Hanging Out!

indigo in the breeze

Did you know today is National Hanging Out Day? I always hang my washing on the line outside, unless it is raining in which case I hang it up indoors. I do not own a tumble dryer (or “money machine” as my Nan would have referred to it!) and can’t say that my life is any the worse for it. I was astonished to read that in some places, hanging washing outdoors is prohibited for “aesthetic reasons”. That’s just bonkers. I, for one, really love to see washing hanging on a line, especially when it’s yummy indigo fabrics like in my picture above. So, save yourself some money, reduce your carbon footprint and ditch the money machine :-). Go here to check out all the reasons to hang your washing on the line.

Now if only it would stop raining!

    I didn’t know what to expect from your title “hanging out” – was it to be hanging out as hanging out with friends or hanging out as to describe how you feel when you are seriously hung over! So, back to the washing. Yes totally agree with hanging out the washing and avoiding the tumble dryer for both financial and environmental reasons which is another reason we loved Spain so much – washing was a joy! Do wish I could get my towels fluffy though 😉

    How can I comment on anything else when you have that lovely, lovely fabric pictured. It is beautiful. What are you going to do with it (apart from love it and pet it?)

  3. Beautiful fabric! WOW!! I’m going to get a wood close rack from my mom to start hang drying our clothes. I really want to get a line outside for the summer. We have the same issues as you and the rain though… Love this post!

I will reply to comments here on the blog, so please check back if you are looking for a response! I love hearing from you x
