I tend to wait with the washing and do this because I can!

There is only me so there is not much washing to do anyway and I hate standing in the blazing 34° sun and hanging washing, so I tend to leave it for more than a week in this weather.

I have also started doing it late afternoon and hanging it out after dinner, and it is dry in the morning before the sun really hits that spot.

Does not smell quite as nice as the sun has not been on it, but having had a melanoma, am cautious about the sun after about 8 am.

Yes, but I do it either in the early morning or late afternoon, not during the hottest part of the day. We get temperatures up to 42 degree celcius some days in the summer here and you'd be mad to go out in that if you don't have to.
I don't have a line - we aren't allowed to hang clothes on our balcony

Absolutely. I am fortunate with our climate that I can do this. It is rare that we use a clothes dryer. Good clothes stay inside on hangers inside and I have an antique wall mounted contraption I hang the undies inside also.
I love the smell of washing after it has been in the sun. Especially sheets!
No, I did that once and got sun AND heat stroke as a result! On really hot days, I would hang my washing out the minute I woke up - so about 6am and bring it in before 9am. Properly dried washing is lovely but not worth risking my health for!
Yes I do.
I try to get it out as soon as possible, due to the heat and sun burning down....I use the time to also get my Vitamin D dose.
I have to be very quick each time....because I make a lot of trips to the line, in a week.
NO never. I will do my washing in the evening while still light, and bucket most of the water on the plants. My house and garden is 100% rain water so I dont wash much-lol. Then I hang out the wash and bring it in around 9 or 10 am. I only do this if I dont have to rush out the next morning. Strong sunlight absolutely wrecks clothes. I turn strong coloured items inside out also.
Not as often as I should, but would like to get more in the habit of doing so.
Yes if I have washing to do urgently

Yes I do, as long as I know I will be home to get it in as soon as it's dry and before it becomes too coarse in the heat.
Yesterday was first time have put washing out for nearly two months', due constant rain &/or showers!
Love the smell of sun-dried clothes. The wind & sun are natural 'disinfectants'.
I try to get it out early or sometimes wash in the evening and hang it out to dry overnight.
things that will fade go on a coathanger or clothes horse to dry under cover away from the sun.
Yes but I try not to leave it out all day.
Oh yes!! I find it dries in next to no time.
Only my dark wash & always turned inside out, like my mother used to do, so they don’t fade, but not sheets. We have a lot of trees hanging over our cloths line, which we can’t remove, & we get birds flying around in the trees, which were pooing on my light coloured cloths so they now hang on plastic hangers on the shower rail. All the sheets & dooner covers have to go in to the dryer, I’m afraid..
