Laundry is part of every household's routine, weekly or more than that. In some houses, it could be part of the daily routine.

What is your preferred way to dry your laundered clothes?

I have an old style hills hoist to hang them on. When I'm in a rush to get out of the house and need a particular item that is wet, or it's been raining for days with no end in sight, I use the dryer. While convenient, I find the drier doesn't do as good a job as the sunshine, and air dried clothes seem to take on a crisp freshness that my dryer can't replicate.
We put most of our laundry in the tumble drier. If it is not suitable for the drier, then we hang it on an airing rail next to the radiator.
Now that winter is here, I need my washing dry a.s.a.p.
So I now take them out of the washer, before I hang them out on the line outside, they get a blast of the high temp in my dryer...for about 6-7 minutes.
This takes all the wet out.
Then I take it all out and hang on the line...Because the days are not very hot, my washing feels a tad damp, if I don't do this, when they come in of an afternoon.
If it is raining , they get the same blast in the dryer for the same time....but then hung up on a heavy duty rail I have in our wash room.
I had it put in by my son,and is very helpful.Overnight they tend to dry a lot more, then back into the dryer, on low heat for 10 minutes....and there you have it.All done.
I do about 2 loads of washing a day, so for me I have to be able to get it all done quickly.
Oh! jonaj, that's a great deal of mucking around done! Do you have a large family to be washing twice a day? Cheers!

I just have my son and I.

But.......since buying a new washer of late, it is so wonderful my power bill has gone down big time, and I only use a third of washing detergent!
It spins so fast, washes well.....I have half my days back. :)

A clothes airer, but the clothes don't dry for several days during winter. Not the most efficient way. In summer, I hang the clothes out and they are dried within 20 minutes.
Hang them up outside in the sun and they get fresh and clean and kissed by the sun.
On the clothes' line. Sunlight kills bacteria.

Drying rack or cloths line when it's warm or even when it's not I put it in front of a heater.. Drying machine is so good when in a hurry.. But I've ruined things in dryer they always become small
I time my laundry with the best drying weather provided by nature. I gave up my energy sucking clothes dryer many, many years ago. Surprisingly despite the marketing which states that it is an essential part of a functioning household, nobody in our house has ever had to go to work or out in soaking wet clothes. Mmm maybe the marketers got it wrong??
When first married, ALL went onto outside line.

Then had kids', & all 'smalls' went into dryer, as didn't have time to hang on line. Rest outside, on line, or under back patio, hi-set home, if raining.

Nowadays, 'smalls' in dryer, rest on line outside.
If raining, all in dryer, as in low-set house. Nowhere to hang elsewhere, unfortunately.
