When you wash your clothes, how do you dry them? Do you hang them on a washing line, use a dryer or use a combination of the two?

I always use the line.

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.
An indoor rail like that's a great idea. I have a clothes horse for drying a few things but it would be nice to have a bit more room to dry stuff indoors when I need to.
I get my clothes washed and dried at the local laundromat. I pick them up two days later. I don't wash and dry my clothes at home.
Is that cheaper than doing it yourself? Do you not have a washing machine & dryer?

We use the tumble drier, and then put them by the radiator for airing.
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.
Pop them on the line outside.
On the line in the sun. If wet they go under cover on a line. I don't own a drier.
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.
