I find that one important factor of being a 100% air-drying laundress, is also being open to constant transition. I was reminded of this today while hanging my laundry outside on the clothesline; summer is on its way out. I hang my clothes in the backyard, which usually gets full sun for most of the summer. Today I noticed a sharp decrease in the angle of the sun, being in a more southerly position it casts a longer shadow in my north-facing backyard.
I’m realizing that my halcyon days of sunny summer outdoor hanging are drawing to a close. Autumn is near. Shortly I’ll have drying racks filling up my kitchen space — oh, the freedom of having all the laundry hanging outside, soon gone!
In the meantime, I’m doing sort of a hybrid air-drying thing; I’m using my drying racks outside. I position them out in the backyard where the sun is still hitting, and load ’em up. I don’t want to waste any precious sun, limited in scope that it might be. I will always find a way to air-dry!
