old clothes airer gets hauled out and takes up semi permanent residence by the heater. I try to use the dryer as little as possible.
I mostly use the Hill's Hoist in the backyard. We do have a dryer, but it's expensive to use and bad for the environment so we keep it for when it's rainy or if I'm sick or something and can't keep up with the washing. I live in such a sunny place (Queensland) that it would seem mad not to make use of the weather to dry the clothes. Besides, line drying doesn't just get them dry, it gets smells out and the UV light kills germs. It's the best thing for getting stains and smells out of nappies in particular.
The sheets, doonas' & permanent press go on my Hills 5 Extendaline.
All else in the dryer. Get them out & folded immediately it finishes the cycle. No ironing needed.
Don't have the time anymore to hang the 'fiddley' clothes out.
