Hi Matt
Hope you have some cool breezes on Waiheke.
For everyone else NZ is having a heat wave. Some places in the 30s'C which, as an Aussie by birth, I should laugh at calling a heatwave but I have become acclimatised. I moved from Sydney to escape the heat and they have had record temps over 45'C this summer. Even down here in the south we have forecast 27'C again today and 33' for Wednesday, which if it happens will be a record.
My sister asks when I am moving to Antarctica.

Well, Matthew does have reason to look that way, if not Scarlett. Drying clothes outside is obviously better for the planet. And some say it's good for the clothes!

Oh, trust me, I know.

Mom has a line in the back yard, and when I wash clothes in the late spring through early autumn, I hang them out to dry.

Great way to dry bed linens, especially if there is a good breeze.

With temps like that,  Antarctica sounds  good!

I agree, it makes them smell fresher!

Sure does! My mother used to line-dry comforters, too.

I think for comforters, that makes the most sense.  Easier to do that than cram it in a drier.

Hiya BetterMost friends.

Hope everyone is doing well!   Work was a little busy today,  so I'm glad the day is over!

Tomorrow I have off, because I have the final part of my root canal to get taken care of, the permanent crown is put on.   No other appointments that day, so I can laze around the apartment, if I choose.

Sorry for repeating myself but the best way to dry comforters, IMO, is to put them back on the bed, damp! We have such a dry climate in Colorado, that they're dry in no time, and the air is refreshingly hydrated!
May 2019 be better for us all.

That might work well in Colorado, but that would not work very well in the humid climate of the Mid-Atlantic region. All you would end up with is a wet bed.

Around here, being hung outdoors on a clothesline in a good stiff breeze dries a comforter and gives it a nice, fresh scent that is wonderful the first time you get back into bed.
