I'll admit I use my tumble dryer through most of the summer instead of hanging out to dry. Anyone else who does this??

#5
I aint putting my bloomers on the line....so little get will pinch them for a camping trip!!
#6
Use the line when ever I can, but do the same as muckypup with towels as otherwise they end up like cardboard!

Don't own a tumble dryer and if I did I would only use it in Winter for items like bedding,towels,jeans,anything that was quite thick or large and could be tumble dried.

Have had tumble dryer in past when living in flats,shoots up the elec bill.My partner had been given it off his mum so was there before I moved in.

Waste of £100 or so buying one,and if your using it regularly,must up your elec bill by an extra £30-40 or so a quarter.

Done 2 loads today,will do some more washing tomorrow if doesn't rain.

I'll send my partner round for whoever needs line up,this him recently putting up a new line for me as my other the rope was frayed.
#16
I do feel bad doing it, but it doesn't stop me. I've got a 2 year old who loves digging and the washing line is right by where he digs- I can't move it anywhere else. So I'd end up washing everything twice if not more, and then have him screaming the house down to go outside, so I take the easy way out!! I hung out my dressing gown the other day, it's a really thick one, and he was running in and out underneath it loving putting his hands on it- the little s***!!!

lol yes,I'll send him round.
He in town at moment on his day off work getting bread etc for w/e.
He don't drive and its end of mth and we almost run out of cash so can't catch train so he'll walk!
#19
I can't believe you people who have the facility to line dry washing and CHOOSE to tumble dry!

I would LOVE to be able to line dry - I love that 'lined dry smell' - but unfortunately I live in coach house so have no garden - yet I still don't tumble dry - I use my trusty clothes horse :)
#20
I don't have a tumble dryer and live in a flat so pretty much everything ends up on a radiator or the clothes horse. I do cheat sometimes and take curtains or bedding around to my parents so it can be hung on the line there or put in the tumble dryer.
#21
Btw, this thread is for people to just be honest, I don't want anyone judging on here thank you!!!

Are you referring to my post?
#23
I dont have a tumble dryer as i am always worried they may shrink my washing and they are too expensive. I am very lazy when it comes to putting washing out on the line so i have an airer above the Rayburn and dry them that way. Trouble is there is nothing like drying them on the line to stop them being crispy
#24
True,just keep it peaceful,i like peaceful or I go off :(

Yeh thats true,you gotta be so careful with some items.
#26
nothing wrong with crispy towels....saves you paying for expensive exfoliating washes!!! LOL
#27
Talking of which my Mum never had a washing machine till 1993,then it was because it was given to her for free,she used to handwash everything,come to think of it,we never had a Video player till 1996.
No wonder when my parents got burgled a few yrs back all they took was a bottle of money with about £80 in it.

Ok thats the back trellis,which is all tied on,I think theres brackets or something,I dunno,as you can see its not me up there lol. On the other end of the line is my house back wall,he needs lean out the bedroom window to fix it on. Then the bracket on wall you loosen the rope line to bring line down,hang the washing on. Then you return to the wall,you undo the rope and pull it up and then rewind the rope around the bracket thingy. The rope wears down on the hoop it feeding through from the back wall so hence it needs replacing every yr or 2.
My partner hates it and was putting it off for wks but needed doing.

We don't have a tumble drier, wish we did though. Living near a farm the flies poo all over anything we put on the line and it all has to be washed again. I've also had clothes stained by blackberry/raspberry/strawberry bird poo. Oh the joys of the countryside!

Nice!
#32
Mind you we should be lucky where we live,we never had anything nicked off the washing line as of yet.

Round my Mums rd stuff always getting nicked off lines,if we staying round there for w/e and somehting decent being washed and is on the line,we keep a close eye on it,you def couldn't just go out,cos you come back and it be gone.

A few doors up from my Mums this guy he said he had jeans nicked off his line,and he come knocking on the door and said my jeans been nicked and I can see from my garden you got jeans on line.They were my partners and he is rather slim.while this guy up the rd must been about 36" waist.What accussations.
#33
3 loads today - all towels and bedding. All been out drying and airing and getting a good dose of UV. Just going to get them in now, but - as above - always risks in the countryside!!
#34
I still love the countryside and where I live though. Bird poo 'n' all!
#35
I always use my washing line when it's dry or the clothes horse when it's wet, I put the clothes into the dryer for 10 minutes to fluff them up. :)
#36
Again I line dry as much as possible, only using dryer for towels and items that are urgent. The electricity bill is so high anyway if we used the drier for everything, I think we would have to give up food etc!! I have washed six loads today and still have two or three more so the dryer would probably throw itself out of the window to surrender..:-D
#37
line dry when its nice, smallson radiator to air, lol, i got 5 kids, too expensive with the tumble dryer every day, i cant wait for summer to bring my leccy bill down. lol:thumbsup:
#38
i use the dryer or radiators as if you lived where i live you would too, the air isnt the cleanest and makes my clothes smell horrid even if only out for an hour :-(
#39
I use the tumble. My twirler has taken a turn for the worst and if I put anything on it, they slide to the ground - need to get it fixed. Mum2Connor&Cerys - I'll borrow your partner please, mines cut the grass and going up the tip, so he needs a rest!
