One year ago, I set our actual first measurable homesteading goal: line-drying all of our laundry.
It was pretty easy to follow, because it was all or nothing when we decided to sell our dryer.
It started with the cloth diapers. (Hey! Maybe that was my first measurable goal: full-time cloth diapers.) Hanging them in the sun was the best way to remove stains. Then the baby clothes joined the diapers, because they were so cute hanging out on the line. The adult clothes joined the baby things, off and on.
When we moved to Franklinton, after 2 years of partial line-drying, we made the decision to just go for it.
I can’t say that I’ve regretted it. It saves money, looks quaint and makes me take time to be outside on a regular basis.
Have you tried line-drying? What has your experience been?
